Last night, WWE announced the return of its historic King of the Ring tournament after a four-year absence. Sixteen wrestlers eight from Raw and eight from Smackdown – will compete for the symbolic crown and cape.
F4WOnline indicates that it also obtained additional information on this subject. As historically, this would be a direct elimination tournament. However, it would take place in both Raw and Smackdown.
The WWE apparently planned to make the tournament last until Sunday, September 15 and the PPV Clash of Champions who would then see the last two participants face each other in the final.
