Posted on August 08, 2019 by John Harris

The WWE Championship is the most prestigious title on Smackdown Live and it will one the line when current Champion Kofi Kingston will defend his crown against the viper Randy Orton. Kofi won the coveted title at Wrestlemania 35 in one of the most memorable Wrestlemania bouts in history.

Kofi ousted Daniel Bryan and has since defeated Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens and everyone who came in his way during the months since Wrestlemania. Now, he will feud with Randy Orton, at the biggest party of summer but that won’t be all. The WWE Championship is the biggest title up for grabs at Smackdown 2019 Live, and thus there are many names that emerge as contenders.
