WWE has also announced that the gauntlet match will open SmackDown as Kofi Kingston will have to defeat Sheamus, Cesaro, Rowan, Randy Orton and the WWE United States Champion Samoa Joe if he wants to move on to WrestleMania 35 to compete for Daniel Bryan's WWE Championship.


WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and Kofi Kingston exchanged words this past Tuesday on SmackDown and it was Vince McMahon who placed Kofi in the gauntlet match so that Kofi can "prove" that he deserves the WWE Title match that his New Day brethren have been calling for to happen.

There have been several matches and segments announced for Monday's WWE RAW as well and to check out what's on tap for Monday's show, click here.
