The semi-final matches for the 2019 King of the Ring tournament were set following yesterday’s Smackdown show.
Over at Raw, Baron Corbin went over Cedric Alexander while Samoa Joe and Ricochet pinned each other. Rather than restarting the match, they decided to do a first and have Corbin vs Joe vs Ricochet in a triple threat match as the semi-final.
Meanwhile on Smackdown, Elias defeated Ali and Chad Gable defeated Andrade in the surprise of the night. Elias and Ali will now go head-to-head next week.
Both matches will take place at Madison Square Garden on the September 9 Raw and September 10 Smackdown ahead of the KOTR final match at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view later in the week.
