It was earlier reported that WWE is going to conduct brand specific pay-per-views once Summerslam gets over. Earlier, the Smackdown Live commissioner, Shane McMahon announced that the blue brand will conduct the Backlash pay-per-view on September 11th. And if going by the rumor mill then another old PPV is coming back to the scenario.

Reports suggest that WWE is willing to continue with the prestigious King of the Ring tournament and even wants to make it a full-fledged PPV. According to 441mania.com, WWE officials have submitted a request for the “King of the Ring” phrase on July 28th. The application contained a description of the PPV which goes something like this:

“a show about professional wrestling…the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service.”

The King of the Ring tournament was held first in the year 1985. Since then WWE had 20 King of the Ring winners. Going with the rich history of the tournament even a PPV was held on a yearly basis from 1993 to 2002. The finals of the tournament used to be held on the PPV whereas the qualifiers used to take place on either Raw or Smackdown episodes.

 

 

Last time, WWE held the tournament was last year, with Bad News Barrett winning the competition and becoming King Barrett. Now, since brand specific PPVs are supposed to increase the PPV numbers in the calendar, it is likely that King of the Ring may be coming back as part of either Raw or Smackdown.

Speaking of the brands, Smackdown does have a Heavyweight champion where we will get a new Universal champion at Summerslam. A Reddit user De Belt Guy revealed a possibility about how the new championship will look like. He said that both the championship bets will look similar. The World heavyweight Championship will be blue-ish whereas the new Universal championship will have red touch in it.
