King of The Ring and Queen's Crown

WWE has officially confirmed that the King of The Ring will be returning, as well a new tournament for the Women's division called Queen's Crown.

The announcement was made during this week's WWE Draft episode of SmackDown on FOX, with several Superstars teased for the two tournaments.

Here's everything we know right now about King of The Ring 2021 and Queen's Crown.

WWE has not yet confirmed the brackets for the two tournaments, nor who will be competing officially.

The teaser for the King of The Ring tournament featured Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Cesaro, Kevin Owens, Finn Bálor, Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton.

Whilst this isn't a confirmation of who will be taking part in the event, it's a good indication with 8 spots likely needing to be filled. 

The teaser video for Queen's Crown featured Rhea Ripley, Carmella, Shayna Baszler, Naomi, Nia Jax, Zelina Vega, Liv Morgan and Eva Marie.

Again, this isn't confirmation as to who will be competing in the Women's tournament, but with 8 Superstars featured, it is likely this will be the field.

As for the tournament itself, it is believed that both will be concluding on Thursday, October 21st at the WWE Crown Jewel event from Saudi Arabia. WWE is expected to be confirming this in the coming week.

In the third episode of the revamped Turnbuckle Talk podcast, Louis Dangoor and special guest Jon Alba review WWE Extreme Rules and talk about the Finn Balor controversy, they also break down Seth Rollins' comments on the Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network, and discuss Bray Wyatt potentially signing with AEW.
