Jim Ross has confirmed the news that was first reported last week by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Ross confirmed on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio that he will be calling the action for the upcoming WWE Women’s Tournament. The tournament will include independent wrestlers from around the world and will air exclusively on the WWE Network.
There has been talk of releasing all of the shows at once (similar to how Netflix releases an entire season of a show on the same day) and airing the finals live in September.
