King and Queen of the Ring 2024 premium live event will feature two final matches for both the men’s and women’s division tournaments under the titular name that ends this weekend in Saudi Arabia. The semifinals went down during this week’s Raw to produce the two first finalists for the tourneys.

The Queen of the Ring 2024 tournament semifinal first took place on Raw where Lyra Valkyria defeated IYO SKY to advance to the final match in what appears to be the biggest win of Lyra’s young career as she defeated a former WWE Women’s Champion. SKY hit a powerbomb on Lyra before going for the moonsault only to miss it. SKY went for a sunset flip pin but Lyra reversed and pulled an upset win.

Apart from the Queen of the Ring 2024 tournament, the main event of the May 20 episode of Raw also hosted the semifinal match for the King of the Ring tournament between Gunther and Jey Uso and the former picked up the win to advance to the final match.

The closing moments of the match saw Jey hitting a Spear followed by the Uso splash but he couldn’t capitalize as Gunther inadvertently knocked out the referee and the pin count was delayed. Gunther got up on his feet and locked in a submission hold to which Jey passed out. The referee called for the match bell before declaring Gunther to be the winner.

As mentioned above, the WWE King and Queen of the Ring 2024 premium live event will host both the final matches of the King and Queen of the Ring tournaments at the Jeddah Superdome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, May 25.
