WWE Queen Of The Ring Crowned In Saudi Arabia

WWE Queen Of The Ring

WWE might have had a Queen’s Crown winner before but now the company has crowned the winner of the first-ever Queen of the Ring tournament.

Sixteen of WWE’s female stars began the journey to try and win the Queen of the Ring tournament. Raw’s side of the bracket saw a surprise contender emerge as Lyra Valkyria defeated Dakota Kai, Zoey Stark, and former WWE Women’s Champion IYO SKY to book her place in the tournament final in Saudi Arabia.

The SmackDown side of the draw saw Nia Jax defeat Naomi before a controversial win over Jade Cargill via disqualification after Jax attempts to use a chair were just about stopped before Cargill smashed the chair into her opponent. The SmackDown semi-final saw Jax defeat Bianca Belair to ensure she’d be facing Lyra Valkyria for the crown.

WWE announced before the final that the stakes had been raised monumentally as the winners of the King and Queen of the Ring tournaments will challenge for a world title at SummerSlam.

Lyra Valkyria/Nia Jax Wins WWE Queen Of The Ring

Now at King & Queen of the Ring in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Lyra Valkyria and Nia Jax have clashed with Jax coming out on top to win the crown.

The match ended when Lyra went for a Powerbomb out of the corner, but Jax was too big and overpowered Lyra leading to an Annihilator splash on Lyra against the turnbuckle.

After the match, WWE’s Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque presented Jax with the Queen of the Ring crown.

Jax will now move on to SummerSlam where she will challenge for the WWE Women’s Championship, which is currently held by Bayley, on August 3rd no matter who holds the title.
