King Corbin, the most recent winner of the King of the Ring, has said how he would like the tournament to return.
Speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Corbin had this to say about the King of the Ring crown:
“I think everyone has had their eye on it, just like they do with a Championship title. They want an opportunity, a chance, and they want to earn it. That’s what the crown does to people. Then you have people who are cowards like Shinsuke who want to steal it. At least Xavier Woods wants to earn an opportunity to wear the crown. It’s important to him and his career. I’m happy to make it a disappointment and a regret in his long career, that he came up short in something he really wanted. A tournament is what’s necessary to wear the crown. If you want a shot, talk to somebody, cry to people, and get it set up. Xavier Woods, I would love to face him in the tournament. His dream will be cut short, but I’m happy to do it and defend it in the right circumstances.”
We have not seen the King of the Ring tournament for almost two years now, but it seems that Corbin is not alone in wanting it to return. Not only is Xavier Woods a known advocate for its return, but now it appears WWE Producer and on-screen official Adam Pearce has also had some conversations about a potential return, with him remarking, “I know that I have had many conversations with @BaronCorbinWWE on this very topic. Stay tuned.”
