Over the past few months we’ve been receiving information here and there regarding the upcoming Women’s Tournament.

Triple H, the man that WWE describes as being the “driving force” behind the Women’s Evolution, took to Twitter to reveal the official name and logo for the tournament:

Taking a similar step to its predecessor, ‘The Cruiserweight Classic’, WWE have named the women’s version as ‘The Mae Young Classic’, in honor of the late and great Hall of Famer herself.

The tournament will consist of 32 women from 17 different countries around the world compete in the programme this summer.

‘The Mae Young Classic’ will begin filming in Full Sail University – the same place as the weekly NXT tapings – on July 13th and 14 this year. The series will consist of 8 – 10 episodes that will be released as box sets (as exemplified through the release of WWE Network originals ‘Camp WWE’ and ‘Swerved’).

The finals will likely be filmed and aired live to avoid spoilers, though no confirmation on this has cropped up.

Triple H also revealed that tickets for the show will go on sale this Friday at 10am ET on NXTTickets.com:

The Diva Dirt community has been anticipating this tournament, and we even asked you to list your wish list of competitors on the show!

There is yet to be any public conversations based on who we will see in the company, but rumors indicate that we shall see women from Stardom, PROGRESS and WWE’s past show up.
