  • A?.

    So excited, but also kinda disappointed. Why are most of the competitors American? And most of the winners are American as well, I was expecting more diversity. But sounds good.

  • Round one looks great, but I really wish Santana and KLR advanced to the second round, over Rhia and Rachel. That’d be my only complaint, otherwise I’m happy.

  • #RiotWithRuby

    I’m already disappointed…

    But ayyye! My Trifectas Mercedes, Shayna, and Nicole are all in the second round.

    • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

      All dyk:..:hey cute stan list queeny

      • Ev???

        You’re so ugly for this

        • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

          Scrm ???

        • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

          Bitch stay over there where you belong umm

  • Jonny

    I’m shocked at some of these but you can’t say it’s predictable which is good.

    Really intrigued to see Xia Li in action and I’m really pleased Nicole Savoy, Viper and Mercedes won their matches.

  • Bryskers

    I am SO freaking happy to read all those amazing about Kairi. And she got to keep her Princess Pirate gimmick AND her elbow drop. It doesn’t get any better than that.

  • Bryskers

    Kind of surprised that KLR and Santana got eliminated in the first round. I didn’t expect Sage and Alpha to go this soon as well, but I’m happy for Abbey. But I’m not too disappointed either. Apparently all the girls delivered and that’s really what matters the most. I can’t wait to watch it.

  • HOLLA

    Can’t freakin wait!!!!

  • I’m really surprised they let Mia Yim win over Sarah Logan. Thought for sure they were gonna push Sarah in this tournament. Do you think that means she’s signed a contract w/ WWE? I’m assuming not everybody in the tournament has signed a developmental deal but I could be wrong.

    • Gavin

      I think they will sign Mia, if they haven’t already.

  • Well the tournament has done average for the second round but I really hope Santana and KLR get a contract in WWE/NXT hopefully.

    PS even though these two girls are vey unknown and probably don’t have much ring experience, Taynara and Miranda Salinas really caught my eye so kudos to them for making me remember their names.

    My predicted winners are Dakota, Toni, Candice and Kairi well any of those 4 better win!

  • The_Shockerwave

    So basically it’s gonna be a Crappy Outcome, lolz.

  • Issac Gore

    I really wanted Lufisto in this but Im happy to see Mia Yim, KLR, Candice LaRae and Santana Garrett. Im looking forward to Xia Li she has my attention.

  • LoveEvaBella

    I’m pretty sure Kairi will win this and she’ll be the one to defeat Asuka

    • Hugo Prado

      Oh sweetheart that’s not gonna happen.

      • Michael Burmy

        It could…afterwards, Ember would attack her for a MUCH-needed heel turn to set up a feud for a future Takeover!

        • Ken Lushh

          i’m all the way here for that!

      • LoveEvaBella

        It will, it will either be a toss between Kairi or Ronda Rousey’s friend

  • LoveEvaBella

    Kairi screams a superstar to me. WWE can definitely make merch with her pirate gimmick and kids will love it.

  • K. W. M.

    We get a womens tournament with some of the best talents out there, WWE promotes it like hell and starts a new era for the girls and people complain about the results? Ok! :/

    • Mr. Giem

      IKR, that’s why we never get nice things.

    • wysna

      Not much complaints on my end other than Santana and KLR being early outs. I just feel like the company could’ve done more with them as far as the future matches are concerned since both are quite good in the ring.

  • Hoooshi

    WWE still thinking that Ronda Rousey is relevant lol

    Anyway, I’m sad for KLR and Santana, hopefully they will sign and we will see them on NXT. Is Bianca the only home grown talent who won the first round?

    Kairi is going to be a huge deal in the future, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she wins it. Excited to watch her, Candice, Toni and my fellow Brazilian, Taynara.

    • Mr. Giem

      Lacey Evans also made it to the next round, I guess they were the only ones.

      • Hoooshi

        Oh right, I forgot she is not from the Indies.

        • She is! Just not that known then lol

          • Hoooshi

            I really don’t remember hearing from her before she got on NXT.

          • She only had couple of local matches so you didn’t miss anything.

      • Lacey wrestled on the Indies before.

        • Mr. Giem

          I read an interview where said something like that but I don’t know if that counts. I bet she has learned almost everything in the Performance Center.

          • Well all I know is that she started before WWE but like you said NXT most likely polished her

          • Mr. Giem

            Yep, like you said below she had some local matches but everyone sees her as a homegrown talent (which is not a bad thing BTW).

    • Rob G

      Brasileiro/a tbm??

      • Hoooshi

        Brasileira! Oi migo/a :)

        • Rob G

          Brasileiro, ja tava na hora da gente dominar o women’s wrestling tbm, amo

    • E-Force

      Só tem brasilindos nessa merda

    • I have a feeling Rousey will end up in the WWE. She obviously loves wrestling and I actually think they could use her.

      • perceval

        Nah. She’s rich, so she can do whatever she chooses without worrying about paying the bills. Why would she want to work a WWE schedule at this point in her life?

        However, I could see her doing something with them to get her friends, her group of Horsewomen, contracts. 4 Horsewomen vs 4 Horsewomen at Survivor Series?

    • Raekon

      Nope. Lacey Evans is also a rather homegrown talent and she advanced too.
      I hope that both though lose in the next round cause I want the best and more experienced women to be in the finals.

  • Mr. Giem

    I can’t wait to watch these episodes! In my opinion, even if this wasn’t perfect it’s still great! Most of the right competitors advanced to the next round and it feels like the women really made an impression.

    Some thoughts:
    * My heart was broken when I read Santana got eliminated during the first round.
    * Candice’s and Kairi’s matches are the ones I’m looking forward the most.
    * Happy that Princesa Sugehit made it to the second round since she’s the only Luchadora in the tournament.
    * Shocked to know Alpha Female is gone in the first round. I’m happy Abby won her match but I would rather to see Alpha last longer on the tournament over than Viper/Piper Niven.
    * Ready to be impressed by Dakota (Evie), Lacey Evans, Shayna Baszler and Toni Storm.
    * I have big expectations on Xia Li, Mia Yim, Bianca Belair and Serena Deeb’s redemption story.

    • Same for Santana :(

      • Mr. Giem

        I know! I was rooting for her to advance at least to the semi-finals.

        • Samee, even the second round would’ve been nice. But I heard she and Viper did great so that’s a plus.

          • Mr. Giem

            Never watched Viper before so I’m curious to see the match.
            I hope Santana gets signed after this. It has taken so long…

          • Let’s hope she does

          • Izzy4lw

            Someone above brought up a good point- the 3 surprises of the 1st round were KLR, Santana, Alpha, and Sage (to me): all of whom had ties to impact. Only Mia escaped that fate, and that may be because she is one of the bigger mainstream names- but management may have wanted to limit the TNA representation in the later parts of the tournament -_-

          • Marti as well. She’s well known. Let’s hope the girls impress them enough to secure those contracts. I’m rooting for them.

          • Izzy4lw

            When they announced Marti she looked on the verge of tears- I just felt for her in that moment.

            Santana and KLR are far too talented to not be offered a contract over a grudge. I’m hoping we see them on NXT soon

          • Ikr, Mercedes looked emotional as well. It was nice to see them make it this far at least.
            And I agree. Those two need it the most, along with Mia if she doesn’t win.

          • Izzy4lw

            In mercedes’ case it’s an issue of age – mercedes is past her prime, but remember 5-7 years ago there were 3 women on the Indy scene everyone talked about as the top women: Sara Del Rey, Cheerleader Melissa, and Mercedes Martinez. I think Mercedes even once talked about how she’d love to be in WWE but that she didn’t look the part and she wished they were more competitive; fast forward 8-9 years and she’s finally in the WWE showing people what she could do. I want Mercedes to make the top 8 at least. I doubt she’ll win, but I want her to have a good run.

          • Gavin

            I wouldn’t be surprised if they signed Merecedes. I think she will renew her Shimmer feud with Ember once Ember beats Asuka for the title.

          • Izzy4lw

            See I think if they signed her it’d be as a trainer- which isn’t bad at all since she is a crazy good wrestler, but I dunno if they’d want her as an active performer

          • Gavin

            I don’t know if she would want that though. She’s doing so good in the indies right now. Sara has always been more passionate about training other girls than being a wrestler herself, and I don’t know if Mercedes is the same way.

          • Izzy4lw

            She’s still an elite talent- I’d hope they’d bring her on as an active performer though- she could really give us that brutal heel we’ve been missing since Jazz or Victoria, and she could help so many girls

          • Gavin

            Then again, if WWE was gonna sign her, I think she would have dropped her indy titles since she is holding the major ones right now.

          • Yepp exactly. You put it the best.

          • Based on her TNA run I got the impression that Marti was pretty generic.

          • Gavin

            That’s definitely a theory, but the fact that they let Mia use Eat Defeat makes me think that that isn’t really a big problem. Plus, those 4 never really did anything memorable in TNA.

          • Izzy4lw

            That could also just be that WWE is no longer upset with Gail Kim, since like it or not she’s tied to WWE’s past (particularly the golden era) and Gail has been playing nice with HHH recently. Mia Yim is also a huge name for mainstream wrestling fans- as far as competitors go, she’s one of the only women who carry the Indy badge for us wrestling smarks, and the mainstream exposure for the casual fan to know who she is. She has the recognition to be a draw, so eliminating her now would have been a mistake

          • Mr. Giem

            Good point but IMO it loses validation considering Sage is signed to NXT.

          • Izzy4lw

            Didn’t sage only wrestle like 3 matches though before she almost killed Someone and was released though? Not saying it’s why they got taken out so early -plus Sage is signed, so it is rly like we WONT see more of her. I just feel bad for KLR and Santana, who have so much to give WWE, have no (that we know of) offer, and who could have used the MYC to really make a case for themselves.

          • Gavin

            No. She injured Daffney during her tryout match, but they signed her anyway.

          • Izzy4lw

            That’s what it was- I’m ashamed to say I didn’t follow her career much during that time. I guess I’m more trying to find a reason for taking KLR and Santana out of the tournament so early so I’m reaching for something, anything lol

          • Mr. Giem

            To be fair Sage doesn’t look anything like she did back when she was Rosie Lottalove. I’m actually kinda intrigued why most of the people who advanced to the next round aren’t signed.
            And I’m totally sad for Santana, I still pray she gets signed soon.

          • Izzy4lw

            Their loss shocked me to my core- I’m just praying that Toni, Candice, Mercedes, Dakota,Kairi, and Mia make it to the top 8. The last two can be whoever, but I need them to make it past next round too lol

          • Mr. Giem

            I felt the same way, Santana was one of my picks to the semi-finals.

            My prediction is Candice, Kairi, Dakota, Shayna, Mia, Lacey, Toni and Serena for the final 8.

          • Izzy4lw

            I just want Mercedes in the top 8- she’s such a huge star and so supremely talented, I’d love to see her have a decent run in WWE

          • Mr. Giem

            Never watched her before so I’m definitely looking forward to see her match and what she brings to the tournament. I might change my mind once that I watch the first whole round.

          • KatyaMenelli

            She made it to the final four

          • Raekon

            Nope, it was only on her tryout that Daffney got injured back then when she started. She improved A LOT since then and has worked in the Indies as Andrea having great matches.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Miss Viper is one of the best wrestlers inthe U.K. male or female. Don’t let her size fool you. She is quick and stiff af. Like Jackie stiff.

          • Mr. Giem

            I read a lot of good reviews of her matches so I’m curious to watch her perform, specially her match against Santana Garrett.

    • Gavin

      I don’t get what they see in Piper, especially over Santana. Santana is the full package.

      • Mr. Giem

        Agree! I guess they were looking for the next monster heel but the picked the wrong one.

      • wysna

        It is baffling but could it be that Santana actually wants to remain a free agent and just wanted to earn a few bucks and some exposure through this tourney?

        • Gavin

          That might be the best thing for her honestly. She always seems to get done kinda dirty by the bigger companies, whereas she has thrived in the indies.

      • Almarpar

        Viper is brillint in the ring, shes big but shes fast and always puts on amazing matches, i am big fan.

        • Gavin

          Santana can, too.

          • Almarpar

            . . . great.

      • Gato_wiska

        Well Piper is prettier than Santana. Yes she is Big but there is a BBW demographic. Santana already have wrinkles and fine lines for her age. I think Viper have a potential to be a modern Mountain Fiji.

  • K. W. M.

    I know Kairi, Candice, Evie and others are in it, but i root for Bianca! :)

  • Rob G

    Can’t wait to see the matches, I’m rooting for Toni, Candice and Bianca.

  • Haraya

    Most of my wishlist won in the first round, except KLR, Santana & Sarah :(

  • conan_kun

    Is WWE really taking Mae Young Classic seriously
    https://twitter.com/ProWrestlingMag/status/885423681073238016

    • Izzy4lw

      are they kidding!? Toni, Candice, Santana, Taynara, etc are gorgeous! But even outside of that, we should be passed the looks phase where every girl has to be “hot” I mean in the Golden Era, Jazz and Molly weren’t what you’d consider the typical beauties that WWE looked for (and before them Ivory, Jackie, and Luna) but what you remember about them was what they could do as characters and as wrestlers. It’s like Management forgets that a lot of their women who are remembered today weren’t the T&A girls -_-

      • Raekon

        One of the reasons why Jazzy (Alpha female) and Mercedes Martinez never got signed was because of their look.
        Jazzy even were in conventions and other stuff in the past in which she even posed with Triple H in Pictures after good tryouts and yet they wouldn’t sign her cause at that time the “Diva Era” was dominant.
        Same Thing happen back then to several other women that “didn’t looked the part” including Awesome Kong.
        That’s what got me upset for years and I’m beyond happy they took their heads out of their arsers and finally realized that diversity is the key to real success.
        Not having a bunch of good looking women “playing Wrestling” only (even several of them could wrestle well).

        • Mercedes has been looking gorgeous lately!

    • #MirandaCosgroveVSAsukaWM34

      Couldn’t the old men of WWE just … die?

      I mean, it’s not wrong. It would just cheering for nature to work

    • Lushluke

      Some are unrealistic with looks to win, they need to be a strong all rounder which does include sex appeal and good looks. I’m going with Lacey to win

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      I understand both sides of the argument I understand the fans side and the WWE side but the bigger concern for me as a fan would be can they do more than just wrestle

    • Bryskers

      I don’t know If I believe this.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Damn no Eva Marie

    • Vito

      right!!!!

  • Gavin

    Pretty good. I am annoyed Santana and Marti got out in the first round, especially Santana. Queen Alicia getting that tv time!

  • TotalDivasMark

    They really got rid of Kay Lee Ray first round? That girl is one of the best female highflyers around and a freaking beast in the ring. It’s a shame she won’t be able to show off her talents in this tournament :*( https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/16bd76e37794b5bc9289ff69e39f6c375a495e8d353d91adfb42082125447572.gif

    • Izzy4lw

      I was surprised she was out so soon- I didn’t expect KLR and Santana to be out round 1, and I thought the “monsters” in Sage and Alpha would last longer as well! Still, my top 4 from jump stayed in – so I’ve still got Dakota, Toni, Candice, and Kairi to cheer for! Also Mia Yim and Mercedes are still in it as well, so overall I’m happy!

      • TotalDivasMark

        I feel like they are just getting rid of people that have already been shown on WWE TV or have been showcased on TNA. Kay Lee was a jobber for Nia while she was in NXT and apart of TNA’s British Boot Camp. Similar situation with Santana and Alpha. It’s really unfortunate tho because they’re really great talents

        • Izzy4lw

          You’re right…. dang, that sucks because they’re all super strong talents. I hope Santana and KLR get offers though- they’re so talented!

        • Wait, when was Alpha jobbed out on NXT??

          *EDIT*

          Nevermind; I re-read it; Alpha made short lived TNA appearances.

          • Gavin

            She was in TNA in early 2014.

          • Izzy4lw

            I think they meant that Alpha and Santana were showcased on impact which they shared In common with KLR, not that Alpha was jobbed out.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        I am very happy Mercedes is in it as well and I hope she goes far! She’s truly a veteran in this business and for how long she’s been there, it’s so great to see finally her get an opportunity from WWE and but most importantly, get to participate in an historical moment for women’s wrestling in general.

    • MK126

      She does a better swanton then Jeff hardy does…

    • John Finnie

      She may get signed to NXT

  • Also, I had a feeling they wouldn’t let Mia use her REAL finisher (Package Piledriver). I find it interesting that she chose Gail’s finisher as a replacement. I was somewhat interested in what each winner would use as finishers since about half of their ACTUAL finishers are banned by WWE.

    • Gavin

      I was kinda hoping for SkyYim. Maybe next time.

    • Gato_wiska

      Korean giving Tribute to a Korean.

    • Raekon

      It’s because stupidly the wwe only allows Kane and the Undertaker to use a piledriver. :(
      So I already knew it they won’t her use her real finisher.

      • QueenSableBomb

        I don’t blame them, the piledriver is dangerous. Austin almost lost his entire career due to one

  • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

    This is all so surreal. I’m a little disappointed that KLR, Rene Michelle, Santana, and a few others were eliminated in the first round. Especially those 3 I mentioned who I’ve been wanting in WWE for some time now.

  • Gavin

    I hope Serena is getting signed again since she came out of retirement for this.

    • conan_kun

      Gallows & Serena managed to return to WWE, though who knows Serena may be one night only, but Punk never even if it’s just a cameo appearance
      http://www.accelerator3359.com/Wrestling/pictures/straightedgesociety5.jpg

    • #MirandaCosgroveVSAsukaWM34

      The way they fired her was so stupid and unbelievable.

      • Izzy4lw

        Was it because she was drinking to much? I forget what the reason even was.

        • Gavin

          Punk tattled on her and got her fired. He’s a dick.

          • Izzy4lw

            For what though? Like what was the complaint? Was it as dumb as Mickie for almost missing her bus or making people late because she was late to he bus or something? -_-

          • Gavin

            She got fired for not being straight-edge in real life, which is ridiculous.

          • Izzy4lw

            That’s absolutely ridiculous. -_____-

            Well, at least she’s still undefeated in WWE; she’s beaten Kelly Kelly, and now she beat Vanessa Borne.

  • Michael Burmy

    #LetJessicaWrestle

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    It’s fucking stupid that Santana and Kay Lee Ray are out in the first round.

    • KellyKellyisbeast

      Ikr I was rooting for Santana as soon as I heard she would be in the tournament then they do this to me??

    • Super Mateo

      Somebody had to lose. There’s no way all 32 ladies can win.

  • Michael Burmy

    PS: Don’t get upset if your fave is getting eliminated in the first round…remember, the ones who get the “slow build” always end up having the better long-term careers (cases in point: all 4HW as well as Alexa Bliss)

    • Dr. Tomee

      I don’t think all of them are signed to a contract.

  • Omar J Tahhan

    So far so good

    I would’ve replaced Marinda and Michelle with Tapa (Tonga) and Deonna Purrazzo (Italy) because I feel like we have too many Americans.

    My only dissapointment is with the monsters out soon, would love to see Jazzy, Ayesha and Sage destroy their opponent in the 1st round.

    I want Mercedes to win but it’s unlikely so I going for Kairi Sane or Toni Storm.

    • Raekon

      I heard Tapa, Deonna and others were still there since they had 38 women backstage for just in case. Tapa would had even been in it but had a injury preventing her from participating so they replaced her with someone else.
      She was still backstage watching with the other women so it might be a good sign and meaning that they will still sign her together with others. :)

  • ?K . A . T ?

    I’m happy with this but I have to question why Kay Lee Ray & Santana Garrett were eliminated first round?

  • Lushluke

    Yeh get rid of all the old indie girls they want fresh new talent to win this. Not someone that’s been doing it for 10 years with injurys and whatever else. Bianca to win

  • Vince Martin

    Dakota Kai FTW!!! She’s like a prettier version of Bayley. Been intrigued with her since she wrestled Nia Jax

  • Dionte Brown

    Damn I was rooting for Tessa.

  • DJ

    Ya’ll now watch this girl FLYYYYYYYYYYY

    https://twitter.com/JJWilliamsWON/status/885681453052198912

    Rooting for KAIRI SANE all the way.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      It’s so beautiful!

    • Wicked Bliss

      Perfect elbow drop

    • Izzy4lw

      Omg her elbow drop looks super painful to take (that’s a good thing) I’ve seen it before used in STARDOM, but I never thought WWE would allow her to keep the move with Bayley who had been using it

      • Danny?

        When Kairi does an elbow drop like that Bayley should be forced to get rid of her mediocre one.

        • Izzy4lw

          Oh absolutely, But you know how WWE gets with their bigger stars – if they do something, no matter how mediocre, they make sure nobody else does it -_-

          • Danny?

            Yeah you have a good point there, I’m thankful she still gets to use it considering just how good she does it.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          Honestly, I don’t see why both shouldn’t be able to use it. Bayley did it first here and it’s Kairi’s famous big move so honestly, I am fine with both using it.
          Both Reigns and Kaitlyn or Edge and Batista used the spear at the same time so I don’t see why both couldn’t be able to do that.

          • Danny?

            I don’t see it being a problem for them both to use it but WWE tend not to like it so if it was one or the other I’d take Kairi’s every time.

          • John Finnie

            Kinda like Nia & Tamina with the samoan drop

          • Maddox

            And everyone using Super kicks when it’s HBK’s finisher

          • Wicked Bliss

            But Kairi used it as a finisher while Bayley used it as a signature (altho she beat Charlotte with elbow drop once) I think it only works if all superstar use it as finisher/signature. It will give people an idea that move itself is not worthy as a finisher if the other is using it only as a signature.

    • John Finnie

      Bayley just turned heel after that….. the dark side is seeping in’ the jealously is starting lol

    • Bryskers

      Finally the WWE audience is able to witness a good looking elbow drop.

      (just kidding, Bayley’s one is cute. But the way Kairi’s body adjusts is magnificient. Not to mention how impactful it looks…)

  • Raekon

    I would had really let Sage and Jazzy advance over Lacey and Bianca cause both would had been able to put up great matches for the top 8 and because I’m afraid that they will let Lacey or Bianca win the whole Thing which would unfortunately make for a underwhelming final. :(
    So rather dissappointed that KLR, Jazzy, Sage and Santana went out early but happy that at least Abbey has advanced and that she and Jazzy had one of the best matches in the tournament so far! :)

  • Dr. Tomee

    I am bummed about Kay Lee Ray and Santana.

    Among those who passed, the ones I can see winning the whole thing are Toni Storm, Dakota Kai, Candice LeRae, Kairi Sane. I am personally rooting for Candice, but any of the above will make me happy.

    I’m not sure how I feel about both Bianca and Lacey advancing. I don’t trust them that much since they barely got any exposure on NXT, but I’ll try to stay positive.

    • Dr. Tomee

      Oh and Mia Yim, she’s really good too

  • conan_kun

    Off topic, can Diva Dirt post this week Main Event Redux

    • Vince Martin

      OMG thanks for this!!!

    • E-Force

      This match was a letdown to me…

      • John Finnie

        Really it was better than both Raw & Smackdown tag matches & it was fresh also remember this was their first outing

    • Michael Burmy

      #EmmaToSmackdown

    • John Finnie

      MJ got a great reaction so proud of my girl
      ** sidenote* did you notice she had on her 4th title win attire

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      Nice match! Mickie looked as great as always! Her first win since moving to RAW.

    • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

      This match was so good.

      Mickie got them reactions and Emma’s heel moveset is vicious.

      Underrated Queens

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Very surprised they took out Santana and Kay Lee Ray but this looks great! Can’t wait to see it.

    Nonetheless, I am also surprised at the way the structured the matches. I have seen the brackets for the tournament and from the looks of it, only one of Kairi, Candice, Storm and Kai can be in the finals and it will likely be Kairi. Her potential opponents would be Serena Deeb, Mia Yim and Mercedes Martinez or Abbey.
    Great stuff!

    • This is not in order, they’re gonna mix them up.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Oh okay, nice to know.

  • Gato_wiska

    I heard some of these women will go straight to main roster. I hope Summer Rae will get a story line because she is in trouble.

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      I doubt any of them are going to main roster so soon NXT maybe

    • Exotic

      Ew maybe the the winner and Santana/Piper/Renee/Toni being signed to NXT but we don’t need more signings.
      Serena should be rehired and be sent to the MR straight away – similar to what happened to Brian Kendrick.

  • OMG! Santan Garrett eliminated very soon, so sad, also Kay Lee Ray. But can’t wait to see how the matches came alive.

  • Wicked Bliss

    What will the winner get? TJ became the CW champion while there is no womens championship vacant.

    • Izzy4lw

      Signed. And probably pushed to the moon and back. Or, maybe the winner will completely forego NXT and appear straight on the main roster to be inserted into a title program?

      • Danny?

        If they want more casual viewers to go back and watch the tournament then i think a title program on the main roster is the way to go as it may force more people to go and watch the tournament to see more from the winner and how they got to the main roster.

  • Wicked Bliss

    I think they eliminated those who dont want to sign in WWE and just came to compete.

    • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

      That makes sense

  • Aye Mate

    When are the episodes available for viewing?

    • Bryskers

      … August 28th :/

      • Aye Mate

        Shit.

        • Bryskers

          Yep D:

          • Calvin McCreary

            Screw that, someone bootleg that shindig with phones and upload a playlist.

  • chrissi calvert

    They put Viper (Piper) through over KLR, Jazzy and Santana? Looks like Kairi is winning this tournament

  • Ev???

    KLR and Santana queens shoudlve advanced over Lacey and sugehit and that’s the tea

  • Kevin Werleman

    Everyone needs to remember, they can’t all be throw away matches. Remember, Johnny Gargano vs Tomasso Ciampa was also booked in the first round of the CWC. To give each episode a “Main Event” like feel too it. That’s what I get behind the Tessa Blanchard vs. Kairi Sane booking, similar to Ciampa vs Garganno IMO. Al though I feel Marit Belle vs. Rachael Ellering is probably the weaker of the 4 matches, I think Tessa vs Kairi and Santana vs. Piper are going to be the stand outs of the round 1 matches for sure and both Tessa and Santana will come off looking great, same could be said about Jazzy Gabert.

    Still meh on Bianca going over Sage because Bianca, Reina and Vanessa are probably the worst 3 of all the women showcased, but oh well, they kind of want to push some of their home grown talent and guess Bianca and Lacey it will be.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Um Marti sucks.

      • Kevin Werleman

        I won’t say she sucks, sucks but not the strongest performer of the batch and certainly not someone I’d want headlining one of the episodes. Tessa vs. Sanne, Abby vs. Jazzy and Santana vs. Niven have caliber appeal, felt Marti vs Rachael didn’t have that same caliber feel as those other matches did. I found it odd placing but oh well. I expect the other three to be great matches though.

    • Mr. Giem

      Wouldn’t be surprised if they change the order of the matches from the third episode. Dakota vs. Kavita or Candice vs. Renee sound a lot more like a main event than Rachelle vs. Marti.

    I’m not surprised about the early outs. I feel it was based on them having bookings other places. Let’s just be happy each person got showcased! The next set of tapings tonight are going to be amazing! Yim vs Martinez is going to be breakout match! I can’t wait to enjoy this next month

  • MK126

    So how does it work with the ones who lose? Are they allowed to take bookings now or do they have to wait for their episodes to air?

    • Izzy4lw

      I’d assume they’re allowed to take bookings because the tournament hasn’t aired yet, they just aren’t allowed to take bookings the week leading up to the tournament airing?

  • Danny?

    I can’t believe Kay Lee Ray and Santana Garrett are out first round! I really wanted to see more from them in the tournament cause I know they could have put on some fantastic matches. Still happy to see Kairi, Candice, Mercedes & Mia are all through, I’m rooting for one of them to win this whole thing.

  • Vince Martin

    After the MYC ends, can we keep them all pleaseeeee

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    I’m not reading the spoilers this time around. Are these episodes already on the WWE Network? I believed there were going to be ready for August. This is the only time, I want to see a show without knowing the winners so that I can get some exciment seeing matches. Please someone tell me if I can already see this in the network.

  • BlaamLaambb

    ugh i don’t want kairi sane to win, she’s already overrated for me

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    I screamed hearing the result of Bianca and Sage. They better not try to book her as a powerhouse after that cause… she’s probably going to be the next Nia but with a title.

  • Kiana Taylor
  • John Finnie

    Mickie vs Emma is online’ very good chemisty & MJ got the best reaction since forever……is it a year ago MJ returned to wwe?? Nxt?? MJ wore her Attire she won her 4th title from beth

  • Rosanna

    So question? How does this Mae Young Classic work? Because from my understanding the person who wins gets a contract to the smackdown brand and gets a shot at the NXT women’s championship. So what’s the point of having the opportunity to face Asuka if you’re obviously not going to win because you’re going to smackdown.

    • conan_kun

      How do you know the winner going to Smackdown.

      • Rosanna

        Because that’s been the plan. They’ve literally said the final two people have the last match on smackdown and gets a contract.

        • Super Mateo

          It’s not on SD. It’s immediately after SD on the WWE Network, when 205 Live would normally be on.

  • ralfikh

    Most of this women might got signed after this tournament right?
    I hope wwe know how to use them to their fullest.
    Please no more half half push otherwise they gonna kill somebody momentum.

  • ralfikh

    They should create a championship belt for this tournament.
    Atleast they have something to gain after winning the tournament.
    If CWC got their own belts and show so can this mae young classic womens.
    It always hard for them to give the women the same treat as the men.
    There got tons of male championship in wwe+nxt & how many does the women have? 3 ! 1 for each brands. So fair right?

    • Izzy4lw

      I just wonder where they would defend it? would it be a brand specific championship? would they be a floating champion between the shows like the Divas title or Womens title used to be? Because it’s another singles belt, I dont know where it would fit – as is, the NXT title, SD women’s/Raw Womens title are the big titles on each brand, so this title would feel like the IC title to the WWE title – and with this calibre of talent, I wouldn’t want them to win a second rate belt.

      I’d prefer if the winner gets to skip NXT, pick the brand she wants to go to, and is guaranteed a title program upon debut. That to me would be more intriguing then giving someone a belt and figuring out what to do with it later.

      • MK126

        Or they can do it like the UK belt and have it be defended outside of WWE programming

      • ralfikh

        Agree. But it wont hurt to have another title for a new brand (only women) for women that are barely use or b4 make the NXT or main roster. Just to make it like a FCW or training centre to polish skills b4 ready to make it. It’ll be tons of women that will barely use in the future. This place will be perfect for those who need to polish their craft.
        We dont want another sloppy match on NXT taping do we?
        Some1 like Liv Morgan & Aliyah could benefit from this imo.
        If the men can have 2ndary title im sure the women could atleast have 1 for their division.

    • Gato_wiska

      raw it has 3 hours.

      • ralfikh

        Maybe replace Main Event for Mae Young( women wrestling) for once let the women have their own show for 1 day.

  • Vito

    im so mad to see mart belle, kay lee ray, taynara, and especially santana out so early….. wtf.. wwe goofed

        • ?BurningUpInsideOfUs?

          She’s sloppy

  • Ms. Money In The Back

    Nakamura and Bliss was ringside for main event as well

        I wonder how the girls feel that are in the tournament knowing they’re gonna lose in the first round

        • Danny?

          I think a lot of the girls will be happy with the exposure they got at least. If they don’t get signed by WWE then their booking fee for the indies will surely go up.

    • CuCelchy

      Hope Ronda beat they ass

  • Vince Martin

    Ok i’m pissed how WWE is pushing Shayna Baszler when clearly it’s only because she’s famous in MMA. KLR or Mia Yim should’ve advanced
