WWE To Use Late 80s Format For The King Of The Ring Event

Triple H took over the WWE’s creative several months back and since then a lot of significant changes have happened such as the presentation of the company’s Premium Live Events as well as the quality of matches itself on the events. WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H, who is also the company’s Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and the Head of Creative isn’t done making changes to Premium Live Events as well as the format and presentation of the event itself.

It was reported sometime last week that there were talks in regards to the WWE bringing back the King of the Ring tournament as a standalone event, but the fans have been speculating how the company will be handling the event in terms of format and presentation. WrestleVotes mentioned to GiveMeSport that there is a very good chance the King of the Ring will be back and the format that will be followed is that of the late 80s, in which the entire tournament will take place in a single night.

WrestleVotes also said in the 90s a lot of the matches would take place on WWE Superstars and WWE RAW and the semi-finals as well as the finals will take place on the PPV itself, but if the event will be back, which will more than likely happen, it will be a one night tournament. The report that was sent out this past week also noted that the King of the Ring Event will also include the Queen of the Ring tournament.

The first-ever King of the Ring PPV took place in 1993 and was won by WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart, but due to declining buy rates, former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon canceled the annual after the 2002 edition.

This is what WrestleVotes said:

“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.”
