WWE Mae Young Classic - Summer 2017

Recommended Posts

KLR being in is terrific news. I saw a tweet last week of her, Nixon, Kai and Riot spending July 4th together, so wondered if she was a possibility.

Be interesting to see what Ayesha Ray is like now, saw her face Nixon last year, and she seemed pretty green, but she had a good imposing look that should take her far if her wrestling has caught up.

Figured KLR would be involved. So happy to see that. Will be interesting to see if her, Viper, & Toni face off at all during this since all three are in Stardom's 5*GP next month. I hope at least one of them makes the semis, if not the finals themselves. Actually hopefully we get KLY vs. Kairi since it never happened in Stardom.

She has been around for 6-7 years. I doubt its caught up.

I love that Mercedes might be in, great veteran to include. Always liked Marti Belle and Shayna would be a unique addition to it as well. Also cool for Barbi Hayden to get a shot.

I like Barbi too. Her style's not flashy but she's decent. And really cool for Mercedes! 

I'm super excited for this. Really interesting mix of wrestlers.

I hope they all get issued Tap Out-branded old-timey one pieces like was worn in Mae Young's day.  It'll look legit like UFC.  Or like Triple H is running a customs company.

Also - on JR's podcast they announced that Madusa will be doing commentary with Lita and JR (so that is her "unknown" role now)

Surely, the solution to this certain commentary train wreck is adding another runaway train to the tracks.

Has Madusa ever done commentary before?

Okay - so it appears that some of the women who are working the MYC are working the TV tapings too.

I wasn't going to say anything due to NXT spoilers - however (and especially since she was already announced as working)

Lei'd Tapa worked a match and may have gotten legit injured

Extremely disappointed by the women they've put in this tournament. Marti Belle!? It had the potential to be something really special and it's really just a bunch of meh.

And this point I honestly can't remember who was has officially been announced yet and who hasn't but per Rip Rogers twitter

We knew Alpha had been announced but I am taking that as confirmation that Deonna and Matthews are in (especially as they have been rumored as such)

Blue Pants must really be on the outs with them.  She seems like she would be a good familiar name to go out in the first round to put over someone like Viper or Alpha Female.

Someone said the same thing to them but they haven't responded yet

Assume one or two of those names are potential injury replacements

Which is why she'd be fine as first round squash fodder.

You would run the risk of fans chanting "We want Blue Pants" at the expense of other matches though. Best to just leave her out

I don't mean to turn this thread into a Blue Pants debate. However, after seeing the qualifying match on NXT last night, which was both shitty AND generated zero crowd reaction, I don't know that having a bad wrestler who's at least over participate is that much of a negative.

Yeah the winner of the last qualifying match makes Lana look like AJ Styles.

Good to see they didn't go crazy with the ring look like they did for the CWC.

I make that about ten I'm excited to see, another 6 or so I'd classify as solid and a whole lot of question marks.

Looks like Nicole Matthews is an alternate, too bad for her, although with 30 matches to be taped in 2 days injuries are pretty much a certainty.

Wonder if Rachael Ellering wrestling under her NXT name makes it more or less likely that she's signed?

Soft spot seeing Serena Deeb and Mercedes Martinez in this.  Serena was great in the indies, had some really good stuff in OVW, and then got caught in the hell of 2006 until she got into the Straight Edge Society.   She would have been in the class of the 4 Horsewomen if she can in the NXT era.   Martinez really should have gotten a chance as well.   

Loved the sign putting over Dave Prazak.  Don't know if there would any of this without Shimmer

She goes by Rachael Evers - at least that is the name she has used when on NXT TV in the past

Deonna is also in the alternate category

I notice Lei Tapia isn't in it - I wonder if she did get legit hurt last night or if she was never intended to be in it
