2018 proved to be a landmark year for WWE amidst all ups and downs faced by the Superstars and the company as a whole. With WWE already boasting big plans for 2019, there could officially be a female version of the historic “King Of The Ring” tournament next year.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is considering the idea of organizing a “Queen Of The Ring” tournament at some point in 2019. The tournament would be exclusive to the main roster and could be the theme of something much bigger.
At this stage, the idea is to have another all-women pay-per-view event host the Queen Of The Ring tournament next year. 2018’s Evolution turned out to be a huge success and WWE reportedly wants to do at least one all-female PPV every year.
The last ‘King Of The Ring’ tournament was won by ex-Superstar Bad News Barrett in 2015. It’s been 3 years that WWE hasn’t hosted a “sequel” to that tournament.
Vince McMahon is looking to end 2018 on a high note come TLC and would definitely want the momentum to roll through next year. The women’s tournament could be yet another game-changer that WWE should set its eyes on while diversifying its content in 2019.
It is to be noted that the Queen Of The Ring Tournament is only an idea at this point as WWE looks into every possible way of making the second all-female pay-per-view event much bigger than the original one.
Evolution, the first-ever all women’s PPV has set the bar with its stellar success and Vince would want to take the Women’s Revolution a step ahead with “Evolution 2.0“.
Big Show won the second annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 31 mostly because of “The Giant” gimmick that he once used in WCW.
Needless to say, “The Queen” Charlotte Flair would be the undisputed favorite to win the inaugural Queen Of The Ring tournament.
