WWE’s recently revived King of the Ring tournament now has its official bracket.
WWE released the bracket today on WWE.com, and there are some interesting first round matchups in there. On the SmackDown side of things, Ali vs. Buddy Murphy should be excellent, as should Apollo Crews vs. Andrade. However, considering his problems with Elias’s buddy Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens’ chances of getting out of the first round seem slim.
The Raw side of the bracket will bring us matchups such as Cedric Alexander vs. Sami Zayn and Cesaro vs. Samoa Joe.
The King of the Ring tournament is set to begin next week on Raw and SmackDown LIVE, culminating in the finals at Clash of Champions. The tournament was once a yearly tradition in WWE, but has been dormant since 2015, where Bad News Barrett defeated Neville in the finals.
