WWE.com has revealed two more participants for the upcoming Mae Young Classic tournament. It turns out that Rhea Ripley and Sage Beckett will be partaking in the inaugural tournament very soon. Beckett wrestled in TNA and Shine Wrestling as Andrea, while Ripley is a wrestler in Australia who was formerly known as Demi Bennett. The tournament is about to begin tapings in just one week from Full Sail University, and the first round of the tournament is going to be made available on the WWE Network in August. It shouldn’t be too much longer before we learn the remaining names for the women’s tournament that will be taking place next week.
WWE has truly broken ground in women’s wrestling over the fast few years. We have seen the first-sever Iron Woman match, the first ever Steel Cage match, and the first ever Money in the Bank match that have exclusively featured female performers. It looks like we may soon be getting another female-only version of a beloved match. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter claims that WWE has been considering creating a women’s Royal Rumble match for next January. The match is apparently only in very early discussion stages, but it is certainly possible that it could be happening next year. This will likely be joined with the traditional 30-man Royal Rumble match later in the show.
We’ve been learning more and more about what WWE may have in store for fans attending San Diego Comic Con this year recently. For the first time ever, none of the male roster members will be attending the convention. WWE and Mattel will be represented by a panel featuring Sasha Banks, Bayley, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Nikki Bella. Renee Young is also going to be moderating the panel. The women will be taking questions from fans in attendance, and key Mattel personnel will be revealing the latest action figures as well. The convention lasts from July 19th-July 23rd. The panel will be taking place on July 20th at 1pm PST.
