Rumor: WWE's Next Tournament To Focus On South American Stars

WWE has staged three extremely successful tournaments in the last couple of years and it seems a fourth may be on the horizon.

Triple H has done an awful lot for WWE when it comes to new talent and helping the company appeal to a worldwide fan base. It hasn't all been about his work with NXT either. Starting with the Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) back in 2016, The Game has been the mastermind behind a number of very successful WWE tournaments.

The CWC was the first then a few months later a number of the United Kingdom's top talents came together for a 16 man tournament with the winner being crowned WWE's first ever UK Champion. The third tournament took place this past summer and was named the Mae Young Classic. 32 women from around the world competing in a single elimination tournament.


That has left fans wondering what's next. Where will Triple H and the other head honchos at NXT head next to scout out talent for their next tournament? Well according to Planeta Wrestling next on the agenda will be a competition involving wrestlers from Central and South America. That part of the world has a rich history when it comes to wrestling and is currently well represented in WWE. If the rumors are true then the tournament could take place in Chile, much like the UK one was staged in Britain.

Don't get your hopes up quite yet though. William Regal has been integral in putting together the other previously mentioned tournaments and took to Twitter on Tuesday to squash the latest rumors. Regal said that "the WWE has no Latin American tournament booked at this time.' Since it's coming from the horse's mouth, then it's likely true, but the tweet also has an air about it that suggests the idea may happen in the future.

Much like with the Mae Young Classic, if a Latin American tournament were to take place, then it could feature some stars that are already signed to WWE. The likes of Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik, and maybe even NXT Champion Andrade 'Cien' Almas. If it does end up happening, then it will certainly make for some entertaining matchups and wrestling that many members of the WWE Universe will likely not have been subject to before.
