The Mae Young Classic is in the rear view mirror and now we can focus on next year’s Mae Young Classic. Yes, you heard me right. WWE is going to apparently keep doing these tournaments due to the huge success of the inaugural year’s end result.
Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live that Kairi Sane might not be winning the NXT Women’s Championship or else they would have made the final match for the title. He also said there’s word WWE is going to plan a multi-woman match for the vacant title as well.
Some people said they were disappointed Shayna Baszler’s loss didn’t result in some kind of Horsewomen standoff, but Alvarez cleared things up a little while addressing some other key bits of information of what could happen next. He also gave a nice little detail about possible plans to keep the Mae Young Classic going.
“Apparently the story is they’re going to do something with the Horsewomen, I don’t know when it’s gonna be. But I guess last week they decided we could shoot an angle anytime and we’ve done this entire thing — the finale thirty minutes we’re just gonna make the entire finale about Kairi and so they did and now maybe they’ll shoot an angle at No Mercy because Ronda lives in LA and the show is in LA so it’s possible that they’re going to do it there. May do something in NXT, who knows?”
“There is an NXT taping tomorrow where Kairi is going to debut and probably another girl from the Mae Young Classic is gonna debut. And the latest I’ve heard and please don’t write this as a certainty because it’s not but next summer. I know everyone’s been talking about a tag team deal but they may do another Mae Young Classic next summer. That seems to be the working idea right now.”
That is a lot of news to take in at once. But the plans for Kairi Sane to win the NXT Championship might take some time, Shayna Baszler wasn’t scheduled to win the Mae Young Classic either. But she might get a shot next year if plans stay the same.
