WWE announced additional names for the Mae Young Classic ’18 on Friday … including a veteran indie wrestler, recent signees and a popular UK star.

Cathy Kelly made the announcement on and the following names were made official:

  • Kacy Catanzaro, the American Ninja Warrior star who recently signed with WWE
  • Jinny, the current PROGRESS Women’s Champion
  • Io Shirai, the popular STARDOM wrestler who recently made her WWE debut in Japan 
  • Nicole Matthews, 12-year vet on the indie wrestling scene who was an alternate last year

These four women join the two who were made official earlier this week — returning WWE star Kaitlyn and first-year MYC participant Rhea Ripley.

Watch the announcement video below.


  • Louis

    Kind of a very bland list so far.

    • #WOKEN Lou DiFigliano

      Cus they’re wrestlers not pornstars.

      Yawn – Jinny and Shirai are the ONLY ones worth getting excited for. The rest make me want to go to sleep. I’d much rather watch the Knockout at Impact tho – with Su Yung, Rosemary, Allie, Tessa Blanchard and now Shotzi Blackheart (with a rumored Scarlett Bordeaux coming soon), THAT’S the crew I want to see!
