WWE has just revealed yet another batch of names who will be taking part in the Mae Young Classic tournament next month. Most of the tournament will be taped from Full Sail University on August 8th and August 9th, but it was recently announced on Raw that the finals of the tournament will be taking place at the all-female Evolution pay-per-view this October. Names such as Kaitlyn, Rhea Ripley, Deonna Purrazzo, Io Shirai, and Mercedes Martinez have all been confirmed to participate in this year’s tournament, but the four competitors who were just announced for the Mae Young Classic should surely prove to bring a diverse and unique dynamic when the tournament takes place in a few weeks.

Zeuxis – This masked Luchador has been competing in the ring for over a decade. She is a 29-year-old wrestler from Puerto Rico who has mostly made a name for herself in CMLL down in Mexico, and she has also competed for Mexican promotions AAA and The Crash in the past. She is the only masked wrestler announced for the tournament thus far.
Karen Q – An young, energetic, and high-flying competitor who has competed in Women’s Wrestling Revolution, Beyond Wrestling, Game Changer Wrestling, Victory Pro Wrestling, and Ring of Honor over the course of her career. She will be competing in WWE for the first time ever when she takes part in the Mae Young Classic tournament on August 8th and 9th.
Isla Dawn – At only 24-years-old, Dawn has already been building up her reputation on the United Kingdom independent wrestling scene. The Scottish wrestler recently competed on WWE’s United Kingdom Championship Tournament special on the WWE Network when she (along with fellow future Mae Young Classic competitor Killer Kelly) lost a Triple Threat match to Toni Storm.
Lacey Lane – This young Lucha Libre star was trained by WWE Hall of Famers The Dudley Boys. After competing on the independent circuit, WWE announced that they had signed her to an NXT contract earlier this year. Her appearances in the Mae Young Classic will officially mark her first televised matches in a WWE ring.
