Report: WWE Considering The Idea Of A 'Queen Of The Ring' Tournament

WWE could be looking to revive a classic pay-per-view concept with a twist.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that WWE is discussing the idea of a 2019 Queen of the Ring tournament featuring female superstars on the main roster. Meltzer reports that, at this point, it's "just an idea" as they are looking for ideas for a second all-women's pay-per-view.

As of now, a second all-women's pay-per-view has not been officially announced or scheduled. WWE Evolution, the first-ever all-women's pay-per-view, took place on Oct. 28. WWE has run the Mae Young Classic in the past two years, but the MYC features women from the Independent scene and superstars signed to compete for NXT and not main roster superstars.

WWE used to hold an annual King of the Ring tournament featuring male superstars. The tournament was turned into a pay-per-view that ran from 1993 to 2002. They have brought back the tournament four times since it ceased as an annual event, but it has not been used since 2015. King of the Ring winners include Steve Austin, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Bret Hart, Edge, and Brock Lesnar.
