— WWE has seen sweeping changes at the helm ever since Triple H has taken the reigns from Vince McMahon earlier this year. It looks another big one is set to take place in 2023 with the return of the King of the Ring tournament in the form of a PPV/PLE.
— Speaking to GiveMeSports.com, the WrestleVotes account noted that the format that WWE had for this tournament in the late 80s will be returning with every single match taking place on one night rather than having them over the course of a few weeks as WWE has done since then. In the 1990s, while WWE held the semifinals and finals on pay-per-view, the qualifying matches and quarterfinals took place on television. The report goes onto say that with the King of the Ring likely headed back to being a PPV, it will be a full one-night tournament.
— In a separate report, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE has also applied for a trademark for the term “Queen of the Ring” and the speculation is that the women’s tournament will also be taking place combining the two tournaments into a one-night premium live event to take place in 2023.
