That’s one way to go. The King of the Ring tournament is in full swing and that means that we are in for some interesting wrestling. With so many options to win the tournament, this year’s edition contains a rather stacked field. There are a lot of people having good matches in the whole field, though now we are approaching the semifinals, though not without some controversy.
This week on Monday Night Raw, a King of the Ring quarterfinal match between Samoa Joe and Ricochet went to a double pin. As a result, the official ruling stated that both of them would move on to the semifinals to face Baron Corbin on next week’s show. The winner will face the SmackDown Live winner at Clash of Champions. This will be the first triple threat match in King of the Ring history.
It was a surprising way to go. Check out how the match went down:
Opinion: That’s one way to go, though I’m worried that it leads to Corbin getting in without having to pin Ricochet. You can almost imagine Ricochet finishing Samoa Joe off so Corbin can steal the pin, which is quite the heel move but it’s a way to advance a rather unpopular person. Corbin did look better on this week’s show, but I’m not sure if that is enough to get him over his rather high hump.
