WWE announced that the Mae Young Classic 2018 women’s tournament will be held on August 8-9 in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. Tickets for the event will be available on Friday morning beginning at 10ET.
“We are thrilled to once again present the Mae Young Classic and provide a global showcase for 32 of the top female talent from around the world,” Paul “Triple H” Levesque stated in a press release. “Last year’s event was a significant milestone in WWE’s Women’s Evolution, and I am confident this year’s event will break even more barriers.” Read more at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: The tournament will once again feature 32 women and will be single elimination. None of the participants have been announced yet, nor have they stated when the tournament will air on WWE Network. The 2017 tournament was a lot of fun and hopefully the sequel can top the original.
