  • WWE Women's Tournament Coming Summer 2017 (Spoiler-Free Thread)



    They've just announced that it's coming to the Network this summer at their business summit. All three women's champions there. Very cool.

    Confirmed by Triple H: 32 women from 17 countries.

    For the first time in WWE history, 32 of the top female competitors from around the world will participate in a tournament this summer on WWE Network.

    The long-rumored tournament was confirmed today as part of “WWE Reimagined,” a presentation held at a business partner summit in Orlando, Fla., during WrestleMania Week.


    Competitors from 17 countries are expected to participate in the tournament, underscoring the breadth and international diversity of women’s wrestling.


    Raw Women’s Champion Bayley, SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss and undefeated NXT Women’s Champion Asuka – all of whom are slated for title defenses this weekend – were on hand to break the big news with Paul "Triple H" Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative, and Stephanie McMahon, Chief Brand Officer. The tournament marks a new milestone for WWE’s ongoing Women’s Evolution.


    "Building on our Women's division, it gives us great pleasure to share in announcing what's next for WWE," said Bayley. "For the first time ever, this summer, WWE will feature a Women's Tournament."


    “I speak on behalf of all of us, not just the champions standing before you today, but the entire Women's division. It's truly an honor to be part of another significant movement in WWE history,” Bliss said.


    After speaking to the audience in Japanese, Asuka said in English, "I am proud to be part of the Women's Evolution, representing Japan and WWE."


    The tournament comes on the heels of other successful WWE Network tournaments, such as last year’s Cruiserweight Classic, which focused on competitors 205 pounds and lighter, and January’s United Kingdom Championship Tournament, which spotlighted the U.K.’s toughest grapplers.

    Super excited. So curious who gets brought in for this.
    Flowers gathered in the morning,
    Afternoon they blossom on,
    Still are withered by the evening:
    You can be me when I'm gone.

        i wouldn't be surprised if they bring back some old faces to be part of the tournament, like they did with the crusierweight with Tajiri & Brian Kendrick

                I imagine there are some diamonds in the rough from countries like Mexico, India, Korea, Russia that would be great adds.

                I imagine Aksana might be brought back just for this if they want a Lithuania rep. She left on good terms with the company. Now whether the purists want to see her is another story.

                    I would love to see Aksana back. This could be the perfect way to bring Ivelisse back aswell. That girl has SmackDown written all over her.

                        Summer's on the banner, so surely she'll go far right?

                        ...

                        <_< I know.

                            Why would anyone want Aksana in a tourney supposedly showcasing the best female talent in the world, when she was horrible when she was wrestling and hasn't shown any interest in wrestling since leaving ? Even Lita seems like an odd fit to be honest, she hasn't wrestled consistently (or at all idk) in over a decade , and was never a top tier wrestler in the first place .

                            It's weird , whenever WWE has tourney like this for male talents people want them to use the best tip tier talent available . Now that it's time for one for female talents people are arguing for random past divas, and people who haven't wrestled in forever
