5 WWE women who could have won the Queen of the Ring tournament

The coronavirus pandemic has derailed a multitude of WWE’s plans for 2020, with another exciting idea reportedly being scrapped. As revealed by Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live, WWE was planning on a Queen of the Ring tournament this summer before the pandemic forced them to cancel it.

It would have presumably featured the women of RAW and SmackDown, following the elimination format of the King of the Ring concept. And like the storied multi-man tournament did so last September, an all-female tournament would have freshened up some of the driest months of the WWE calendar.

Regardless of what goes down at Sunday’s Backlash pay-per-view, the WWE landscape is about to change one way or another as we enter the summer season, especially if this past week was any indication of what the immediate future holds.

The most talked-about development among fans involved Bruce Prichard taking over for Paul Heyman as the lead creative force for both Raw and SmackDown, per WWE. The brands have undergone several creative overhauls in the past year or so, but it’s become clear that the status quo will remain the same so long as CEO Vince McMahon is still calling the shots.

Asuka was out first on Monday night, but before we got to see any more dance skills, she was interrupted by new women’s tag champs Bayley and Sasha Banks. Charlotte then came out to join the party, as she and Asuka were supposed to face off again on Monday. After the IIconics also came out to interrupt, feeding into WWE’s favorite pastime of throwing every relevant woman into the ring at the same time, we got a triple threat match: Bayley and Sasha vs the IIconics vs Charlotte and Asuka.
