Mae Young Classic tournament starts filming tonight at Full Sail University


WWE will start taping the Mae Young Classic 32-women tournament tonight at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, 24 hours after wrapping up four weeks of television tapings for NXT.

The full tournament, minus the final, will be taped over the next two days with Jim Ross and Lita calling the action from the broadcast booth.

16 of the 32 women were already revealed throughout the past few weeks but tonight, starting at 6:15PM EST, you can meet all the 32 participants when they take part in the Mae Young Classic Parade of Champions. This broadcast will be live – and free – on the WWE Facebook and YouTube social media accounts.

The WWE Network will start airing the Mae Young Classic on August 28 with four episodes available on demand. Episodes five through eight will be available on-demand starting September 4. The final tournament match will stream live from Las Vegas on Tuesday, September 12 at 10PM ET.

On August 20, right after SummerSlam goes off the air, the WWE Network will air Mae Young Classic: Bracketology, a special look at the inaugural tournament and its competitors.
