– WWE released a video where Triple H discusses the importance of winning the King of the Ring Tournament. You can check out that video below. Triple H won the tournament in 1997 after beating Mankind (Mick Foley) in the finals. Triple H stated the following on the match:

“King of the Ring is one of those moments in time that if you have it, it can be complete career changing moment. Winning King of the Ring can put you on a trajectory in your career to be a top player in the WWE for years to come. And you don’t have to look any further than the list of people that have won that have gone on to do just that. It was a launch pad for Stone Cold Steve Austin. It was a launch pad for me, for Bret Hart, for a lot of talent that it just took them to a whole other level, what it means to be a performer and a star here in WWE.”

The CBC published an article on WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair meeting a young fan during Summerslam weekend in Toronto.
