WWE superstar Baron Corbin was crowned as the King of the Ring 2019 after he beat Chad Gable on Monday night RAW, a day after Clash of Champions pay-per-view. Baron Corbin had the three best fights of his WWE career en route to the King of the Ring finals and went on to beat underdog Chad Gable to become the new King of the Ring. Baron Corbin beat the likes of Cedric Alexander, The Miz, Samoa Joe and Richochet to reach the finals of the tournament. With eyes on the crown ever since the beginning of the tournament, Baron Corbin will now be crowned as the new King of the Ring on Tuesday night SmackDown live.
Baron Corbin has been considered a favourite within the industry for a long time now and has proved his worth by ending WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle's run as RAW's General Manager and beat him in Wrestlemania 35. Baron Corbin took on Chad Gable in a physically exhausting match as both the superstars pulled all the tricks in their bag to grab a victory. Both Gable and Corbin went at each other from when the bell rang, displaying extreme athletism, speed and high flying abilities. The action also shifted outside the ring, as Gable was sent into the barricades on multiple occasions by Corbin following which Corbin was driven into the steel steps shoulder first by Gable. Even an ankle lock from Gable could not get Corbin to tap out as the Lone Wolf hit Gable with an End of Days to be crowned the new King of the Ring.
Booker T has been in the industry for three decades. Prior to his career in WWF/E, he was a five-time WCW Champion where he overcame the likes of Goldberg and Sting. However, he got two opportunities for the World Heavyweight Championship but was unsuccessful. He also got a WWE Championship title shot but could not find success there as well. But, he had managed to win the World Tag Team Championship along with Rob Van Dam and also enjoyed a good run as the United States Champion. Nonetheless, a man of his caliber deserved much more than this and his patience was rewarded in 2006 when he beat the hard-hitting Bobby Lashley in the final at Judgement Day. Booker added yet another feather in his cap when he defeated Rey Mysterio a couple of months later at the Great American Bash for the World Heavyweight Championship as he came to be known as the 'King of the World'.
