Meiko Satomura reportedly set for WWE Mae Young Classic


While there haven't been any names officially announced, a standout wrestler of her generation looks set for WWE's second Mae Young Classic.

Tokyo Sports reported today that 38-year-old Meiko Satomura would be participating in the tournament this summer.

Whether or not Satomura would have any involvement with WWE past appearing in the Mae Young Classic wasn't made clear.

Satomura is a founder of the Sendai Girls promotion in Japan and has been wrestling for over 20 years. She's also been wrestling on the United Kingdom independent scene fairly often recently, appearing for Pro Wrestling: EVE and Fight Club: PRO. She won the Fight Club: PRO title from Chris Brookes earlier this year.

The Mae Young Classic will be taped in Orlando, Florida on August 8th and 9th. Last year's tournament had a 32-wrestler field that included a mix of wrestlers who were under contract with WWE and those who weren't.
