Kofi Kingston becomes 1st ever black man to emerge WWE champion

Kofi Kingston Beats Daniel Bryan, Wins WWE Championship At WrestleMania 35

Kofi Nahaje Sarkodie-Mensah is a Ghanaian-American professional wrestler now signed to WWE, under the ring name Kofi Kingston, where he performs on the SmackDown brand and is the current WWE Champion in his first reign.

It was a long, meandering road that took Becky Lynch from SummerSlam in 2018 to the main event of WrestleMania 35. And now she has two titles to back that up. I will say that with what occurred yesterday at WrestleMania 35, I'll be paying a bit more attention from here on.

The Irish star became the first woman to pin Ronda Rousey in WWE at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday, taking away both her unbeaten singles record and her Raw title.

The post-match celebration was one for the ages and extremely inspirational.

Finn Balor also won a singles title at WrestleMania 35, making it four-for-four when it comes to new champions on the Red Brand. But who could that be?

National Burrito Day: Here are the best deals
Pretty simple, right? Willy's Mexicana Grill is offering a build your own burrito or bowl for just $4.04 at all locations. It's a feast for the senses and no strain on your wallet, so you'd better take advantage while the deals are on.

Now that Kofi is WWE champion, he could face Bryan in a rematch or he may move on to the next challenger, though that decision will likely not come until the April 9 edition of SmackDown Live. Will Reigns give Rollins some rest, or will he come right for the Universal Championship that he was forced to relinquish in October?

Baron Corbin defeated Kurt Angle in Angle's Farewell match.

In addition to Kingston's victory being of historical importance, it is also socially significant for WWE fans as his ascension to the top of the company's ranks provides much-needed representation for its viewers.

In truth though, despite it being a good, hard-hitting match, the fact that WrestleMania had been going on for six hours by the time they got into the ring meant the atmosphere wasn't as good as it should have been.
