The May Young Classic Thread

Post by endless » Fri Jun 30, 2017 10:32 am

Since this is quickly approaching, it should probably have it's own thread.

Kairi Hojo becomes Kairi Sane: https://twitter.com/WWE/status/880749894297731072


The May Young Classic is shaping up to be a WWE Developmental Vs Stardom Alumni tournament:

* Kairi Hojo
* Evie
* Nixon Newell
* Viper
* Alpha Female
* Tessa Blanchard
* Toni Storm

Princesa Sugehit is the only name announced so far that wasn’t a part of Stardom at some point and isn’t signed to NXT. And she only seems to be in it as a favor to Sarah Stock. That’s a little disappointing because WWE has the resources to pull together a tournament with the very best women in the world, or at least women from many different promotions. Instead they just fired up Stardom World and called it a day.

Congratulations WWE fans, you finally get to sample Stardom. I’m hoping for a Kairi Vs Evie or Kairi Vs Nixon Newell final.

A preview of Kairi Sane's entrance:



It's not quiet as elaborate as her Stardom entrance, but I'm glad that they kept it basically the same in spirit.

KAIRI HOJO! If I can't see Kellie Skater in NXT/WWE, I'm glad I'll get to see Kairi.

Glad I avoided the results because I kinda enjoyed the first episode of this. I love JR, but Mauro commentating would have just been lovely. Daniel Bryan and Mauro were like key to the the CWC being must-see last year, kind of wish they had more enthusiastic commentary because the action is actually fun save for a few down moments.

Toni Sorm has replaced Becky Lynch as my bae. Where the hell has she been all my life?

The commentary is really below standard. J.R is long past his prime and Lita has very little to contribute at the best of times. I thought Madusa was supposed to be at the desk as well? That third person is surprisingly needed right now.

I think Dakota Kai and Bayley need to check they don't share a parent.

Part of Kairi Sane vs. Bianca Belair. Absolutely brutal, I've never seen anything like it before. It's genius.

Shayna Baszler has such a badass aura about her. She seems to be what they hope to turn Sonya Deville into after a few years. Also please stop teasing the eight horsewoman, I can only handle so much.

It's not fair, I want everyone in the semi finals to win.

They're not teasing. They're throwing up giant neon signs. Though to be fair, I only counted 6 horsewomen, since Sasha couldn't be bothered, and WWE still hasn't actually acknowledged the fourth MMA horsewomen's existence yet

Also, Toni Storm can take her indy/Joshi hybrid ass back to STARDOM in Japan and do her thing. I'll keep Rhea Ripley, if we're courting Aussies

So now you're threatening me? No wonder a heathen like you would like a heathen Aussie. Good day sir.
