— In the latest “Bring it Back” series on WWE.com, where they have asked for the returns of the Evolution stable and the Hardcore Championship among things, they now have an article up insisting the return of the King of the Ring pay-per-view and tournament.
“Although the King of the Ring tournament has been contested several times since 2002 on both Raw and SmackDown, making it the focus of a high-profile pay-per-view gave it a divine energy,” the article says. “By winning this contest of extreme intestinal fortitude at such a large scale event, a Superstar instantly set himself apart from the pack. Although, it did not give the winner a championship title straightaway, it laid the ground work for greatness, propelling him to a level of competition where the WWE Title would surely be decided.”
— Matches confirmed for tonight’s WWE SmackDown! broadcast on SyFy include Zack Ryder vs. Cody Rhodes, Big Show vs. Mark Henry, Kofi Kingston vs. Primo, and Daniel Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler.
