Triple H Reveals Dates And Official Name For Upcoming WWE Women's Tournament

We've known for a while that WWE is planning a Women's Tournament this summer, similar to the Cruiserweight Classic that aired on the network last year, but we didn't know exactly when and we didn't know what it would be called.

Until now.

Triple H took to Twitter today to reveal all the details.

It will be taped on July 13th and 14th at Full Sail University, the site of NXT and The CWC.

And yes, it's named after Mae Young, the grandmother of Women's Wrestling, unfortunately probably best remembered for giving birth to a hand in a segment on Raw during the Attitude Era.

They're probably not naming the tournament after her because of that, though. You can watch a tribute to her amazing career at the top of the page.
