Both the NWA Women's Tag Team title tournament and Invitational Cup fields are set for the Empower pay-per-view on Saturday, August 28th.

On Wednesday, the NWA announced that The Freebabes (Miranda Gordy, Jazzy Yang and Hollyhood Hayley) will be part of the four-team, one-night tournament that will see new champions crowned for the first time since 1983. Gordy is the daughter of Terry Gordy and Yang is the daughter of Jimmy Yang.

The Freebabes join AEW's Red Velvet and KiLynn King; The Hex (Allysin Kay and Marti Belle); and Hell on Heels (Renee Michelle and Sahara 7).

The NWA also announced that Kiera Hogan is the final entrant in the ten-woman Invitational Cup gauntlet match. After wrapping up with Impact Wrestling, Hogan has worked twice in AEW and has also been announced for Friday's Rampage against Jade Cargill.

Hogan joins a field that includes Chelsea Green, Tootie Lynn, Jamie Senegal, Lady Frost, Debbie Malenko, Bianca Carelli, Jennacide, Masha Slamovich and Thunderkitty.

The show from the famed Chase Ballroom in St. Louis will also feature NWA Women's Champion Kamille vs. Leyla Hirsch in a title match and Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo vs. Melina.
