WWE added Madison Rayne and some less experienced wrestlers to the Mae Young Classic.
WWE has added 24 names to the list of 32 competitors that will be hoping to win the 2018 Mae Young Classic. On Monday, one of those names was revealed to be former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne who WWE is referring to as "Ashley Rayne."
Rayne has never competed under the WWE umbrella. As of this writing, Rayne is still scheduled to appear at All In after she and Maxwell Jacob Friedman won a tag team match to earn the spot.

Also added to the list were two wrestlers with considerably less experience than Rayne. 21 year old Priscilla Kelly has been in professional wrestling for a few years and has competed for a lot of promotions but most predominately she has wrestled for SHINE.
19 year old Xia Brookside has been wrestling nearly as long as Priscilla Kelly and has wrestled for promotions like RISE and STARDOM.
The Mae Young Classic will be filming next week and will be aired at a later date. The finals will take place live on WWE Evolution which is the first all women pay-per-view in WWE history.
