Although the King of the Ring tournament was first made into a pay-per-view event in 2007, the original King of the Ring tournament was actually held in 2006. was the first King of the Ring in 2006.

Pay-per-view

The King of the Ring was an event in which typically sixteen wrestlers wrestled in a one-on-one single elimination bracket. When a wrestler wins a match in the bracket, they advance to take on another wrestler that has also won. The final few matches would then take place at that year's King of the Ring event. The winner of the final match is officially crowned the King of the Ring. There were also other matches that took place at the King of the Ring event since it was a traditional three hour pay-per-view.

While some believe that the new King of the Ring traditionally receives a CCW Championship shot at the One Night Stand pay-per-view, this only became an established rule in 2006. More important than an actual title shot was the prestige of winning the tournament itself; some wrestlers, usually heel wrestlers, have made being king an integral part of their gimmick, and, in general, the winner of the King of the Ring is a wrestler whom management has picked to advance in the storylines and be the next breakout star. A number of wrestlers have had huge successes after winning the tournament, while some wrestlers have admittedly been "flops" as king, and continued to be treated as lower card wrestlers after winning the tournament.
