The tournament field for the Mae Young Classic is taking shape, and now, so is the commentary team.
WWE has just announced that Jim Ross will be joined by fellow WWE Hall of Famer Lita on the commentator desk for the upcoming Women's Tournament.
Jim Ross recently made a return to WWE after being away for several years. He called the main event of WrestleMania 33, which saw Roman Reigns retire The Undertaker, as well as the WWE UK Special in May and the UK Championship match at NXT Takeover Chicago.
Lita, meanwhile, was a mainstay on WWE Kickoff Shows for a while, before being removed from those duties late last year.
JR commented on the announcement on his blog today.
"Saw on Twitter @MaeYoungClassic that yours truly would officially broadcasting with @AmyDumas the upcoming, global women's tournament for @WWE that will air on the @WWENetwork. I'm honored to be assigned this event with WWE HOFER Amy Dumas aka Lita and to help advance the development of women's wrestling in the business.
If you expect Amy and I to do all we can to kick some serious ass on these broadcasts, then you would be correct!"
