2019 WWE King Of The Ring Has Been Determined (SHOW SPOILERS)

And it is…

WWE

After four weeks, and a dwindling field of 16 participants (17 counting Shane McMahon), the revived WWE King of the Ring tournament has come to a conclusion at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, TN.

In a lengthy final match, Baron Corbin defeated Chad Gable to become the 2019 King of the Ring.

Late in the bout, Gable had countered the End of Days into an ankle lock, prompting a long struggle on Corbin’s part. After teasing a potential submission, he finally made the ropes. Shortly after, Gable attempted a tornado DDT, which was countered in mid-motion by Corbin into the End of Days, sealing the win for Corbin.

Corbin previously defeated The Miz, Cedric Alexander, and won a triple threat over Samoa Joe and Ricochet to make the finals. Gable’s three prior wins came over Shelton Benjamin, Andrade, and Shane McMahon.
