Kofi Kingston has remained on top of the mountain in the WWE, and the reign as the WWE Champion continues.

The top champion on SmackDown Live successfully retained his WWE Title over Kevin Owens at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view event in Hartford, CT.

This match got booked once Owens turned heel and attacked Kingston on the April 23 episode of SmackDown Live. Instead, of doing a rematch against Daniel Bryan, WWE went in this direction. The reason for that at the time was due to Bryan being sidelined with an unknown injury.

Moving along, Bryan got his rematch for the WWE Title against Kingston on a recent episode of Monday Night RAW and then moved to the tag team division where he became the SmackDown Tag Team Champions with Rowan.

Thus, it appears that the program and Owens and Kingston will continue heading into the next pay-per-view event that goes down Friday, June 7th, 2019 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.
