Tomorrow night on WWE Raw there will be a triple threat Semi-Final match in the WWE King Of The Ring tournament, and the reason for that has been revealed.
Ricochet will take on Samoa Joe and Baron Corbin with the three men battling to earn a spot in the WWE Clash Of Champions final against either Elias or Chad Gable.
According to Dave Meltzer, or the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the reason for the decision of making the match a triple threat is to make Ricochet look like a star inside Madison Square Gardens.
“They’re doing a three-way which actually makes no sense, but the idea there is to actually showcase Ricochet which is not saying that he’s necessarily winning. He might be, but the idea is that in the match at The Garden, Ricochet’s going to be there as a babyface against two heels and two big heels and he’s not a big guy so they dynamic is supposed to work for him — I mean the match is for him.”
