    Yeah... I don't know what they do next week to advance this, but as it stands, this gauntlet only detracted from my anticipation of this match.

    Yeah the magic wasn't there like before still a good Match, but to me I'm worry about WWE running outta ideas to screw over Kofi.

    I guess he'll have to beat Vince to get his spot then

    Exactly what big hoop does Kofi need to jump through now to get the match? Wrestle the whole 2 hours. Overbooking, this was enough to set up the match.

    gotta have that McMahon heat I guess.

    I’m guessing Stephanie or Trips come out and neuter old man Vince at some point...that’s the only way I see this changing

    Goddamn, how are we gonna capitalise on this ultimate underdog Kofi magic? I know, we’ll have him run through 5 guy’s in a row! No one likes a loser!

    I loved the guantlet and loved what they did with it. A total kick in the dick but it didn't make Kofi look bad at all.

    Imagine if Kofi actually doesn't get the title match at Mania and ends up in the Andre the Giant battle royal. And next week Vince announces that Bryan will defend the title against...Kane!

    If I had more faith in WWE creative I would say stretch the Kofi thing Summerslam and have that final feel good moment close out the show because we all know that match at Mania won’t be the last match on the card

    Wasn't quite as magical as his first performance because you knew at the very least he was going all the way to Orton through hook or by crook. The groundswell around him, and Rollins last year, was based around how unexpected and gutsy the gauntlet performances were but with this everyone in the building knew this was gonna be a long one for him.

    The over-booking at the end didn't bug me a lot, I saw it coming a mile away because no one beats Vince McMahon. I am interested as to how they get Kofi into the match still, but while the gauntlet was entertaining on the surface, I think the whole idea was a big swing and a miss. We didn't need to see Kofi overcome a bunch more adversity to make him our hero, already did it once.

    What the hell has Charlotte done to her face? She looks like an out of work pornstar thesedays.

    Of all the women in WWE, besides Bayley, Charlotte should be the least sexual, she's meant to be serious and all about her talents but she looks like the lost Kardashian sister.

    I've never given her looks a second thought when watching her wrestle personally.

    Having seen Big E’s promo on twitter today, this is really starting to have nods towards a race angle. ‘People like us’ etc.

    Its nice to see this place hasn't turned on Kofi. Its amusing how quickly a lot of wrestling fans online have turned on him getting this push now, because its basically just people being a living meme and being that flip floppy wrestling fan.

    I'm enjoying this. Its organic, its the first instance for a while of a guy getting randomly over with the fans and the WWE not just burying them for daring to get over, they've actually got behind him here. Its fun, and entertaining in an Era that's desperately lacking those things.

    I’m all for the Kofi main event push. It’s been almost 10 years since he last received a major singles push. If only they had continued to push him. He’s always been a solid entertaining midcarder for life.

    Since Feb, he’s had a remarkable rise. Fantastic performance in the Gauntlet match, Elimination Chamber and most recently the Gauntlet match this week. Kofi beating 5 guys does take the piss though. Should have had Joe dq’ed instead and had Rowan getting pinned.

    While I don’t think Bryan vs Kofi is a big enough title match(good for a b level title bout), I’m still glad Kofi is likely to get his opportunity at WM.

    Curious to see how Kofi gets his match. Maybe a roster strike. Hate how Vince is stacking the odds against Kofi. It’s overkill now. Only 2 weeks left till Mania just make the damn match!

    The Gauntlet match was dumb, they should have dirtied up his last two wins instead of protecting Rowan from eating an L when that's meant to be his role as Bryans henchman. And having him go over everyone like that clean only to lose was really dumb. If you're going to have the babyface beat 5 of your top heels in succession, you've got to give the fans and the babyface the payoff.

    Honestly I think this match is the biggest match they could have done for Bryan with how everything else has played out. AJ Styles Title run left everyone else on the roster feeling like a midcarder. Bryan v Joe / Owens / etc doesn't feel like a huge Mania World Title match either.
