Doudrop On Short WWE Queen's Crown Tournament Matches: They Were Just Little Tastes

WWE held its first-ever Queen's Crown Tournament this year with Zelina Vega being crowned the queen of WWE by defeating Doudrop in the finals at WWE Crown Jewel.

While many fans were excited that the tournament was happening, the short matches left a bad taste in the mouths of many. The total time for the first six matches before the finals lasted 13:34. The final bout between Doudrop and Vega went 5:50, making it the longest match in the tournament.

Speaking to Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport, Doudrop commented on the short match times.

“I think the tournament in general went really, really well considering it’s the first time it’s happened. I thought it went really spectacular. As far as time limits and stuff, I was not thankful that (the final match) wasn’t particularly long, but I was wrestling in 90 degree heat. I can only do that for a very limited amount of time, so there was a part of me that was like, ‘Okay, this is fine. I can manage this.’ If it went a bit longer, I don’t think there would have been much makeup or anything left of me because it was god damn hot out there," she said. “But obviously, the qualifiers and that, you know, maybe they could have been longer. But I like to think that they were just little tastes. Because a lot of these matches were matches that hadn’t happened before, so you don’t want to give everything away right now. Maybe we see where these go in the future, but for now, we’ve given them a little taste of what these matches are right now so let’s see what we can do next time and make people want to see that match.”

Doudrop and Vega would have a rematch of the Queen's Crown Finals on the subsequent episode of WWE Raw. The match lasted 2:30.
