A few weeks ago WWE announced the return of King of the Ring, and the company also announced the first ever Queen’s Crown tournament. The tournaments played out on WWE programming over the last few weeks, and the finals took place at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia where Zelina Vega defeated Doudrop to win the Queen’s Crown. Vega recently talked to Sports Illustrated about her big win and she revealed exactly what Vince McMahon said to her after the match.
“Vince walked up to me after the match in the back and said, ‘You walked in here queen, and now it’s official. I almost lost it.”
Vega also noted that she had faced off against Dourdrop during the Worlds Collide event back in 2019, and that she couldn’t wait to wrestle her once again.
“I was looking forward to this match the second I learned it was going to be against her. She is amazing, and she loves this so much. We had a match in 2019 at an NXT Worlds Collide show. That was our first time ever touching, and I thought it was hard-hitting and entertaining. I couldn’t wait to wrestle her again, and it’s amazing that I got to do it in Saudi Arabia in the finals of the Queen’s Crown tournament. This was a first-time-ever tournament, and we wanted to make history. To me, that’s incredibly special.”
