During Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown! Live broadcast, Chad Gable pinned Shane McMahon (replacing the injured Elias) and then went on to defeat him again after the match was turned into a two-of-three falls match. Gable will now face Corbin in the finals during next week’s WWE RAW broadcast in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The King of the Ring tournament finals were originally set to take place at this Sunday night’s Clash of Champions pay-per-view event, but the card currently has eleven matches without the King of the Ring match. That is the likely reason for the change.
WWE.com posted the following, confirming the news:
Who will take the crown in the WWE King of the Ring tournament?
The original bracket included eight Superstars from Raw and eight Superstars from SmackDown LIVE in the tourney to become WWE royalty.
Baron Corbin will face Chad Gable in the final match of the tournament.
Don’t miss the King of the Ring Final next Monday on Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network!
