From 1993-2002, WWE held the King of the Ring pay-per-view every June, an event that featured a scintillating single-elimination tournament. To this day, the event evokes many memories.
Bret Hart, Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar were all able to win the crown along with seven other men, some of whom launched their career to the next level by surviving the tournament.
There were several great tournament matches at these events and WWE made things even more unique by having a qualifying round just to get in. As the brackets were paired down, it would come down to two men who had usually competed several times in one night.
Here, we will rank the final match from the tournament from each year, taking into consideration things like the qualify of the match and what it meant to the man who would be known as the king for the next year.
Though WWE had other King of the Ring tournaments prior to 1993, we will only focus on those that were held on pay-per-view itself.
