A few of WWE’s finest are currently sitting on the sidelines due to injury, but it looks like at least one Superstar could be returning to action soon.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that former Divas Champion Alicia Fox was officially cleared to return on June 18th.
Fox has been backstage at Raw recently, but she hasn’t appeared on WWE programming since before the women’s Royal Rumble match in January. The Raw Superstar reportedly broke her tailbone while rehearsing for the match.
Today WWE confirmed that the 2018 Mae Young Classic will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 8, and Thursday, Aug. 9, at Full Sail Live in Orlando, Florida. Tickets will be available at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT via www.nxttickets.com.
The tournament will feature 32 competitors from 12 countries, and it will air on the WWE Network this summer.
“We are thrilled to once again present the Mae Young Classic and provide a global showcase for 32 of the top female talent from around the world,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “Last year’s event was a significant milestone in WWE’s Women’s Evolution, and I am confident this year’s event will break even more barriers.”
