King of the Ring 1986

Wins Sport Event

The second King of the Ring tournament is held. Harley Race overcomes Roddy Piper, Don Muraco, Paul Orndoff and Pedro Morales to claim the crown. Race comments.

 In the tournament itself, I had to advance four times. Getting by Morales at the end was something special. He had been World Wrestling Federation Champion. He was the guy who I really wanted to face to make the King of the Ring mean something. I think overall, it did real well.

King of the Ring

Wins Sport Event

The inaugural King of the Ring tournament is held. Tito Santana, The Iron Sheik, Ricky Steamboat, Don Muraco and Paul Orndoff try to capture the crown. Muraco defeated Iron Sheik in the final round to claim the crown. Muraco comments.

It’s always an honor to be the first. The tournament that year was at the Patriots’ old stadium outdoors, so it was a big show and very cool.
