WWE Possibly Doing “Queen Of The Ring” Tournament, Reason Behind It

King of the Ring KOTR WWF WWE

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 6, 2014) – WWF Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2014 we lost Old School WWF Tag Team Wrestler “The Gigolo” Jimmy Del Ray (Real name: David Ferrier) after suffering a heart attack at the age of 52.

The highlight of Jimmy Del Ray’s Professional Wrestling career was certainly teaming with “The Doctor of Desire” Tom Prichard in SMW Smoky Mountain Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation as ‘The Heavenly Bodies’.

After he left the WWF, he wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling under the name ‘Jimmy Graffiti’.

† REST IN PEACE JIMMY DEL RAY

(November 30, 1962 – December 6, 2014)

• WWE Possibly Doing “Queen Of The Ring” Tournament, Reason Behind It

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials are discussing about a potential “Queen Of The Ring” tournament in 2019.

The idea behind doing it is that they’ll feature this tournament at the next all-women’s PPV. WWE wants to do at least one all-women’s PPV every year, but it’s possible that WWE does two all-women’s PPV every year, similar how they will be doing two PPVs in Saudi Arabia every year (as the main reason behind WWE doing an all-women’s PPV this year was to ensure people don’t complain about an all-men’s PPV in Saudi Arabia).

The next PPV in Saudi Arabia is currently scheduled for April 2019 after WrestleMania 35, so it’s possible this proposed tournament takes place sometime after it.

We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
