WWE Shuts Down Mae Young Classic Returning Reports

WWE Shuts Down Mae Young Classic Returning Reports
As noted, a page on NXTTickets announced the 2019 edition of the Mae Young Classic will return in November.


Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp reached out to WWE, and a rep stated that it was posted in error. That doesn't mean the Mae Young Classic is not returning at all, but the announcement was just a mistake.

This would have been be the third edition of the Mae Young Classic as the tournament began in 2017. Kairi Sane was the inaugural winner of the tournament when she defeated Shayna Baszler. Toni Storm went on to win the 2018 Mae Young Classic with a win over Io Shirai. Both Sane and Storm went on to win the NXT Women's and NXT UK Women's Championships, respectively after their tournament victories.

Among the women that have competed in the Mae Young Classic are the likes of Rhea Ripley, Tegan Nox, Mia Yim, Rachel Evers, Deonna Purrazzo, Tessa Blanchard, Santana Garrett and more. The majority of the aforementioned women went on to sign with WWE and appear on NXT.
