After a little back and forth trash talk, Lashley agreed to the match. However, the details are yet to be confirmed. Now Lashley’s manager, MVP, has been irritating Kofi Kingston for several weeks on Raw. Truth be told, this does look like another storyline for Lashley’s championship reign.

Kofi Kingston hasn’t really been chasing the WWE Championship since he lost at WrestleMania to Brock Lesnar. Now he finally has his chance to show the world what he can do if given the opportunity.

Since Kofi managed to pull a fast one over Lashley the last time they went head to head, Xavier Woods must be feeling pretty confident in himself. A match in the dreaded ‘Career Ender‘ is no joke by any means. The fans are eager to see what Woods has in store for him later tonight.
