A king and queen of WWE were crowned at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

Xavier Woods became King of the Ring by defeating Finn Balor in the tournament finals. In the Queen's Crown tournament finals, Zelina Vega defeated Doudrop.

"All hail King Xavier" and "All hail Queen Zelina" were announced after their respective wins.

Woods has called winning King of the Ring a lifelong dream of his. Before Crown Jewel, Woods tweeted that today's match was the most important of his life: "My entire career I’ve been told to tone it down, don’t be my FULL self. I’m too ridiculous, I don’t fit in. Just be like everyone else. Don’t think outside the box. Tonight, I have a chance to show all of those people they were wrong. This is the most important match of my life"

Woods defeated Ricochet in the first round and Jinder Mahal in the semifinals of the King of the Ring tournament, while Vega defeated Toni Storm and Carmella to get to the Queen's Crown finals.

Woods is WWE's first King of the Ring since Baron Corbin won the tournament in 2019. Vega is the inaugural Queen's Crown winner.
