It looks like WWE is plotting yet another historic first-ever for the women of their roster. This year, WWE held its first-ever all-female pay-per-view, entitled “Evolution.” It was main evented by a Raw Women’s Championship match between Ronda Rousey and Nikki Bella. Becky Lynch also successfully defended her SmackDown Live Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair in the first-ever Last Woman Standing match.
According to a report from Dave Meltzer in the latest installment of his Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the WWE is tossing around the idea of doing a “Queen Of The Ring” tournament in 2019. Meltzer pointed out WWE is thinking of ideas for a second all-female pay-per-view, and one of the bigger ideas Meltzer has heard talked about is a “Queen Of The Ring” tournament with the main roster female talent.
The men of WWE regularly competed in “King Of The Ring” tournaments in the 90s and early 2000s. It was also a regular PPV event for WWE at one point. However, the tradition was eventually discontinued, and is brought back every few years at random. The last King Of The Ring in WWE was crowned in 2015, as Bad News Barrett defeated Neville in the tournament finals.
