WWE News: Two more WWE Raw superstars advanced to King Of The Ring Quarterfinal
King of the Ring tournament first-round matches continued on WWE Raw, this week ended with surprising outcomes. The favorite Drew McIntyre came up short against Cedric Alexander which appeared to be unreal. McIntyre controlled the beginning of the match by slamming his opponent into the barricades. Ricochet tried to fight back with a missile dropkick only to receive a Glasgow Kiss. But the Superhero countered hitting a Recoil and followed up with the 630-Splash for the victory.
In the second King of the Ring tournament matchup on WWE Raw, The Miz competed against Baron Corbin. The Hollywood A-lister cut a promo before the match hinting it would be an easy win for him that did not turn out to be. Miz was able to deliver his finisher Skull Crushing Finale but Corbin kicked out of that. Corbin soon rocked him while doing a springboard and hit the End of Days to advance to the second round.
King of the Ring tournament continued with more first-round matches on WWE Raw. Another two fresh contests were there on the show to advance two new superstars into the second round of this prestigious battle. In the first announced matchup, Ricochet met Drew McIntyre whereas, in the second one, The Miz took on Baron Corbin.
WWE.com hinted Drew McIntyre was a huge favorite to win the 2019 King of the Ring who has a date on WWE Raw with the high-flyer Ricochet to produce a solid matchup,
“The imposing McIntyre has a clear size advantage in this high-stakes matchup, but Ricochet is riding a wave of momentum following his tag team win this past Monday night. Will the high-flyer get one step closer to officially becoming King Ricochet on Monday night, or will McIntyre crush those dreams with a Claymore Kick?”

On the other contest, the veteran Miz had the upper-hand since he is a Grand Slam winner in the WWE. He is a former WWE Champion, a two-time United States Champion, an eight-time Intercontinental Champion, and a seven-time Tag Team Champion. So winning King of the Ring would add another feather to his hat which is why he looked determined to pick up the victory. But WWE eventually reversed outcomes for both the matches to give us a pleasant surprise.
