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 the second semi-final, Bad News Barrett hit the Bull Hammer elbow on his opponent R-Truth to reach the final.
