Another name added to the field.
Yesterday it was announced that former WWE Divas Champion Celeste Bonin or better known as "Kaitlyn" will be the first entrant into the Mae Young Classic II. The tournament will commence on August 8th at Full Sail University and will pick back up the following day on August 9th. The only name that has officially been announced for the tournament was Kaitlyn but an Australian news outlet has revealed the name of another competitor who will be in the tournament.
Rhea confirmed the news by noting that she has one month left to get as jacked as possible.
Rhea Ripley has made a number of appearances for the NXT brand. She competed in a Women's Battle Royal last October to determine a #1 contender for the NXT Women's Championship. Rhea has also been working the NXT house show circuit with her last match for the brand being last month in Largo, FL where she was involved in a Triple-Threat match along with Nikki Cross and Dakota Kai. The 21-year old competed in last year's inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament as well and made it to the second round until she was bounced by Dakota Kai. Ripley will be looking to improve in her second outing in the M.Y.C. as she confirmed that she will be in the tourney.
