During the Raw After WrestleMania, WWE announced that there would be another Mae Young Classic in 2018. The first one was a 32-woman tournament featuring wrestlers from the indies and around the world. Like a lot of people, my first reaction to that news was “Cool, but who’s going to be in it?” Being as fond of unwarranted speculation as any wrestling fan, I’ve come up with some ideas about who might show up, and who I’d really like to see.
I didn’t include anyone who was in the tournament last year, but I certainly wouldn’t object to return appearances by Tessa Blanchard, Nicole Savoy, Mercedes Martinez, Mia Yim, Piper Niven, or Toni Storm. I also left out anyone who has a current contract with Impact, as I’m sure WWE will have to, which is a shame because Su Yung, Taya, or Rosemary would be amazing gets for the tournament if it was possible.
With those caveats out of the way, here are 15 wrestlers who could be great additions to the Second Annual Mae Young Classic.
