“Very Good Chance” Triple H Brings Back Beloved Event
A new report has indicated that there is a strong belief that Triple H is set to bring back a former staple to the WWE calendar.
The King of the Ring is a tournament held in WWE that dates back to 1985 when Don Muraco won the inaugural tournament. Between 1993 and 2002 it became a pay-per-view event with the likes of Bret Hart, Kurt Angle, and Brock Lesnar winning the tournament during this time.
Over the years it has been more sporadic in WWE but it was revived once again for the 2021 Crown Jewel event with Xavier Woods claiming the crown and now it seems like the event could be making a more permanent comeback.
WrestleVotes has reported that they believe there’s a strong possibility that Triple H will bring back the tournament that he won in 1997 and that it could be an event where the entire tournament takes place in one night:
“There’s a very good chance that King of the Ring is back, and likely back in the format that had happened in the late 80s. The idea is that every single match will happen that night.”
“In the 90s, a lot of the matches happened on Superstars and Raw, with the semi-finals and finals on pay-per-view. If it’s going to come back on pay-per-view, which I would say is probably going to happen, you’re going to have a full-on one-night tournament.”
“I mean, tournament wrestling is old-school wrestling, and Hunter loves old-school wrestling. If it still makes sense, especially when you have 500 people on the roster, you can do it. That’s what they’re going to do.”
