The WWE King and Queen of the Ring tournaments continue.

At a WWE live event on May 11th in Chattanooga, Tennessee, LA Knight got the better of Santos Escobar to move into the quarter-finals of the King of the Ring. Knight will now meet Tama Tonga on the May 17th episode of SmackDown.

Tonga won his own first-round match 24 hours earlier, seeing off the challenge of Angelo Dawkins. The Street Profits star was a late addition to the tournament after Bobby Lashley was forced to pull out due to injury.

On the same card, Tiffany Stratton defeated Michin to advance to the quarter-finals of the Queen of the Ring. Up next for Stratton is a huge match with Bianca Belair — also on the upcoming episode of SmackDown. Belair got past Candice LeRae in the first round.
