WWE is considering a Queen of the Ring tournament in 2019. The promotion has held 20 King of the Ring tournaments previously. According to a report from the Wrestling Observer, the idea has been talked about as a potential format for a 2nd all-Women PPV next year.
“An idea being talked about for 2019 would be a Queen of the Ring tournament with the main roster women,” wrote Dave Meltzer. “At this point, it’s just an idea thrown around but they are looking for ideas for a second all women’s PPV show next year.”
The company is said to be pleased with the response to Evolution and are looking to do similar shows once a year.
WWE Queen Of The Ring
The Mae Young Classic has generally been for prospects and developmental Superstars. The Queen of the Ring, however, would be for WWE’s main roster Superstars. WWE did hold a similar tournament recently, albeit it did not carry the King of the Ring name. The WWE World Cup concluded at Crown Jewel last month, with Shane McMahon being declared the winner.
The King of the Ring tournament ran almost annually from 1985 to 2002. It skipped 1990 and 1992. The event became more scarcely held after that. The last tournament was held in 2015 and was won by Bad News Barrett. Previously, the last tournament had been 2010 and won by Sheamus.
