WWE reportedly holding two Premium Live Events in May

WWE is reportedly going to hold two Premium Live Events this May.

According to a report from Brandon Thurston via the Wrestlenomics Patreon account, WWE is scheduled to hold WWE Backlash on Saturday, May 6 and then on Saturday May 27, they will hold King and Queen of the Ring. WWE has not held a King of the Ring pay-per-view since 2002.

The report also notes that WWE is dropping WrestleMania from the Backlash PLE.

In October 2021, WWE held the first-ever Queen’s Crown Tournament that began on SmackDown and continued to be held on future episodes of Raw and SmackDown. It concluded at Crown Jewel pay-per-view on October 21, 2021. SmackDown’s Zelina Vega defeated Raw’s Doudrop to become the first-ever winner of the tournament.

The memorial day weekend pay-per-view tradition for AEW will continue on Sunday, May 28 with Double or Nothing, which is expected to take place again from Las Vegas, Nevada.

During an appearance last month on an episode of The Dan Le Batard Show, Khan said AEW and WWE “truly hate each other.”  He also further said that WWE and AEW are in a “wrestling war.”

During last September’s All Out Media Scrum, when Khan was asked about WWE holding two premium live events during labor day weekend, he compared himself to Jim Crockett.

Khan said the following:

“When I compared myself to Jim Crockett Promotions this weekend, I think I got a taste of the same medicine Jim Crockett Promotions took, but I have a lot more f—ing money than Jim Crockett did. I’m serious. I’m not gonna sit back and take this f—-ing s–t.”
