Tagging in. We are less than a month away from WrestleMania 39 and that means it is time to get everything together for the card. That is going to include all kinds of special matches as the top stars come together for the biggest event of the year. WWE has already announced multiple matches for the card and will add another one this week, but things might be a little different on the way there.

Last week on SmackDown, WWE announced a fatal five way match to crown a new #1 contender for the Intercontinental Title, with the title match coming at WrestleMania 39. However, WWE has announced that Kofi Kingston has suffered a leg injury and will be replaced by his partner Xavier Woods in the #1 contenders match. Woods joins Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Karrion Kross and LA Knight vying for the title shot against Gunther at WrestleMania.

There is a lot of talent involved. Check out some of them in action:

Opinion: This is something that had to be done as Kingston is not exactly able to wrestle at the moment. If nothing else, Woods is about as perfect of a replacement as you can get for Kingston as the two are incredible close and Woods can handle himself in the ring just fine. Hopefully the match works out, as we could be in for a good show as these people try to make it to WrestleMania.
