Good, just drop the King gimmick and give the winner a guaranteed world title shot.

As others have said, the only way the KoR works is if the winner(s) get title shots. It also needs to be all in one night (other than maybe some qualifying events on Raw/Smackdown). The most recent incarnations seemed small time by having actual tournament matches on RAW and/or SmackDown.

I'm confused, hasn't WWE owned this as a trademark for 30 years?

I'm sure they'll have half the bracket be Smackdown Superstars, and the other half Raw to determine who is the KOTR no matter what brand they belong too.

AJ Styles or Cesaro will win it.

They would just let Roman win it so who cares.

i think king of the ring would be excllent foractually letting the two brands face each other. since the brand split and duh make it a PPV only makes sense. Then the first one they have have raw vs smackdown vs nxt and have the best from each brand fill the roster and the winner takes the PPV for their brand only or have it once a year where you get the chance to fight the wrestlerson the other brand, they play it right this would be excellent for making wwe shine like it once did.im with you all onthe winner deserves a title shot, i always do that in mygames, cause only makes sense, or make it a championchip tournament the winner becomes the champion and throw the champion in their, honestly if they ever wanted one unified title, i think this be perfect. combine raw,smackdown,nxt titles but given nxt is developmental would be hard to take their title away but just some ideas

I'd like to see them go back to the way it was around 2000 - 2002. Have wrestlers compete in a tournament and then have the quaterfinals, semi-finals, and the finals at the King of the Ring PPV. My pick for King of the Ring would be AJ Styles. I just hope WWE don't give him a king gimmick, it would probably be as cringe worthy as the time TNA made him into Ric Flair 2.0 and had him coming out in robes and managed by Flair.

On a side note, i'm surprised WWE don't already have the name trademarked.

Favorite Wrestlers Of All Time - The Undertaker, The Rock, Chris Jericho and Edge

Current Favorite Wrestlers - AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe and Becky Lynch

KOTR

I have said for years that this tournament should grant the winner a WWE title shot at Summer Slam. May I also add that the winner should also receive an actual "Brass Ring". I also have said that this tournament along with The Royal Rumble should only be held in Europe where this "Wrestling Royalty" can keep it's true meaning. Obviously 8 men are chosen, but I think the WWE should select the "8" men through the course of the year. Make this a spectacle. Now that both shows are live you could easily get away with not spoiling who is selected.

We often find ourselves bitching about "random" matches. This is one way to help diminish that. We know only 8 men will be selected, but we don't know when, or by who. It should be known that anyone can be awarded an invitation to the King of the Ring tournament. What this means is that every match counts even though we know all of the matches can't have qualifiers. It's a hook that never dies because each year we know the rules and this all works. It's like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Everyone was awaiting their Golden ticket and that was the build to a large portion of the movie. The WWE could do same each year with this concept.


Why hold KOTR in Europe?

I think it makes because we have the WWE Network now. Make this it's own thing and I feel like having aired across the ocean as a non PPV type event, but more of a "Network Exclusive" gives it a breath of life that it has never had before. The crowds overseas are far better as well and they deserve the WWE live just as much as us Westerners. WWE sends it's best 8 over seas to prove that one of them is worth a WWE title shot at Summer Slam.
