WWE had to cancel some big plans for 2020 and that included a tournament that some fans have been asking for.

Charlotte Flair touts herself as The Queen. She would have likely been given the opportunity to prove it this summer if COVID-19 didn’t wreck the start of everyone’s decade.

Bryan Alvarez mentioned during Wrestling Observer Live that WWE nixed plans for a Queen Of The Ring tournament because of COVID-19.

“A couple of days ago we were talking about the Mae Young Classic and coronavirus and everything like that. I believe that the actual idea for this year was a Queen Of The Ring Tournament, so not a Mae Young Classic, but a Queen Of The Ring Tournament. That is now off due to coronavirus. Had there not been a global pandemic I believe what you would have seen this Summer is the Queen Of The Ring Tournament.”


It wasn’t noted if this planned Queen Of The Ring tournament would be open to all main roster Superstars, or if they would invite women in from outside the company. Discussing it is a moot point now because the tournament isn’t happening.

WWE can always keep the Queen Of The Ring tournament in their back pocket and pull out the idea at a later time. Just add the QOTR tournament to all of the other things that the novel coronavirus ruined this year.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
