The WWE Women’s Tournament will more than likely go down this summer … this according to Triple H — who says he wants to uncover hidden talent like they did with the Cruiserweight Classic.
The WWE exec was interviewed by Fox Sports’ Wrestling Compadres podcast and told them the setback for a tournament featuring women has mainly been due to scheduling.
However, he finally had good news to report about when it will happen. “The women we’re gonna do probably this summer.” Adding “That’s the plan anyways.”
As we previously reported, popular female wrestlers Kimber Lee, Heidi Lovelace and Andrea were recently signed to WWE. Plus, there’s a whole crop of new performers at the Performance Center.
Even with all of that talent, Triple H says he wants to find more. Explaining the plan is “much like cruisers” … “to go scour the globe and maybe find the girls that are out there doing this that no one’s heard of. That no has seen. That are like these diamonds, waiting.”
Check out the interview below. The women’s tourney talk happens at around 21:00.
