Stephanie McMahon made the announcement that the women of WWE would be center stage as part of the first ever all-women’s pay-per-view called Evolution, and since the Mae Young Classic has been taped over the past few days, the final has already been confirmed and will take place at the event.
Thirty-two of the best female wrestlers from all over the world competed for the right to be crowned just the second Mae Young Classic winner and now the final will take place on October 28th.
According to WrestlingInc, the two women who will be part of the final will be Toni Storm and Io Shirai, both of which were rumored to be part of the final a few weeks ago since they were heavy favorites heading into the tournament.
Storm was part of the first-ever Mae Young Classic last summer but was knocked out of the competition by eventual winner Kairi Sane.
The star had quite an impressive route to the finals over the past few days and will now face one of the favorites to win the tournament in the final.
Of course, the show didn’t go without issues since Welsh star Tegan Nox was injured in the quarterfinals as part of her match with Rhea Ripley.
There is still no update on Nox’s current condition, but it was reported by Triple H that the star had suffered a broken leg when a dive to the outside saw her land awkwardly.
The Mae Young Classic will air on the WWE Network from September 5th until October 28th and much like this year’s Mixed Match Challenge, it will be a single elimination format with each match being shown on Wednesday night following NXT.
