Wrestlemania 35: Kofi Kingston Debuts New WWE Championship Belt

Wrestlemania 35 has already surprised with new champions being crowned throughout the big show, but one of the titles fans definitely want to see change hands most was the WWE Championship. Going into the big event, Kofi Kingston has been on a high as fans have been wanting him to dethrone the "New" Daniel Bryan as champion. Now that Kofi Kingston has managed to defeat Daniel Bryan and officially become the WWE Champion, there's a brand new belt to celebrate.

After a hard fought match with many twists and turns, Kofi Kingston and the New Day unveiled the brand new WWE Championship Title Belt, and it's a big upgrade from Bryan's hemp influenced makeover.

Kingston vs. Bryan was one of the biggest angles of Wrestlemania 35 as Kingston has managed to build a groundswell of support ever since he was added a replacement during WWE's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. After he and his New Day partners managed to fight his way into a title shot at the biggest event of the year, it was truly Kofimania in all sense of the word.
