Can a Queen of the Ring Event Work in Today’s WWE?

Published

on

Sasha Banks WWE Queen Of The Ring

Rumors are swirling about WWE bringing back a throwback event for the next all-women’s PPV.  A Queen of the Ring tournament sounds like a good idea as a focal point for the PPV considering the ever-evolving Women’s Evolution.

Many fans remember the King of the Ring, which was considered one of the big five PPVs for WWE back in the 1990s.  King of the Ring had its ups and downs, but it was mostly known for the birth of Austin 3:16.  The iconic moment still stands the test of time twenty two years later, however others such as Owen Hart, Triple H, and Edge certainly benefited from the once-prestigious tournament.

After Brock Lesnar’s win in 2002, King of the Ring slowly began to fade out.  The last tournament was in 2015,where Bad News Barrett would later become King Barrett to celebrate the win.  Before that was the infamous King Sheamus, who won the one prior back in 2010.

The allure and beneficial factor of King of the Ring definitely dissipated by the time it was brought back.  King of the Ring used to be a big deal, meaning that the winner was definitely en route to a huge push or a WWE Championship opportunity down the road.  The accolade was something that a few men could add to their list of accomplishments.

So let’s fast forward to now with these Queen of the Ring ideas.  Could this really work in today’s WWE that is struggling to create lasting moments and new stars?

It depends on the commitment factor for the company; and that lies on the success and reception of the event if it did happen.  There is certainly use for it, as the tournament can be used to elevate talent such as Ruby Riott, Peyton Royce, or Sasha Banks.  On the flip side, it wouldn’t be no surprise if someone such as Alexa Bliss or Mandy Rose could take the win to garner extra heat for their respective character.  That would certainly work, as Bliss is an example of someone who is very much over and the company seems to be completely behind her.

Consistency also matters, in which it is crucial to make the Queen of the Ring idea work.  That goes hand in hand with the storytelling aspect that the company has been struggling with for some time now.  Gaps in logic with missed opportunities have done more harm than good, and with Evolution’s success, it wouldn’t be fair to the women if Queen of the Ring was one and done thanks to those poor factors.

Queen of the Ring is a great idea that could certainly help the Women’s Division.  Having the tournament at the Women’s PPV would create interest for fans that want something to look forward to.  There is no doubt that the talent would shine during the Queen of the Ring – even the potential for possible Match of the Year candidates is high at an event such as this. 

WWE has all of the tools to make this a success if at all possible this is true.  Overall, it would be beneficial for the Women’s Division, and it will help the Evolution become full circle –something that the Division is meant to be.

SmackDown Live: Should The Miz Become A Babyface?

Published

on

WWE The Miz

The Miz is a natural-born heel. the kind of performer who is so over the top, you cannot help but love him and hate him at the same time. David Levin asks if he should turn face.

I have always subscribed to a theory in professional wrestling that if one superstar becomes a heel, one must become a babyface. Unless the two characters are able to perform the very difficult “double turn” then which wrestlers draw the short straw becomes a decision for the creative team and the people that truly matter – the McMahon clan.

I am not a fan of Daniel Bryan’s most recent heel turn, but understand how his character was a bit stale. Having him beat A.J. Styles for the WWE title was the right move, but might have been at the wrong time. The feud between two of the best in-ring performers in WWE is a dream matchup that was waiting to happen. The residual effect, however, has made things a bit cramped for some performers, most notably The Miz.

It’s hard to see both Bryan and The Miz, two of the best who feed off each other, on the same side of the fence. It also begs the question – should WWE, in turn, make The Miz a babyface and create an arc that finds these two face-to-face at WrestleMania 35 with the company title on the line?

The Miz is a natural-born heel. the kind of performer who is so over the top, you cannot help but love him and hate him at the same time. He is  a combination of Chris Jericho, Ric Flair and Gino Hernandez wrapped tightly into an explosive character who gets over with the fans and draws heat when he needs to.

Heels were supposed to control matches in years gone by and knew when to sell for an opponent and let a match speak for itself. With Maryse by his side, he is every bit Tully Blanchard with Baby Doll, and when given a microphone to accentuate his persona he is WWE gold.

Why he does not have a title around his waist right now is a mystery yet to be solved. A confrontation with Bryan, who is the top heel by far on the blue brand, with the WWE fanbase squarely in his corner is another angle the creative team should look long and hard at pulling off.

The reality star turned professional wrestler turned movie star should still be considered an underrated commodity for what he does on screen and how he is a money maker off camera. But in honesty, taking his current character and changing his position from heel to babyface might be his biggest challenge in WWE to date.
