In a pair of tweets earlier today, Triple H made the formal announcement of the Mae Young Classic. The tweets are shown below. During Wrestlemania weekend, the company had established than a women’s tournament event would take place this summer, but had not formalized any details at that time.
The event will feature 32 women from around the world, and will take place at Full Sail University in Winter Haven, FL on July 13 and 14, 2017. The event will also be broadcast on WWE Network, though no airing time has been given as of this writing. Tickets for the event will go on sale on Friday, May 26 at 10AM EST and can be purchased at NXTTickets.com.
The event is named in honor of WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young, who passed away in 2014. More on this event as additional details are released.
