WWE News: Controversial ending leads to new stipulation for King of the Ring semifinal next week
This week's RAW from Baltimore, Maryland had two quarterfinal matches in line for the WWE King of the Ring 2019 tournament.
Baron Corbin defeated Cedric Alexander to secure his position in the next round of the tournament while Samoa Joe and Ricochet were set to collide to determine Corbin's opponent in the semifinals.
Unfortunately, that match ended in no contest and it was up to the WWE management to settle the scores and decide the semifinalists from the RAW side.
It was then announced by the match official John Cone that both of them qualified to the next round and a Triple Threat match between Samoa Joe, Baron Corbin and Ricochet will be taking place to crown the finalist of the King of the Ring tournament.
