As a longtime wrestling fan I will be sharing my thoughts on the current WWE shows on live tv and PPV. Its an exciting week in WWE because the King Of The Ring Tournament is returning tomorrow night! Many wrestlers have made a name for themselves by winning the King Of the Ring. The King Of The Ring started in 1985. Don Muraco was the first to be crowned and the last to be crowned was “Bad News” Barrett in 2015.

My Pick 2019 King Of The Ring: Drew McIntyre
With the King Of The Ring returning and being more of an old school fan both Raw and Smackdown should be a must see this week!
This Past week on Raw Drew McIntyre vs Cedric Alexander was the best match of the night. Both had a great flow in the ring. The match went back and forth which mad it exciting from the start. Drew McIntyre gave a hard Claymore Kick to Alexander winning the match. Going into King Of The Ring and being in WWE a long time he has an edge to be crowned.
Seth Rollins vs AJ Styles was the next best match on Raw. Nothing much to say except that’s why they are in the main event for most shows. If you have not seen these two wrestle it’s a must for new and old wrestling fans.

If you have not heard of the name Buddy Murphy now you have! He made his In-Ring debut on Smackdown this past Tuesday facing “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns. The match was not only the best of Smackdown but also the best out of both shows! Roman Reigns would win this match with a hard hitting spear. Buddy Murphy has some amazing in ring skills and really impressed the crowd in the arena. Toronto definitely saw both Reigns and Murphy at their top level. This match is a must see for every wrestling fan!
The New Day vs The Revival & “The Viper” Randy Orton was another great match with a classic ending Orton style. Both teams worked well together in the ring and it is good to see tag teams relevant again. Hopefully this is makes Survivor Series a watch. I do not want to spoil this match. The Orton vs Kofi storyline is not over yet. Orton is a once again a crowd pleaser returning to a heel !
