Baron Corbin is going to the finals of King of the Ring.

In the semifinals of the tournament, Corbin defeated Samoa Joe and Ricochet in a triple threat match on tonight's Raw at Madison Square Garden. Ricochet hit a 630 on Joe at the end of the match, but the finish was Corbin pinning Joe after pulling Ricochet out of the ring and throwing him over the barricade.

Raw's semifinal for King of the Ring became a triple threat after Joe and Ricochet's quarterfinal match ended in a double pin.

Corbin defeated The Miz in the first round of the tournament and Cedric Alexander in the quarterfinals.

Elias vs. Chad Gable is SmackDown's semifinal match. It's taking place at Madison Square Garden tomorrow, with the winner advancing to face Corbin in the finals at Clash of Champions. The Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina is hosting the pay-per-view this Sunday.

Elias defeated Kevin Owens and Ali in his first two King of the Ring matches, while Gable defeated Shelton Benjamin and Andrade.
