Please know, I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, and I don’t really use Twitter, so if this has been discussed, my bad.
I was thinking of potential MITB scenarios, and one I thought of is the following.
Big E wins MITB, and Kofi beats Lashley for the world title.
Kofi and Lashley square off in a match where they go through hell (maybe even a blade job on Kofis part), the match being a war is key, plus it’s important that Lashley comes out looking strong. In a perfect world after the win Kofi gets a Kofimania like reaction.
After the bell rings Kofi and Woods are crying and celebrating, they both wave for E to come out, he does, then just like at mania E gets the belt to present it to Kofi. Ideally he has tears in his eyes as he’s doing this, E would have to put on an acting performance where while he’s crying he seems conflicted. Have a moment where Kofi gives him a look, then E knocks him out, takes out Woods and cashes in his MITB. Id want the turn to be similar to Owens turning on Jericho where Jericho has that moment where he knows before the actual turn. I’d also do something during the match where Woods becomes vulnerable and E exploits that when he turns, so for example Woods hurts his knee, and E kicks him in the knee after knocking out Kofi.
If followed up the next day on Raw with a strong promo where E talks about being sick of living in the New Day shadow, I think this could be a big break for him and could really freshen up the Raw main event scene. Main event of SS on the Raw side, E vs Kofi, and you can still do Lashley vs Goldberg just not for a title which I think fans would be much more accepting of.
Especially with fans being back still being a novelty, I think the fans go nuts for this
I have two questions:
Do you think there is a chance in hell we see this?
Would you want to see this?
