WWE is said to be considering a new take on an old concept for their female Superstars!
After the WWE’s first ever all-women’s pay-per-view back on October 28th, Evolution, many fans have not only wondered, but assumed we will be seeing a second Evolution event next year due to the inaugural show’s success.
While it appears as if another all-women’s pay-per-view event is a certainty, it looks like the company is looking into adding a second all-women’s show. According to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, one idea WWE has been tossing around would be to revive the King Of The Ring pay-per-view, but would be called the ‘Queen Of The Ring’.
Of course, it’s still very early in the process and it should be noted that this is just one idea WWE has been considering as they look to come up with something on top of a second Evolution. The King Of The Ring concept had been discussed to be brought back in the past, as the company’s last tournament came back in 2015 with Bad News Barrett defeating Neville in the Finals. The namesake was last used for pay-per-view in 2002, the year Brock Lesnar won and earned a shot at the Undisputed Championship at SummerSlam.
EA’s Take: I’d be a proponent of King Of The Ring returning for the men, the women, whoever. But, it needs to MEAN SOMETHING. Give the winner a title shot like they did with Brock Lesnar way back in 2002. That’s what killed the concept it lack of importance. At the very least, the winner needs to be elevated like they did with Booker T in 2006. I just don’t want to see any more meaningless ‘Kings’ (or Queens) like Barrett or Sheamus and even Regal to an extent.
