There has unfortunately been an unexpected setback in what has otherwise so far been a tremendous King of the Ring tournament. WWE has officially announced that Elias will be unable to compete in tonight’s semifinal round match, and has been removed from the tournament.
According to PWInsider.com, the issue is with Elias’ ankle, and the decision was made earlier today to keep him out of the ring. He was advertised to face Chad Gable with the winner advancing to the King of the Ring finals at WWE Clash of Champions, to face Baron Corbin. No word yet on how they will navigate this situation, but we’ll keep you posted.
