It was just over a month ago that WWE officially announced it would hold a tournament with 32 women from 17 countries broadcasting on the WWE Network. There weren’t many details at that time.
Today, PW Insider is reporting some plans that have apparently been firmed up.
- The tournament will be filmed in July at Full Sail University, though they could also film elsewhere.
- It will be a lot like the Cruiserweight Classic, and focus on international wrestlers.
- Background checks for possible contenders are ongoing.
- The finals of the tournament will be a live Network special that would air on Aug. 29.
That would be a Tuesday night, which would seemingly conflict with 205 Live or run against SmackDown Live. It’s still unclear, however, who exactly will be wrestling in this tournament, be it women from the main roster, NXT, or a group of outside names.
We’ll have to stay tuned for more details as they trickle in.
