Nine of the competitors have been revealed, and today we learned who will be calling the action, but now we finally know when we'll all actually be able to see it.
The first-ever all female tournament in WWE History, the Mae Young Classic, will be taped at Full Sail Arena on July 13-14, but WWE Network audiences won't be able to see the episodes until Aug 28.
That's when the first four episodes of the tournament will be released to the Network, with the next four coming on September 4th. It looks like WWE is betting on wrestling fans binge-watching the content, because a Live Finale is planned for September 12 at 10 pm est, broadcast on the Network from Las Vegas, Nevada. An interesting note: WWE SmackDown Live is also in Las Vegas on September 12, so it's likely that the finals of the Mae Young Classic will be taking 205 Live's timeslot, if only for one nght.
Here is what the WWE posted on their website:
WWE has announced that the first-ever Mae Young Classic women’s tournament will stream exclusively on WWE Network, starting Monday, Aug. 28, with the first four episodes available on demand. Episodes five through eight will be available on demand on Monday, Sept. 4. The final match will stream live from Las Vegas on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 10 p.m. ET.
