    I just noticed the interesting schedule they have for the Mae Young Classic. It looks like they are going to do similar to what they did with the Cruiserweight Classic. I read before that they were going to tape the tournament on July 13 and July 14 at Full Sail but then I realized that they surely won't be taping eight episodes in two nights. That would be a bit extreme for the competitors, I would think.

    Anyways, the first four episodes of the tournament will become available on the WWE Network on Monday, August 28. Then episodes five through eight will be available the following week on Monday, September 4. The Finals of the Mae Young Classic will then air live on the WWE Network the following week on Tuesday, September 12 at 10/9c (which is the spot 205 Live is usually in) in Las Vegas.

    I'm actually relieved that the Finals will be a live special since I was worried about avoiding spoilers after they do the tapings.

    **Sigh**, live is all and good but right in the spot 205Live is in after SmackDown is finished? So people will actually be leaving before the finals kick off. Really a shame because I'm sure the tournament will be awesome.

    Right now, the September 12 episode of SmackDown will be in Anaheim (according to Google) while the Finals are going to take place live in Las Vegas. It does make me wonder though, would WWE book a venue just for the Finals? Seems odd.

    Oh, alright. Well in that case, I take my statement back.

    WWE is going to do a "Parade of Champions" for the Mae Young Classic on July 13. It will air on Facebook Live and YouTube and will feature all 32 participants in the tournament.

    EDIT - All 32 participants have been confirmed for the Mae Young Classic.

    The full first round has also been taped, so be careful when looking around as there will be spoilers galore.

    Yep. I'm doing my best to avoid spoilers. It's going to be tough to do since there's such a large gap between now and August 28.

    I only watched the final but thought it was a good match, only downside was listening to Lita on commentary :lol:

    I wasn't expecting to see Kong there! Come on WWE, one more run please :inlove:

    I wasn't overly impressed with the Finals to be honest. My favorite matches happened earlier in the tournament.
