With Baron Corbin winning the King of the Ring tournament, a celebration for his coronation is set for SmackDown Live.
WWE announced that Corbin will have his coronation as King of the Ring on the September 17 edition of SmackDown Live, concluding a tournament run that began several weeks ago with wins against the likes of Samoa Joe and Ricochet en route to the finals. In the tournament finals on the September 16 edition of Raw, Corbin defeated Chad Gable.
All hail King Corbin!
Baron Corbin remained confident throughout the King of the Ring tournament, foreshadowing his eventual reign by donning the crown after winning each of his matchups. On SmackDown LIVE, it becomes official, as the coronation of Baron Corbin takes place following his defeat of the underdog challenger Chad Gable.
Will Corbin begin his rule with a modest celebration, or will The Lone Wolf deliver the pomp and circumstance fit for true royalty?
Also on the show is Shane McMahon addressing the firing of Kevin Owens at the conclusion of the September 10 episode of SmackDown Live.
Fightful will have live coverage of SmackDown Live with a post-show podcast set for after SmackDown goes off the air.
