April 7, 2019, will go down in history.
Dubbed “The Showcase of the Immortals, "WrestleMania 35 lived up to the hype as MetLife Stadium put 82,265 screaming fans through the turnstiles to witness the first-ever all-female Main Event. As Becky Lynch etched her name into the history books as only the second women’s double champion in WWE history, another seasoned veteran stole the show in typical fashion as he was finally able to get his due respect.
After 11 grueling years in the WWE, Kofi Kingston finally experienced his career-defining WrestleMania moment, defeating Daniel Bryan to become the new WWE heavyweight champion. The win not only put him in the prestigious " Triple Crown” group—a list of past and present wrestlers who have held heavyweight, tag team and intercontinental championship titles reigns in their careers—but it leads wrestling into a new era.
Ever since he made his debut in 2006, Kofi oozed potential to be a main-card wrestler thanks to his unbelievable in-ring ability. He joined WWE’s Raw show in 2008 and has been a regular talent on low-to mid-card matches. Kingston has shown the world that if you believe in yourself and stand true to your character—eventually you will be rewarded heavily. The fruits of his labor began to show when Kingston met Xavier Woods and Big E Langston and formed the New Day, a group that would propel Kingston to become a WWE fan favorite.
