A few months ago I recommended WWE holding a WWE Global Women's tournament. And it turns out WWE has one in the works.

They've sent out notices to some women and companies that are known for their women talent. There is a lot of good women talent out there, especially if you look at Japan and Mexico. And I think there are some hidden stars out there not in the WWE/NXT system.

It's interesting when WWE sent out some tips to women they included the regular being in shape, proper gear deal they always tell everyone. They also told the women to no longer 'gig' or bleed at these events.

I can tell you, and this has been a big topic of conversation in the wrestling/television industry. That television stations are shying away from the blood. One company that regularly does inter-gender matches recently lost out on a MAJOR marketing/television deal due to these matches be held.

I'm excited for WWE to start this tournament.

First competitors revealed for WWE's Mae Young Classic:
  • Toni Storm
  • Lacey Evans
  • Princess Sugey
  • Sarah Logan (Crazy Mary Dobson)
Toni Storm is the big indy name in this first group.

The Lacey Evans presentation is so GLOW. Although, if not for the ridiculous hair, she looks like she could legit kick some ass.

Crazy Mary Dobson is not a surprise. I will say that seeing how Heidi Lovelace has developed in NXT, this is a good place and time for talents like CMD to go.

Princess Sugey is a surprise. I guess some other more notable luchadoras may have some exclusive contracts that prevent them from making this move.

I don't see how this thing doesn't end with Kairi Hojo running through the competition with relative ease, unless there is a surprise entrant like Faby Apache or Ayako Hamada on deck.

Kiera Hogan should get a call. She's got stardom in themaking.

Lacey Evans vibes star to me, but they gotta make up their minds between the glam thing (which I think works for her) and the military thing.

So long from the Sunshine State!

I'd go with the military thing. I think her physical presence could make that work. The GLOW glam seems more ironic.

With no Tessa Blanchard, this is not legit.

Toni Storm is still the best of the bunch so far. Adding Alpha Female says a lot about the talent in Stardom, which I hope alludes to the biggest name, representing Japan.

Announced commentary team seems like a recipe for disaster. I'm planning to use either the SAP or the mute now, unfortunately.

We know what Lawler is going to talk about and it's not the wrestling going on in the ring.

In other women's wrestling news, WWE is not going to sign io Shirai at this moment. She wasn't able to pass the companies pre-employment physical.

Apparently she has some major neck issues that need to be addressed before WWE will put her under contract.

Let's just hope, she doesn't go back to Stardom before taking care of her medical concerns.

This is from her match last week against Mayu Iwatami.

Not really protecting her neck. Maybe dropping the belt is a sign she will take some time off to heal.

I have a problem with Ross cliches. I can guarantee he'll describe Kairi Hojo as "quicker than a hiccup." I'd bet money on it.

And Lita borders on inaudible or mumbling or just making noises when she doesn't resort to Steiner math.

I'll be using SAP.

Eh.Ross has been great with NJPW recently and he was absolutely on fire fantastic in the Bate/Dunne match.He'll be fine.

Mauro and Beth Phoenix would be infinitely better.

I would say Ross was horrible on NJPW, struggling with name pronunciations and move names throughout, until he just resorted to working around knowing what the move was with some ham-fisted cliche.

And, with Bate vs. Dunne, I gave him a chance for about two minutes before he went to his first tired cliche and I went to mute with music.

Fans seem to have a fondness for Jim Ross. Or his voice is just the background noise that elicits a sense of nostalgia for a time when they were younger and excited about wrestling. But he's not good at all, particularly at this stage.

Now... it's legit.

Mae Young Classic field widens with addition of international sensations, including Japan’s Kairi Sane

List so far...
  • Abbey Laith
  • Bianca Belair
  • Dakota Kai
  • Jazzy Gabert
  • Kairi (Hojo) Sane
  • Kavita Devi
  • Lacey Evans
  • (Viper) Piper Niven
  • Princesa Sugehit
  • Sarah Logan (Crazy Mary Dobson)
  • Taynara Conti
  • Tessa Blanchard
  • Toni Storm

Adding Viper destroys the myth of the stereotype in the second post of this thread. If Triple H is calling the shots on this, he can't take over the entire company soon enough. She's really good at the UK chain wrestling style.

He can't compare with Mauro on NJPW,which I've said in other threads but Mauro is the best at this point and knows the style inside and out.I have a fondness for JR,not because of nostalgia,but because he's good.He was great calling the Okada/Suzuki and Okada/Shibata matches.Turning off the sound for Bate/Dunne is your loss,and you don't know how he did in that match because of that so your opinion holds no water there.Also,those kids getting those fans into that match and the crowd reaction to them was one of the things that made that match memorable so you really did yourself a disservice there.Every announcer has cliche's homie,it's just they way it is.Just because you've had enough doesn't mean he sucks it just means you get to watch the matches he's doing while listening to your favorite music.Sounds like fun bro.

Zhao Xia from the Performance Center will be representing China. Not a knock, but I wonder how much they'll edit for the broadcast. I know they like to tape and present everything like it's live (which results in a lot of the annoying quick cuts), but that could leave a couple of the lesser experienced participants really exposed unless they get them in and out of there quickly with a well-choreographed match.

Also, regarding Jim Ross, Reddit reactions to him being announced for English commentary on NJPW. I understand finding him to be likable, but being objective about his lack of play-by-play and commentary ability is a separate issue. For me personally, he's just annoying on commentary and takes away from the match instead of adding to it.
