WWE adds four competitors to the Mae Young Classic tournament


WWE announced four new participants who will be taking part in the second Mae Young Classic tournament next month.

Mercedes Martinez returns to the tournament after an impressive outing last year where she reached the semi finals and ultimately losing to Shayna Baszler.

Mia Yim is also back for her second go in the tournament. Last year, Yim got eliminated in the round of 16 by Shayna Baszler and later in the year suffered a leg injury which kept her out of action for several months.

Making her second appearance on WWE television will be Killer Kelly. She recently wrestled during the WWE United Kingdom Championship tournament at the Royal Albert Hall in a triple threat match. She is a former wXw women’s champion.

And the last name added is Crystal, a 24-year-old from the Philippines. Known as the “Queen of Philippine Wrestling,” Crystal was discovered by WWE during a scouting trip last year.

14 out of 32 females have so far been announced in this tournament which tapes on August 8 and 9 at Full Sail University.
