After weeks of obstacles, The New Day finally jumped through Vince McMahon's final hoop. At the beginning of tonight's SmackDown Live, Vince McMahon announced that if Big E & Xavier Woods could run their own gauntlet later on SmackDown, Kofi Kingston would qualify to face Bryan at WrestleMania 35.

The New Day went through Gallows & Anderson, Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura, The Bar, The Usos (via forfeit), and Bryan & Rowan (via count out) to put their best friend in the WWE Title match at MetLife Stadium. After the match, the camera cut backstage to Vince McMahon, who confirmed that Kofi vs. Bryan is official. Meanwhile, Kofi sprinted to the ring to celebrate with his brothers as the locker room emptied in support of Kingston.
