    Sounds about right.

    WWE needs a high flyer to win this tourney and rocket to the roster. They have no real high flying females in the company. I mean Charlotte's moonsault is considered the "Oooh and ahhh" move for the ladies.

    A high flyer would be nice.

    How many high flying moves does one need to be consider a high flyer. Lita was consider a high flyer by many but only really did two main ones: Moonsault & Litacanrana. Sasha has a few in her arsenal like the Frog Splash, Diving Knees, Suicude Dives, and etc.

    Well let me reiterate:

    I don't think the girls on the roster, NXT or WWE can't do high flying moves but rather are clamped up by the WWE to not do it, especially when on the work schedule with house shows etc. that they happen to be on but it is more so wanting to see the WWE push a female and bill them as a high flyer ala Jeff Hardy or something which they haven't and probably won't do with Banks.

    I would like the winner of this to be something different than what the current girls offer, that's all really.

    Hojo is basically what you are looking for. I assume she will not be the only Stardom girl to appear. Almost all the girls fly now. But outside of WWE, girls tend to be more technical as that is what sells.

    Shimmer is also happening the Saturday and Sunday (8th & 9th) before the tournament dates (13th & 14th) in July. I imagine some of the foreign shimmer roster will be apart of this tournament.

    This is my biggest takeaway. Seemed like they were having financial trouble and their future was up in the air. I'm sure that's still the case. Does kinda suck we'll probably never see any non-WM Weekend shows since the DVDs are so far behind...

    I think it's three times a year. That includes the live wrestlmania weekend show. Volume 100 is said to take place in the fall. Dvds are way behind and the preorder for volumes 76-79 just became available. Volume 91 is the one that just happened during mania weekend.

    Other than that, Shine is also having shows on the same days as the tournament (13th & 14th of July). And it's a 16 woman tournament for a secondary title. These shows were announced after the possible dates of the wwe women's tournament.

    Good chance of Shirai being in the tourney, no?

    I would assume so. Why would they not use one of the top women in the world?

    And SHIMMER was always behind on releases. My guess is they use the money from one set of shows releases to fund the next live shows and are kind of living cycle to cycle if not losing money now. 100 shows over 12 years though is freaking impressive. I would easily credit DP with the revival of women's wrestling.

    She's my pick if she's in it (her or Io).

    The other person I'm hoping makes the roster cut (that I don't think has been mentioned yet) is Nicole Matthews.

    I just want Shirai vs Hojo to occur during this. These two killed each other in Stardom and can easily steal any show they are paired on.

    Wondering if this tournament will now be the Asuka Invitational since the streak remains intact.

    Yeah I really want her to enter it to defend her title. Get Asuka vs Shirai or other big joshi names in WWE.

    I'm thinking, more along the line, that the winner of the tournament will get a title shot.
