9/5 Episode 1:

*Tegan Nox vs. Zatara.

- Killer Kelly vs. Meiko Satomura.

9/12 Episode 2:

*Deonna Purazzo vs. Priscilla Kelly.
*Aerial Monroe vs. Zeuxis.
*Kacy Catanzaro vs. Reina Gonzalez.
*Ashley (Madison) Rayne vs. Mercedes Martinez.

9/19 Episode 3:

*Kaitlyn vs. Kavita Devi.
*Toni Storm def. Jinny.
*Xia Li vs. Karen Q.
*Alysin Kay (Sienna) vs. Mia Yim.

9/26 Episode 4:

*Hiroyo Matsumoto vs. Rachel Evers.
*Taynara Conti vs. Jessie Elaban.
*Isla Dawn vs. Nicole Matthews.
*Io Shirai vs. Xia Brookside.

 The announcing team for the Mae Young Classic tournament will be Michael Cole, Renee Young and Beth Phoenix, replacing last year's team of Jim Ross and Lita.

 Mauro Ranallo will be hosting Braketology segments of the tournament, including a special breaking down the tournament competitors.

Vanessa Kraven has been around NXT and might have done last year's Mae Young Classic.

Deonna Purazzo has done NXT, ROH, and Impact extensively and was just signed, so expect her to do well.

Madison Rayne of course is the biggest American name from her years in Impact.

Mercedes Martinez is a long, long, long time indy standout from SHIMMER and all the other women's indy companies and was in the Mae Young Classic last year.

Kaitlyn is the former WWE Diva from years ago (and A.J. Lee's best friend) making her comeback.

Toni Storm is part of NXT UK and was in last year's Classic.

Karen Q was in ROH's women's title tournament earlier this year.

Alysin Kay is Impact's Sienna and a 2-time Impact and 1-time GFW Women's champ.

Mia Yim is also from Impact and ROH and I think did last year's Mae Young Classic.

Rachel Evers is Paul Ellering's daughter who has done some NXT jobs before.

Nicole Matthews is another indy standout from SHIMMER and the like.

Io Shirai and Hiroyo Matsumoto are the tournament favorites from STARDOM, and Shirai in particular is noted as one of the best female workers in the world.

Don't know the others. 

My prediction is that Toni Storm gets the big push for synergy with NXT UK and beats Io Shirai in the finals.  It helps that Storm is beautiful in addition to being able to work.  Just a guess, I have read zero spoilers.

I think Kacy Catanzaro is going to go far in this tournament - she's the chick that was kicking ass on American Ninja Warrior and she has a huge mainstream following. I have no idea if she can wrestle, but I doubt HHH would expose her in this tournament to job out in a minute or two when they signed her 100% because of her name and reputation.

She's cute as hell too.

Reports that Tegan Knox has been seriously injured during the tournament while attempting a suicide dive. She apparently hurt her knee or leg and the ref flashed the "X" and trainers came out to look at it. She begged them to let her continue and actually talked them into re-starting the match. But after a minute or two she couldn't go on and the ref stopped it. Curious that they never went for an improvised finish even after the re-start.  It will be interesting to see how/if they edit that together for TV. I'm not sure if she was supposed to win the match or not, but I can imagine her frustration getting hurt during her big opportunity. She was supposedly very upset.

Broken leg, apparently. Shame, she's cute.

Particularly bad luck as she missed the last one through injury.

Her wiki page says she is 5’ tall isn’t that almost too short to hit the top rope? Is she going to hit the middle rope like the midgets errr short stature wrestlers? Or is she going to have a gimmick like Johnny valentine and just not hit the ropes?

My money is on Meiko Satumura and Io Shirai. Saw a few matches between them from Japan and I thought they were gonna kill each other.
