2018 Mae Young Classic Will Include Hiroyo Matsumoto, Aerial Monroe, and Vanessa Kraven

The Mae Young Classic is filling up.

27 of the 32 competitors in the 2018 Mae Young Classic have been named since Wednesday's announcement of three more wrestlers who are Hiroyo Matsumoto, Aerial Monroe, and Vanessa Kraven.

Matsumoto has been wrestling well over a decade and has competed in Japan for promotions like SHINE and STARDOM but she has experience in the United States with promotions like SHIMMER as recently as 2017.

Monroe is an independent wrestler who has worked for Major League Wrestling, SHINE, SHIMMER, RISE and WWN.

The power-house Kraven has wrestled all over the world since her debut in 2004.

The following are excerpts from the WWE.com introductions to all three wrestlers.

Popular Japanese wrestler Hiroyo Matsumoto (pictured above) — who is alternatively known as “Lady Destroyer” and “Lady Godzilla” — made her professional debut in July 2006. Ranked the 25th best women’s wrestler in the world in 2017 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated

Aerial Monroe of Clearwater, Fla., enters the tournament with three years of experience. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Monroe trained for the ring under Cedric Alexander and southern wrestling legend George South and has competed throughout the U.S. independent scene.

Rounding out the new set of competitors is Montreal’s Vanessa Kraven. Standing 6-foot-2, “The Mountain” is likely to be one of the Classic’s most intimidating and mysterious grapplers. The pigtailed pugilist has dominated competition for more than 14 years.

Fightful Wrestling will be covering the Mae Young Classic as it films next week and when the matches air. The finals match will be at WWE Evolution on October 28th.
