The taping for the Mae Young Classic is only two weeks away … and WWE not only revealed when we can watch it, but they also announced Lita and Jim Ross will be calling the action.

WWE.com made it official this morning and said the the tournament will be available on-demand August 28, with the final four available on Monday, September 4.

The final match will be streamed live from Las Vegas on September 12 at 10 p.m. after Smackdown Live.

While this is part of Ross’ current contract with WWE to work at special events, this is Lita’s first foray into color commentary following her exit from the Raw pre-show last year.

Only eight competitors have officially been announced for the tournament, but two more qualified during the last set of NXT tapings — and the tournament is quickly starting to take shape ahead of its July 13 and 14 taping.
