One of the things fans have been clamouring for in recent years is a Queen of the Ring tournament. There have been King of the Ring tournaments since 1985 but we have yet to have a female equivalent. Now, it appears that would have changed this year.
Bryan Alvarez mentioned on Wrestling Observer Live that his belief is that there was a plan to do a tournament this year. He also mentioned that this would not have been a Mae Young Classic. Here is the quote, courtesy of Ringside News:
“A couple of days ago we were talking about the Mae Young Classic and coronavirus and everything like that. I believe that the actual idea for this year was a Queen Of The Ring Tournament, so not a Mae Young Classic, but a Queen Of The Ring Tournament. That is now off due to coronavirus. Had there not been a global pandemic I believe what you would have seen this Summer is the Queen Of The Ring Tournament.”
WWE has been going down a list of first for their female wrestlers in recent years. We have seen them now participate in Royal Rumbles, Money in the Bank ladder matches, Elimination Chambers, and Hell in a Cells. A version of the King of the Ring would be the logical next step.
