QD – I had been hoping for the King Of The Ring to return for a while now, but as an actual tournament leading up to a KoTR PPV, not the fluffy lack of excitement I worry this might be.  The past couple times they have run the KoTR tourney they have made it look less like the respected event it once was and more like a dog and pony show run by children.  I’m hoping for the best and keeping my fingers crossed that not only will someone less established and really deserving wins this and that they run with it all the way to the top the way Austin did.

I want to mention that it’s more than time they gave us Queen of The Ring.  Even if Charlotte will win the first one as she continues to try to usurp me as THE Queen in the wrestling world.
