Finn Balor and Zelina Vega are finalists for King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown
Finn Balor and Zelina Vega have reserved their places for the finals of the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments.
WWE’s King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments now have their first finalists after the semi-final matches at SmackDown.
After months of rumors, WWE Not only revealed that King of the Ring will return in 2021, but that he will also host his very first Queen’s Crown tournament. The matches to determine the winners of these two tournaments have already started and the finals will both take place at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia next week.
Finn Balor progresses
In fact, after Friday night’s SmackDown, half of each finale has now been decided. Finn Balor and Sami Zayn were the first Superstars to fight for a place on the Crown Jewel map. The two made it to SmackDown’s opener and had a great back-and-forth. However, the winner of this one was never really in doubt.
Sami Zayn’s Syrian heritage means it is not safe for him to travel and compete in Saudi Arabia, hence the reason he does not appear on a WWE card there yet. Balor doesn’t have that problem, winning the semi-final match and reserving his place in the final. He will now face the winner of Xavier Woods against Jinder Mahal which takes place on Raw on Monday.
Vega goes to the crown jewel
Zelina Vega and Carmella faced off for a place in the Queen’s Crown final in what was a much harder game to predict. It became a little easier to see which direction this was going to go when Liv Morgan, who was beaten last week by Carmella appeared at ringside. The distraction allowed Vega to wrap Carmella up and continue her journey to become the first-ever Queen’s Crown tournament winner.
The other semi-final match of the Queen’s Crown tournament will take place on Raw next Monday. Vega will face off against Doudrop or Shayna Baszler at Crown Jewel to determine the winner. The match will go down in history for more than the very first Queen’s Crown Final. It also means that two women’s matches will take place for the first time on a Saudi map. So far, there have only been two in total, one at each of the previous events.
