It was only a few weeks ago where this seemed completely implausible. Kingston wasn't even originally supposed to be in the WWE Championship match at Elimination Chamber. He was on the outside looking in, with Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Mustafa Ali, and Jeff Hardy set to take part in the match.

  • Ariel Helwani tweeted an update on Conor McGregor and wrote that the path is open for McGregor vs. Nate Diaz III, but they need to get a deal done and it isn’t yet: “Seen some reports that McGregor and Masvidal are in talks to fight this summer. No truth to that at all, I’m told. That’s not the current direction and no talks surrounding that fight. As I said last week, the hope is still a summer return and the path is open for the trilogy to happen once and for all. It’s there for the taking but they need to get a deal done and there isn’t one yet.”
