When is King of the Ring? Did WWE skip it?

The last King of the Ring I remember is Sheamus is 2010 (correct me if I'm wrong). But, what about in 2011?

Actually it was to have him face HHH in a WM rematch but Vince mcmahon decided to go with HHH/Taker since WM 27 didnt have any big match.

I love your signature.

But, anyways. I'm pretty sure WWE didn't have a king of the ring. Unless someone can recall, I missed some episodes here and there, so I could have missed that one. So it pretty much means Jerry Lawler has no reason to carry his crown around anymore if WWE just 'forgets' the King of the Ring. I personally liked it.

JR replied to someone on Twitter a few months ago saying they stopped it due to low buy rate.

That applies to the KOTR PPV. The most recent KOTR tournaments have been on Smackdown and Raw. It is now a bi-yearly event, so look for the next one to take place this year.
