The finals of the King of the Ring tournament were originally scheduled for the Clash of Champions pay-per-view but last week it was decided to have the final match on this week’s WWE Monday Night Raw. It was down to Baron Corbin vs. Chad Gable to crown the new king.
They had a very good match and it was one of Corbin’s best matches and the best Gable has been allowed to look since he’s moved to the main roster from NXT. In the final minutes of the match, Gable had a deep ankle lock on Corbin and he almost forced him to tap out but Corbin was able to get his hand to the bottom rope.
In the end, Corbin was able to hit the End of Days to get the pin and to become the King of the Ring. Corbin joins a long list of KOTR winners including Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Ken Shamrock, Billy Gunn, Harley Race, and Wade Barrett.
