Yesterday WWE confirmed five more participants for the Mae Young Classic II. Since then, however, one name has been scrubbed from the announcement.
All mentions of Crystal in the article have been removed.
In the article, WWE referred to Crystal as a “breakout star from Southeast Asia’s burgeoning wrestling scene.”
This is what the company previously said about her: Twenty-four-year-old Crystal, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Philippine Wrestling,” has competed throughout Southeast Asia, including in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, since making her debut in February 2016. Sporting a wrestling ring tattoo on her arm, Crystal developed a love for sports-entertainment in her youth when she would watch WWE with her grandmother. A highflyer inside the squared circle, she was discovered by WWE officials during a scouting trip to the region in 2017.
No word yet on why she has been removed. We’ll keep you updated on this story.
So far competitors for the MYC II include:
- Mercedes Martinez
- Mia Yim
- Kavita Devi
- Killer Kelly
- Deonna Purrazzo
- Tegan Knox
- Jessica Elaban
- Reina González
- Rhea Ripley
- Io Shirai
- Nicole Matthews
- Kacy Catanzaro
