However, it’s been revealed that the winners won’t just be getting a shiny trophy.

In a post on social media, Triple H confirmed the winners of the two tournaments will receive World Championship matches at SummerSlam.

“So i have an announcement on that, in the past King and Queen of the Ring it was such an honour to be in that tournament and win that tournament, on your own to have that launch you to another palce, but I wanted that tournament to stand on its own, and I didn’t want to announce this part of it until we got here. But I’ll let all of you know tonight that the winner of the King of the Ring tournament and the winner of the Queen of the Ring tournament will both go on to recieve championship matches with the title of their respective brands.

So they will both get World Title shots, either WWE or World Title at SummerSlam.”
