WWE officially announces King and Queen of the Ring for May 27 in Saudi Arabia

WWE officially confirmed their next premium live event planned for Saudi Arabia.

During Monday night’s episode of Raw, a commercial aired for WWE King and Queen of the Ring, set to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the Jeddah Superdome, on May 27.

The last King of the Ring tournament finals took place at the Crown Jewel premium live event in Saudi Arabia in October of 2021. At the event Xavier Woods would go on to win against Finn Balor to become the King of the Ring. At the same event, WWE also held the first ever Queen of the Ring tournament finals, with Zelina Vega defeating Doudrop (Piper Niven) to become the first Queen of the Ring.

King and Queen of the Ring is just one day prior to AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view that will be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 28.
