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.
