The King of the Ring tournament returns on tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw with the first few matches. As of writing, there’s no word on exactly which matches will kick-off the tournament tonight, but what we do know is that all roads will lead to Clash of Champions on September 15th. Over the weekend, WWE revealed the brackets for this year’s KOTR, providing us with some top-quality matches with the potential to steal whatever show they happen to be on.
We ran down all the participants in this year’s tournament, now we know who exactly is going to be paired up together in the opening rounds. Check out the upcoming matches below.
The talent pool within this year’s King of the Ring is insane, with hard-hitters mixing it up with some of the best technical wrestlers on the roster today. At the moment, it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner, but as the tournament progresses I’m sure we’ll see at least a couple of these names stand out.
I’m personally really looking forward to seeing the likes of Ali and Buddy Murphy clash once again, and checking out some dream matches between Cesaro and Samoa Joe, Cedric Alexander and Sami Zayn and then Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin later on in the opening round.
Which matches are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.
