King of the Ring (1999) was the seventh annual King of the Ring professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). It was presented by Super Soaker and took place on June 27, 1999, at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. The main show included ten matches in total with several matches preceding the Pay Per View (PPV) portion of the show, broadcast on live television as part of the WWF's Sunday Night Heat show. The main event was a Ladder match featuring Shane McMahon and Vince McMahon defeating Stone Cold Steve Austin for the control of the WWF. The other main match was a WWF Championship match where The Undertaker defeated The Rock to retain the title. Additional featured matches on the undercard included the KOTR tournament final between Billy Gunn and X-Pac, which Billy Gunn won to win the overall tournament and a Tag team match between The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff) defeating The Brood (Edge and Christian).



The event featured a total of 15 professional wrestling matches, one untelevised match, four shown during Sunday Night Heat and the remaining 10 matches broadcast live on Pay-Per-View (PPV). Some of the matches featured wrestlers who were involved in pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines and others are teamed up with no backstory. Wrestlers themselves portrayed either heels (wrestling term for those who portray the "bad guys") or faces (those who portray the "good guys") as they competed in matches with pre-determined outcomes.

The 1999 event was the thirteenth time the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) held a King of the Ring tournament and the seventh time they held the tournament on a PPV .Triple H was originally supposed to compete in the King of the Ring tournament, but he wanted to compete for the WWF title instead, so he gave his spot to Chyna.
