Posted on 5/07/124 by Colin Vassallo



Both Drew McIntyre and Asuka were pulled from the King and
Queen of the Ring tournaments due to respective injuries.

McIntyre, who was on Raw, was informed by Raw GM Adam Pearce
that he was pulled out of the show due to his hyper-extended
elbow injury. He was set to face Finn Balor, but Jey Uso
replaced him.

Asuka was also taken out of the tournament and was replaced
by fellow Damage CTRL member Dakota Kai. Kai went on to
wrestle former NXT Women’s champion Lyra Valkyria in the
tournament.

The Empress of Tomorrow last wrestled at Backlash this past
weekend, losing the WWE Women’s Tag Team titles with Kairi
Sane to Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill.
