Semifinal matches set for WWE King of the Ring tournament


Both semifinal matches are now set for WWE's King of the Ring tournament.

Elias will take on Chad Gable in a semifinal match on next Tuesday's SmackDown. Baron Corbin vs. Ricochet vs. Samoa Joe is the semifinal on the Raw side of the bracket and will take place next Monday.

Elias defeated Ali on tonight's SmackDown to advance to the semifinals. Gable then advanced by defeating Andrade.

Corbin defeated Cedric Alexander in their quarterfinal match on last night's Raw. Ricochet vs. Joe ended in a double pin, with it later being announced that both Ricochet and Joe are advancing to the semifinals and will face Corbin in a triple threat match.

Joe also appeared on tonight's SmackDown. Before Gable's match against Andrade, Joe insulted Gable and called him mentally weak.

Next week's Raw and SmackDown are both taking place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The King of the Ring finals will be held at Clash of Champions. The Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina is hosting the pay-per-view on September 15.
