The success of WWE’s Cruiserweight classic was overwhelming. Not only did it turn out to be a successful show on the WWE Network, but it also provided WWE with the taste of some great independent talent.
Certain superstars that were part of the Cruiserweight classic found their place on the WWE roster as well, and this could be the reason the WWE is interested in having a similar tournament for the female wrestlers.
Though WWE is yet to confirm the event officially, the rumour mill has been buzzing about it for a long time, and some notable superstars have already expressed their desire to be part of the tournament.
While WWE might’ve already figured out who all they would want for the tournament; in this list, we are going to take a look at some women that would make matters more interesting.
Honourable Mention: Sexy Star
Sexy Star would’ve been much higher on the list if it wasn’t for her deal with Lucha Underground. She is arguably one of the most talented Women performers outside WWE and has been breaking stereotypes in Lucha Underground.
The fanfare that she has managed to create at the temple is impressive, and if WWE somehow finds a way to bring her in, it would be a great achievement for the company.
#5 Nicole Matthews
Recently on Twitter, WWE SmackDown Women’s champion Becky Lynch was asked about the best women performer outside WWE. Becky named Nicole Mathews, and this is enough to show how highly rated she is. Nicole made her professional wrestling debut back in 2006 and had been a mainstay on the independent wrestling scene ever since.
She was ranked 16th in the PWI Best 50 Female Singles wrestlers for both 2015 and 2016 and has won numerous championship as well. At just 29-years of age and with a wealth of experience of working around the world, Nicole is bound to be a great addition to the tournament.
