WWE Planning Women’s Tournament For Early 2017

After the success of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic saw it become one of the WWE Network’s most-watched shows, and also led to the return of the Cruiserweight Division on Raw, as well as the recently-announced Live 205 show on Tuesdays after Smackdown, there were rumors that WWE would be trying the same idea again, this time using female wrestlers, both contracted and independent, in a massive tournament to air on WWE Network. It seems those plans are coming to fruition as early as this January, with reports that WWE has been telling some well-known female wrestlers to keep dates open in early 2017 if they want to be a part of the show. It’s likely that recent news that WWE is on the verge of signing top Japanese stars Kairi Hojo and Io Shirai could be the start of them locking up some big names for the tournament.

Given how well WWE pulled off the Cruiserweight Classic, we can’t wait to see what they come up with for a Women’s tournament, and who they might bring in to fill spots in the field!
