Wrestling host and personality Denise Salcedo recently compiled and posted a list with the total match times for the tournament on Twitter. The numbers are shockingly bleak.
“UPDATED: Queen’s Crown Tournament Times:
Smackdown: Zelina Vega/ Toni Storm (2:13)
Carmella/ Liv Morgan (1:33)
Raw: Shayna/Dana Brooke (1:22)
Nattie/ Doudrop (2:59)
SD Semi Finals Carmella/Zelina (2:41)
RAW Semi Finals doudrop/shayna (2:46)
Don’t shoot the messenger.”
The entire tournament has been less than fourteen minutes. No match has gone over three minutes. It’s nearly impossible to fathom how they could be so tone-deaf when booking a women’s wrestling tournament.
The tournament final takes place on Thursday, October 21 at Crown Jewel from Saudi Arabia. The unexpected final of Zelina Vega facing Doudrop will determine the first ever winner of the crown.
The men’s King of the Ring tournament finals will also take place in Saudi Arabia. Finn Balor will face Xavier Woods for the right to be called king. Xavier has AEW star Adam Cole pulling for him in the bout. The show will air on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network internationally.
