From The WWE Rumor Mill: Possible date for WWE's second edition of The Mae Young Classic
What’s the story?
According to a recent report from Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens, the current belief is that the WWE could very well postpone the Mae Young Classic II and could possibly shift the scheduled date further in the month of July or August (Courtesy of Ringside News).
In case you didn’t know…
During this year's WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, it was seemingly announced that the company will be bringing back the Mae Young Classic later this year for a second addition, as part of a WWE Network exclusive show.
The heart of the matter
Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens recently took it to his Twitter handle and noted that he was apparently told that the second edition the WWE Mae Young Classic tournament could very well be shifted back around the month of July or August.
However, in addition, Michael also claimed that since it’s already the month of May and since we’ve apparently heard no further updates regarding the Mae Young Classic II.
The fans certainly shouldn’t expect the WWE to put up a potential line-up for the Mae Young Classic II and thus, the initial kick-off to the tournament could be delayed further.
As of right now, we aren’t sure regarding a potential date for the Mae Young Classic II.
However, with the second edition of the UK Tournament starting within a few short weeks, we could certainly expect WWE to make a big announcement regarding the second edition of the Mae Young Classic as well.
The MYC II could possibly kick-start following the conclusion of the 2018 WWE UK Tournament and the WWE Universe should expect some big names to be a part of this year’s tournament as well.
Personally, I’d love to see the likes of Toni Storm, Mercedes Martinez, Chelsea Green, Britt Baker, and even Jessicka Havok take part in this year’s Mae Young Classic tournament.
On the other hand, seeing the likes of Io Shirai or Tessa Blanchard compete in this tournament will also be a huge deal for the WWE in terms of promotion and in terms of outside fan support as well.
