Long Live the King

A quick post on this Monday.  WWE announced during Extreme Rules that the King of the Ring tournament is returning for the first time in nearly five years.  Sheamus won the title of "king" in November 2010 beating John Morrison in the finals.

The 2015 tournament kicks off on Raw and wraps up on the WWE Network the next night.  Personally, I'm excited about this without even knowing who is in the tournament.  My hope is that some of the guys who are looking to break through that so-called main event glass ceiling will be a part of this event.  In my 1-2-3 cents though, not everyone is suited to be "king."  For example, Bray Wyatt is an outstanding competitor and one of my current favorites, but his personality and gimmick don't fit the mold.  

I think a heel is better suited for the royalty, especially if they're going to use it like they did with winners including Owen Hart, Mabel and Booker T.  Others have won the tournament but didn't carry on the regal tradition like Edge, Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Stay tuned, the next installment of 3 Count on the My 1-2-3 Cents YouTube channel will feature my three favorite kings of the ring.  That episode drops Tuesday.  Thanks for reading, listen and watching My 1-2-3 Cents.
