Breaking down the Quarterfinals of the 2019 King of the Ring Tournament: WWE Now

Breaking down the Quarterfinals of the 2019 King of the Ring Tournament: WWE Now


Cathy Kelley here for WWE Now. And the King of the Ring Tournament
has entered its quarterfinal stage. So we’re here to break down the next
four match-ups with some bracketology. Starting on the Raw side, Ricochet and
Samoa Joe will square off. Ricochet’s biggest win to date in WWE came
over the Samoan Submission Machine for the United States title at
WWE Stomping Grounds, so can Ricochet repeat history and
route to the semi finals? Also on Raw this Monday will be
Cedric Alexander taking on Baron Corbin. Now Alexander will come into
this contest a bit hobbled after a match with Cesaro last week
on Raw did a number on his leg. So will Corbin exploit the injury to
get one step closer to the throne? On SmackDown LIVE, it’ll be Ali and
Elias vying for a final four spot. Ali won a thriller over Buddy Murphy
to advance to the quarterfinals, while Elias has been bogged down both
with his beef with Kevin Owens and The 24/7 Championship in recent weeks. Can the superstar focus
on the task at hand? And rounding out the first round
will be Chad Gable versus Andrade. Gable silenced all the short
jokes when he came up big versus Shelton Benjamin last week. And Andrade has emerged
as a tournament favorite. So, who will advance? Find out when the King of
the Ring tournament quarterfinals go down this Monday and
Tuesday night on Raw and Smackdown Live.

  22. Andrade vs Ricochet in the finals

  23. If Ricochet doesnt win the KoR im done with WWE

  24. So obvious with Corbin and Elias putting on the crown. All for Vince to see what the pop was like. Thankfully the crowd was so disinterested he might change his mind to Ali or Ricochet but i doubt it.

  25. Cena gonna win the rumble

  36. East or West India Is Just a Trash And A Big Piece Of Garbge on Our Earth

  37. Predictions:

    Ricochet beats Samoa Joe
    Corbin beat Cedric
    Elias beats Ali
    Gable beats Andrade

    Knowing my predictions, I’ll get 1 or 2 of them wrong

  38. Ali vs Ricochet is the way to go don't screw it WWE don't. No Elias no Corbin. Ali & Ricochet let's go

  39. Ricochet vs Andrade

  40. Now that McIntyre is out… my only hope is baron Corbin

  41. Cedric Alexander won't be able to compete in the tournament because he's got injured

  42. I was hoping McIntyre to win but…..corbin or adrade would be next best..

  43. I think from raw ricochet will face andrade from smackdownlive
    Ricochet :: 👍👍👍👍👍
    Andrade :: comment

  44. I hope the highflyer like Ali or Richochet or Alexander will be the Final 🙏

  45. Elias looks like the burger king in the thumbnail.

  46. I was a Quarterfinalist once… you just couldn't see me.

  47. I'm calling it: Richochet vs Chad Gable or Cedric vs Mustafa…who agrees?

  48. It will be pathetic if Baron Corbin wins King of the Ring 👑

  49. Richochet vs Andrade should be the Finale

  50. They might do a twist or something like chad vs joe that would be cool

  51. i hope ricochet for the king of the ring winner

  52. Corbin has to win this.

    Because it’s WWE

  53. Really hope andrade wins but knowing wwe corbin will probably win.
    I have learnt to keep my expectations low

  54. All Hail King Elias 👑 🎶

  55. I hope that the winner won't get any more push from WWE if someone like Corbin won the king of the ring tournament

  56. Drew honestly should be in this. I hate WWE for making him go against Ricochet in the first round.

  57. King Corbin and King Elias would be the worst Decision that WWE has done in the past few years

  58. Mustafa ali will win

  59. No Joe and Ricochet will be the finals

  60. Im fine with anyone being king of the ring except Baron Corbin anyone else is fine in my books would love to see either ricochet or samoa joe as king of the ring

  61. Mustafa ali vs ricochet la final

  62. I'll call it now. Corbin is gonna win.

  63. My eyes are on Cedric vs Ricochet at final

  64. King of the ring looks so trash now man I miss the king Bret Hart’s King Owen Hart’s and King Booker

  65. These king the ring ranks wrestlers. And tells us the new comers that are legitimate talent

  66. The moment drew lost I lost interest.
    Like it's not even about him not winning the competition (altho this thing was made for him) but the fact he lost in the first round and against ricochet of all people 🤦‍♂️.
    SMH wwe

  67. Corbin for the win. Tired of the flippy guys trying to win.

  68. Andrade or corbin im calling it

  69. Mcintyre 😪😢

  70. All hail king corbin

  71. Since drew and ko are out Ricochet vs Ali should be on the final

  72. Baron corbin will be the king

  73. Mustofa Ali ♔ king

  74. I think ricochet will win king of the ring

  75. Samoa Joe and Andrade Cien Almas will be in the finals and Joe will win

  76. Samoa job will win

  77. Cathy kelly smells good😍😍

  78. ALL HAIL KING CEDRIC

  79. At this point since they have Shane a old guy winning everything with this trashy roster have jerry “the king” lawler win the king of the ring 2019 😂

  80. Chad Gable is so green I’m glad I’m watching him at this stage of his career because I know he’ll be a star one day these are memories of course he will not win this tournament of course

  81. ali vs alexander final,,,, ali win,,,,,,,,what is benifit for winner?only a chain foto session,or any title shot match

  82. ANDRADE WILL BE THE KING OF THE RING

  83. Ricochet or Samoa Joe or Chad Gable is gonna win

  84. Gable vs Cedric wouldn’t hurt

  85. The hole universe mad at wwe there making dum moves Drew is out so who's cares but there dum because aew it's dropping in October so they need to let drew lost now

  86. Gable vs Andrade gonna be so awesome if given enough time, like Drew vs Ric.

  87. Ricochet, Ali, or Andrade better win.

    Ricochet needs to win because he came up short on AJ Styles. If Ricochet is not gonna win a title any time soon yet, then he should win this.

    Ali needs to win because Raw superstars always gets a big win over these tournaments. Raw superstars got more chances, so Ali should be the breakout star to shine. Plus, this will put Ali on notice on smackdown when he win

    Andrade needs to win because he's been a dominant heel over and over. He even beat Rey Mysterio with a 2 out of 3 falls. If WWE let Andrade beat a legend like Rey, then they better not ruin the chance for him to win the king of the ring. (As his destiny)

  88. Mustafa Ali vs Baron Corbin? I like the idea of Ali winning, but King in the Ring has always been better as a vehicle to promote a heel.

  89. Gable,Ricochet,Cedric,and Ali win
