WWE announced that the Mae Young Classic 2018 will premiere Wednesday, September 5 on WWE Network. The show will air after NXT each week leading up to the finals at the WWE Evolution pay-per-view on October 28. WWE also announced that the MYC broadcast team will feature Michael Cole, Beth Phoenix, and Renee Young. Cathy Kelley and Shadia Bseiso will serve as the backstage interviewers, and Kayla Braxton will handle the ring announcer duties. Read more at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: WWE will be holding a parade of champions tonight at 6CT/7ET that will stream on Facebook Live, Youtube, and Twitter. It will be interesting to see if the same broadcast team calls the WWE Evolution show or if they take a different approach. WWE will air a bracketology special for the tournament on August 29 following the NXT television show. The special will be hosted by Mauro Ranallo and Beth Phoenix. WWE is taping the Mae Young Classic tonight and Thursday at the WWE Performance Center. If you attend a taping, you are encouraged to send a report or the basic results to firstname.lastname@example.org.
