We just reported further on 17 names reportedly signed for the upcoming Mae Young Classic Women’s Tournament in the WWE, but today the WWE themselves announced the first four competitors for the tournament. While two of them were on the list reported the other day – Sarah Logan (formerly Crazy Mary Dobson) and NXT’s Lacey Evans – the other two were not, although one was highly rumoured. Here’s a closer look at the other two names announced for the tournament, which begins filming in one month.
28 years old, Auckland, New Zealand
Toni Storm took part in the PROGRESS showcase at WrestleMania Axxess this year, which lead many to speculate she was being scouted for the tournament, so it’s no surprise she’s one of the first announced. She’s one of the top female competitors in the world right now, as she’s the current reigning PROGRESS Women’s Champion and Stardom SWA World Champion, as well as a former Women’s Champion with Impact Pro Wrestling in Australia.
36 years old, Monterrey, Mexico
This 36-year old luchadora emmascarada is a 21-year veteran of the industry, debuting in 1996 and spending much of her first decade in AAA. In 2005, she jumped to CMLL where she’s become one of Mexico’s biggest female stars. She’s currently the reigning Mexican National Women’s Champion and a former CMLL-Reina International Champion.
