Thanks to WWE’s new Wild Card rule, two SmackDown wrestlers took part in the main event of Raw this week.
Without the weight of WrestleMania 35 behind it, Kingston versus Bryan part two was good but could never reach similarly great heights. For much of match Bryan was in control and the challenger nearly had Kingston dead to rights on more than a few occasions.
A final of attempt of grasping onto the LeBell Lock was what spelled the end for Bryan. Kingston blocked the submission, got back to his feet, and hit Trouble in Paradise for the clean win.
No Kevin Owens run-in, just a good quality match from Kofi Kingston and Daniel Bryan as the main event of this week’s episode of Raw.
Clearly out of the WWE Championship picture, what’s the next move for Bryan?
