First round matches for the King and Queen of the Ring

more importance and added some heavy hitters in the
qualifying matches.

In the men’s tournament, opening matches will include Drew
McIntyre vs Finn Balor, Kofi Kingston vs Rey Mysterio,
Ricochet vs Ilja Dragunov, and Gunther vs Sheamus.

The women’s tournament opening matches will have Zoey Stark
vs Ivy Nile, Shayna Baszler vs Zelina Vega, Lyra Valkyria vs
Asuka, and Iyo Sky vs Natalya.

The Smackdown matches are expected to be announced on Raw.

The finals of both tournaments will take place in Jeddah,
Saudi Arabia on May 25.
