WWE has announced the following wrestlers for the 16-man King of the Ring tournament that will begin on Monday’s Raw television show.
Powell’s POV: I enjoy a good pro wrestling tournament and with the names involved this has a chance to be just that. My fear remains that the winner will be saddled with a one dimensional King gimmick like Sheamus and Wade Barrett had after winning previous KOTR tournaments. Hopefully the company has a plan in place to make someone in a big way.
