With the second edition of the Mae Young Classic just around the corner, WWE continues to confirm new talent. On this occasion, the McMahon company has announced Tegan Nox, Deonna Purrazzo, Jessica Elaban and Reina Gonzalez as competitors that promise to exceed the expectations of fans. Some of them, as has been previously confirmed have been the latest recruit to the WWE Performance Center.
“The Girl with the Brilliant Wizard” Tegan Nox (previously known as Steffanie Newell or Nixon Newell) will finally make her long-awaited debut on WWE Network. The wrestler born in Welsh Valleys (Wales) and 23 years old came to WWE last summer after being one of the best competitors in the British scene. However, his WWE career would be affected by a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament while training at the Performance Center for his debut in the first edition of the Mae Young Classic. After 10 months out of the action, Nox started competing in the live events of NXT and now will prove to have the fortune in this tournament.
The American Jessica Elaban also points to the list of competitors to the tournament. This NXT rookie who arrived in May 2018 after being a university volleyball player will try to demonstrate to the Mae Young Classic fans everything she has learned from her coaches in the Performance Center. Elaban has competed as a soccer player, basketball player or even a dancer before reaching WWE but her current athletic will seek to take her to the end of the competitive quadrant.
Finally, no less important, we find the strength of Reina González, daughter of the legendary fighter Ricky “Desperado” González. Reina competed in the basketball team of Sam Houston State University shortly before being recruited in the Performance Center in October 2016. However, González has the experience of having competed in this tournament, after being eliminated in the first round against Nicole Savoy
The Tapings of the second edition of the Mae Young Classic tournament will take place on August 8 and 9, 2018 at the Full Sail University in Orlando (Florida). Some of the competitors announced to date are Jinny, Kacy Catanzaro, Nicole Matthews, Rhea Ripley, Vernice Gabriel and Kaitlyn, who returns to WWE after four years of absence.
