It has been reported that there was originally a plan for a Queen of the Ring event to take place for the women of WWE. Since 2018, fans and talent alike have been chomping at the bit for another all women’s event. From Evolution to the Mae Young Classic tournament we have wanted something – anything. Rumor is there was going to be a Queen of the Ring this year, but now it is off the table.
According to the Wrestling Observer Live, the plan of the Queen of the Ring tournament/event has been removed as a result of the COVID pandemic. This is despite the company continuing to put on pay-per-views every month and hasn’t stopped putting on shows throughout the health crisis.
Furthermore, the last King of the Ring tournament in 2019 that saw Baron Corbin win wasn’t a solo pay-per-view event. It was a weekly event with the tournament playing out until we had a winner.
Allegedly the Queen of the Ring event was supposed to take place in 2019 as a follow up to Evolution being that year’s all women’s event. That of course didn’t occur.
Triple H commented in April about a third MYC to happen this year, which doesn’t seem likely if they can’t put together a Queen of the Year tournament as it is. MYC requires talent from around the world, and due to COVID, this makes sense not to have. Not having a Queen of the Ring tournament or any all-woman focused event/tournament seems to just be poor planning.
Would you want to see a Queen of the Ring tournament? Who would be a part of your brackets? Would Charlotte Flair be an obvious winner?
