We now know the taping dates for the second installment of the Mae Young Classic tournament.
Last year’s tournament took place in the summer and was taped at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. It’s truly a special tournament and similar to the Cruiserweight Classic. The name of the event is in honor of the late WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young.
If you recall, the Cruiserweight Classic was a tournament produced by WWE wherein all participants were billed at a weight of 205 lbs or less to determine the first Cruiserweight Champion.
The sports entertainment company held the finals of last year’s tournament on September 12th from the SmackDown TV event in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Thomas and Mack Center. Kairi Sane beat Shayna Baszler in the finals to win the tournament.
Bryan Alvarez revealed during Wrestling Observer Live on Wednesday that the taping dates for the upcoming tournament on August 7th and 8th at Full Sail University. As of this writing, there’s no word yet on when the first-round matches will air on the WWE Network or when the finals will take place.
