WWE Announce 32-Woman Tournament Set For Summer

Following on from the successful Cruiserweight Classic last Summer and the WWE UK Tournament earlier this year, WWE have announced plans today for a 32-competitor women's tournament live on the WWE Network in the summer.

The plans were unveiled today as part of the 'WWE Reimagined' presentation that was held in Orlando, Florida as part of WrestleMania week.

Women from 17 different countries around the world will be competing in the tournament that will be streamed exclusively on the WWE Network.

Triple H commented: "Building on our Women's division, it gives us great pleasure to share in announcing what's next for WWE. For the first time ever, this summer, WWE Network will feature a Women's Tournament."

He was joined at the presentation by NXT Women's Champion Asuka, SmackDown Women's Champion Alexa Bliss and Raw Women's Champion Bayley, who all seem excited by the announcement.

“I speak on behalf of all of us, not just the champions standing before you today, but the entire Women's division. It's truly an honour to be part of another significant movement in WWE history,” said Alexa, who defends her Championship tomorrow night at WrestleMania.

Asuka followed up with, "I am proud to be part of the Women's Evolution, representing Japan and WWE."

No dates have been announced for the event yet, but they are expected in the near future as WWE prepares for another historic tournament exclusively on the WWE Network.
