With the announcement of brand-specific PPVs following the Draft, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the WWE is thinking about bringing back old school PPVs to fill its slate. Signs indicate that the fan favorite King of the Ring PPV may make its return.
According to Trademarkia, the company recently filed two trademark applications for “King of the Ring”, one specifically as a professional wrestling show and another for “Computer software, namely, software for the creation of mobile internet applications and client interfaces.”
While it’s not a certainty, it’s safe to assume that fans will once again have a wrestling king (or maybe queen?) to bow down to. The last tournament winner was Wade Barrett in 2015, who unfortunately isn’t with the company anymore. The PPV was an annual event from 1993 to 2002, with recent iterations taking place on WWE’s television programs.
