As noted, WWE will be going forward with the women’s tournament, which will be similar to the Cruiserweight Classic. The show will be taped in either January or March. Some talents have been told that the show will be taped in January and some talents have been told it will be taped in March. Just like the Cruiserweight Classic, the yet-to-be-named women’s tournament will air on the WWE Network.
The plan is to tape the tournament in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. According to PWinsider.com, WWE is interested in Nixon Newell, Heidi Lovelace, Kimber Lee, Deonna Purrazzo and Rachael Ellering.
It’s possible that WWE uses Tessa Blanchard and Santana Garrett as both of them have appeared on NXT TV to put over contracted talent.
