32 women from across the world are competing in the Mae Young Classic, a tournament that celebrates the life of Mae Young, a trailblazer in women's wrestling. Following 8 episodes of the tournament, on the WWE Network, Shayna Baszler and Kairi Sane emerged as the final two participants, who will battle it out in Las Vegas, to win the coveted prize.

Before the tournament takes place, we get a special preview from WWE!

The heart of the matter

Hosted by the sensational Charly Caruso, the recap will feature a glimpse of the highlights from the past 8 episodes. The highlight of the show will be a contest between six talented women: Tessa Blanchard, Jazzy Gabert and Kay Lee Ray vs. Santana Garrett, Sarah Logan and Marti Belle. This is a way to whet the appetite of fans, before the big night.

What's next?

Less than twenty-four hours following the Mae Young Classic tournament special, we get to see the finals in all its glory. Watch the epic clash between the extraordinary Kairi Sane and Shayna Baszler, in a battle for the ages.

Author's take

Judging by the amazing response to the Mae Young Classic, WWE may be trying to capitalize on the momentum, with this special episode. In my opinion, one could choose to skip this episode. Especially if he/she has already caught the 8 episodes aired before this one.
