• King Of The Ring Tournament Could Be Returning Soon

On this week’s episode of SmackDown, King Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura will take place, with the winner getting to keep the King Of The Ring crown.

Corbin appeared on this week’s episode of WWE’s The Bump and teased the return of the King Of The Ring tournament.

Here’s what he said:

“I think that everybody’s kind of had their eye on it, just like people do with championship titles. They want an opportunity at that, they want a chance, they want to earn it, they want to own it, and I think that’s what the crowd does to people, and then you have people that are cowards, like Shinsuke, that want to steal it, but at least Xavier Woods wants to earn an opportunity to wear the crown.

I think that’s important to [Xavier], to his career, and I’m happy to make it a disappointment, a regret in his long career that he will have, that he came up short in a tournament that he cares so dearly about.

But the tournament is what’s necessary to wear that crown, and I won it. If you want a shot, you talk to somebody, maybe cry to a few people, and try to get another tournament set up.

Xavier Woods, I would love to face him in that tournament, absolutely. It could be in the finals, it could be first round. I mean, his dream will be cut short, but I’m happy to do it. I’m happy to defend it in the right circumstances.”

This led to the following conversation on Twitter:
