Two Huge Semifinal Matches Announced for Next Week’s Mae Young Classic Finale
And then there were four…
We started with 32 of the greatest women’s wrestlers from all around the world, and over the course of the last six weeks have narrowed the playing field down to just four remaining world-class superstars, each looking to win the 2018 Mae Young Classic.
Both semifinal matches will take place next Wednesday night on the WWE Network in the show’s usual timeslot, airing immediately after WWE NXT. The winners will advance to next weekend’s highly anticipated all-women’s pay-per-view event WWE Evolution, where they will battle it out in the tournament finals.
In the first of two huge matches, the Australian powerhouse Rhea Ripley will step into the ring with perhaps the greatest women’s wrestler on the planet today – the artist of the skies, Io Shirai. Rhea advanced to the semifinal round as a result of Tegan Nox being ruled out with a serious knee injury, so the young superstar will have a lot to prove if she’s looking to advance over a true Japanese sensation.
And in the main event, the UK’s Toni Storm – who many consider the frontrunner to win the entire Mae Young Classic – will face off in greatest challenge yet; and that’s definitely saying something. After dispatching of Mia Yim in the quarterfinal line in an excellent bout, Storm will have to move past the living legend Meiko Satomura, who has more experience than anyone in the tournament by more than a decade.
