WWE King and Queen of the Ring 2024 Spoilers

Singles Match for the Women's World Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Liv Morgan

I know there are a ton of people out there begging for Liv Morgan to win this title. To be honest, I see a lot of their arguments (when they aren't just "I'm a stan for her.") But I don't think that's going to happen.

Morgan is still teetering on a heel turn. Unless that trigger is pulled before this, I think she's going to have to lose this to really push her over the edge.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch wins.

Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental Championship: Sami Zayn (c) vs. Bronson Reed vs. Chad Gable

Going with a Triple Threat match convinces me Zayn is going to retain here. It's just too easy to have Reed take a pinfall and then keep the Gable story going to stretch this out a little while longer. I can't imagine there being as much of a chance that Gable wins the title over Reed and that's how this continues, and I just don't think Reed's winning in any fashion.

Zayn against Gable in something like a two-out-of-three falls match or whatever at Clash at the Castle instead, or on Raw.

PREDICTION: Sami Zayn wins.

King of the Ring Tournament Finals: Gunther vs. Randy Orton

This tournament is very clearly revolving around Gunther. I'd be shocked if he wasn't in the finals, if not the most obvious winner. He's not only one of the best Superstars to bet on for win-loss record performance, but dropping the Intercontinental Championship means winning this gives him some purpose again to compensate for that.

He's easily the top pick, and until he's knocked out of the tournament, I'll be watching out for him.

Now that some of this has passed by, it seems like it'll be Gunther against Randy Orton. That's a fun final. I don't think it would have been what I would have chosen, as it kind of makes it obvious Orton isn't going to win (as he doesn't need it in any way at this point in his career), though. I would have rather seen these two just have a normal feud while Gunther fought someone else in the finals of the tournament who couldn't have as much of a storyline.

Still, I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Update: The winner getting a title shot at SummerSlam for their brand's championship now has me second-guessing this, wondering if Orton will fight Rhodes at that show. It's more of a possibility now than I had thought.

PREDICTION: Gunther wins.

Queen of the Ring Tournament Finals: Lyra Valkyria vs. Nia Jax

Well, all my picks for this keep getting eliminated. We're down to Valkyria against either Bianca Belair or Nia Jax. Between the two on SmackDown, I would think Jax is going to beat Belair in order to set her up against Valkyria, rather than for the finals to be two babyfaces, especially where Bianca would very clearly be cheered over Lyra.

So I guess that means Nia Jax wins? I didn't think that was going to be the case whatsoever.

Update: The winner getting a title shot at SummerSlam for their brand's championship now has me second-guessing this, too. Nia fighting Bayley at SummerSlam sounds weird to broadcast several months in advance. Lyra fighting anyone at SummerSlam sounds weird, too, as she's just not that big of a deal. But maybe they REALLY believe in her and they think that she'll be able to be built up enough in the next 2 months to make her a star. I don't know. This seems weird that they didn't just say they'll get opportunities at Clash at the Castle or at least Money in the Bank first.

PREDICTION: Nia Jax wins.

Singles Match for the Undisputed WWE Championship: Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Logan Paul

Update: This isn't for both belts. It's just for the WWE Championship. That means it loses some of its interest, but it's at least clarified ahead of time. Cody definitely wins and it's just as simple as that.

So...is this for both belts? Are neither of them on the line? Is it just one of them? And if so, which one?

Strangely, WWE hasn't been transparent about this. Their promo on SmackDown would suggest both belts are up for grabs, since Cody mentioned winning the United States Championship would make him a Grand Slam Champion, and Nick Aldis had introduced Logan Paul as Cody's next challenger. But all the wording on the promotional material since then has been vague, as if they don't want to fully commit to it.

The title defense situation changes this dynamic considerably. I'd assume under most scenarios that Rhodes would be victorious. At the very least, if his belt is on the line, he's not going to lose it to Paul. That means either he retains, he wins a no-title match (like what they used to do at Survivor Series), or he captures the US title. I can't imagine Paul pins Rhodes under any circumstances other than Rhodes doesn't have his title on the line and there's interference to set up his Clash at the Castle challenger.

But I could certainly see a scenario where The Bloodline interferes and causes this to be a no-contest or a disqualification, so no titles change hands. It'd be a lame way to do it, but I don't know why they're booking this match to happen now in the first place. It felt like a more obvious solution (in my mind, at least) would've been for Paul to drop the United States title and fight Cody at a later event like SummerSlam.

PREDICTION: Cody Rhodes wins.
