A couple of semifinal matches are now set in the 2021 WWE King of the Ring and Queen's Crown tournaments.
Following first round matches on this past week's edition of Friday Night SmackDown and again on tonight's installment of Monday Night Raw, the matches for the next round are now locked in.
On SmackDown, we saw Finn Balor and Sami Zayn advance to face each other in the semifinals of the KOTR tourney, while Carmella and Zelina Vega advanced in the SmackDown side of the Queen's Crown tourney.
On Raw this week, we witnessed Xavier Woods defeat Ricochet to advance to the semifinals where he will meet Jinder Mahal, who defeated Kofi Kingston to advance. The winners of the Woods/Mahal and Balor/Zayn matches will meet in the KOTR finals at WWE Crown Jewel 2021.
For the Queen's Crown tourney on Raw, we see Doudrop defeat Natalya and Shayna Baszler beat Dana Brooke. With their respective wins, Doudrop and Baszler will now meet in the semifinals. The winner of that match will square off against the winner of the Vega/Carmella semifinal bout in the finals of the tourney, which will also go down at Crown Jewel.
