WWE Queen’s Crown tournament has been a joke

Last updated

The WWE Queen’s Crown tournament has unfortunately been a complete joke, and we’ve only got the final left set to take place in Saudi Arabia.

Denise Salcedo recently tweeted the match times from the tournament itself heading to the final between Doudrop and Zelina Vega, and they are just baffling:

Round 1 – SmackDown

  • Zelina Vega vs Toni Storm – Lasted 2:13
  • Carmella vs Liv Morgan – Lasted 1:33

Round 1 – RAW

  • Shayna Baszler vs Dana Brooke – Lasted 1:22
  • Natalya vs Doudrop – Lasted 2:59

Semi-Finals – SmackDown

  • Carmella vs Zelina Vega – Lasted 2:41

Semi-Finals – RAW

  • Doudrop vs Shayna Baszler – Lasted 2:46

Nearly an entire tournament, that is meant to be on the level of the King of The Ring, has officially lasted bell to bell less than 20 minutes.

How does this help elevate anyone in the Women’s division? This absolutely reeks of the #GiveDivasAChance movement from all of those years ago, but how can we really expect the winner of the tournament to go on and have a REAL chance against Becky Lynch or Charlotte?

Absolutely baffling.
