The WWE is in the midst of filming the first Mae Young Classic at the NXT arena in Winter Park, Florida, but the tournament won’t premiere on the WWE Network until August 28th – which gives fans plenty of time to get to know the women competing in the event!
WWE has put together a short introduction video featuring all 32 entrants stating their names and where they’re from. It’s nice to get a little more info on the women as many of them are relative unknowns – even among fans familiar with the independent circuit.
Watch the video below:
WWE first introduced the competitors in a Parade of Champions earlier this month:
I for one can’t get over how different Serena Deeb looks. Remember when she was following around CM Punk in the Straight Edge Society like a bald Mary Magdalene?
Pro Wrestling Sheet also has a nice little write-up of each of the competitors that you can check out here. Early favorites to win the tournament include Japanese sensation Kairi Sane, Australian wrestler Toni Storm, and indie darling Candice LeRae.
Bring on August 28th!
