As noted, this week’s SmackDown saw the King of the Ring tournament continue as Andrade defeated Apollo Crews to advance and WWE 24/7 Champion Elias defeated Kevin Owens to advance.
Below is post-show video of Cathy Kelley interviewing Andrade and Zelina Vega. Cathy said it seems like Andrade will do anything and everything to win the tournament, and that’s when Vega interrupted.
“Excuse you, are you implying something? Are you implying that Andrade did not win that on his own? Because that’s what I saw. He was the winner, the ref held his hands. I’m telling you right now that Andrade is going to be the new King of the Ring, hands down. I’m just getting ready for the future, this is what’s going to happen. I have a crown, you don’t see anybody else walking around with crowns here. Andrade is going to be the King,” Vega said.
Andrade added, “I don’t have a plan. This is my destiny. I will be the new King of the Ring.”
