WWE King and Queen of the Ring Preview

Below is the match graphic and WWE.com preview for each match at Backlash France:

At WWE King and Queen of the Ring, Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes will go war against United States Champion Logan Paul in a Champion vs. Champion Match.

After heroically finishing his story by conquering Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, Rhodes immediately solidified his reign with a hard-fought title win over AJ Styles at Backlash France. Upon his return to SmackDown, he didn’t have to wait long to see who he would tangle with next, as SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis informed The American Nightmare that he will square off against Paul in Saudi Arabia.

Rhodes stands at the top of the mountain, the standard-bearer to a whole new era of WWE. The Social Media Sensation, however, has claimed that he is the reason for WWE’s recent success and that it has nothing to do with Rhodes. Now, titleholder will battle titleholder to see which one of those things is true.

The Man is coming around to collide with the Liv Morgan Revenge Tour! Women’s World Champion Becky Lynch will put her title on the line against
her unhinged challenger at WWE King and Queen of the Ring.

After an injured Rhea Ripley was forced to relinquish her gold due to an injury sustained at the hands of Morgan, Lynch emerged victorious in a Battle Royal to be crowned the new Women’s World Champion. Morgan, who was the final Superstar eliminated by Lynch in the Battle Royal, confronted The Man and suggested that the titleholder owed her an opportunity. Following Liv’s subsequent victory over Nia Jax, it was only a matter of time before that match was made.

Will Morgan’s Revenge Tour end with the gold around her waist? Or will Lynch reign supreme against her newfound rival? Find out at WWE King and Queen of the Ring, Saturday, May 25, at 1 ET/10 a.m. PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.

Sami Zayn will put the Intercontinental Title on the line in a Triple Threat Match against Chad Gable and “Big” Bronson Reed at WWE King and Queen of the Ring.

After Zayn overcame Gable in the final part of a Gauntlet Match to earn the right to challenge Gunther at WrestleMania, Master Gable trained the determined challenger to help him end the longest Intercontinental Title reign in WWE history. In return, Zayn offered Gable a title opportunity. When Sami emerged victorious in Montreal, however, Gable snapped and unleashed a vicious assault on the titleholder.

With animosity increasing between Zayn and Gable, Reed attacked Zayn to set his own claim to the Intercontinental Title. In a subsequent title match between Reed and Zayn, Gable attacked the titleholder. Although Bronson joined the assault, he then took out Gable for getting in the way of his opportunity. When Gable and Reed squared off the following week, Sami attacked them both and sparked another brawl. As a result, all three will battle for the championship.

Lyra Valkyria soars into battle against The Irresistible Force when she takes on Nia Jax in the final match of the Queen of the Ring Tournament.

Valkyria’s daunting road to the finals including explosive battles against Dakota Kai, Zoey Stark and former WWE Women’s Champion IYO SKY.

The ruthless Jax’s journey of destiny saw her lock horns with Naomi, before opposing the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions in back-to-back matches, Jade Cargill in the quarterfinals and Bianca Belair in the semifinals.

Find out who will emerge as Queen and earn a World Title opportunity at SummerSlam when WWE King and Queen of the Ring comes to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, streaming live this Saturday at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.

The Viper is poised to launch a serpentine strike at the heart of the dominant Ring General when Randy Orton goes head-to-head with Gunther in the King of the Ring Tournament Final.

Gunther’s journey to the crown saw him battle Sheamus, Kofi Kingston and “Main Event” Jey Uso. Orton’s path included explosive showdowns against AJ Styles, Carmelo Hayes and Tama Tonga of The Bloodline.

Will the 14-time World Champion or the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in history walk out of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the crown and a World Title opportunity at SummerSlam? Find out at WWE King and Queen of the Ring, streaming live this Saturday at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill will take on Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell as part of Countdown to WWE King and Queen of the Ring.

Bianca and Jade have quickly established themselves as a force of dominance, but the nefarious tactics of LeRae and Hartwell make them an extremely unpredictable tandem.

Don’t miss Countdown to WWE King and Queen of the Ring, streaming live on Saturday, May 25, at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.
