All hail King Barrett!

Bad News Barrett from Preston won the King Of The Ring tournament last night, beating fellow Englishman Neville in the final.

The popular knock-out tournament returned for the first time after a five-year absence.

The semi-finals and finals of the tournament were shown on the WWE network, and featured the foursome of Sheamus, Neville, R-Truth and Bad News Barrett, after they won their preliminary matches the previous night on Raw.

In those preliminary matches, Bad New Barrett beat Dolph Ziggler, R-Truth defeated Stardust, Sheamus won against Dean Ambrose and Neville got the better of Luke Harper.

The show opened with the semi-final between Sheamus and Neville. Neville, from Newcastle, advanced to the final after connecting with his spectacular Red Arrow finishing move. Dolph Ziggler had come out and distracted Sheamus by playing video footage of him winning at Extreme Rules.
