REVIEW: Mae Young Classic Finals

Posted in Reviews

The Mae Young Classic features 32 of the most talented female professional wrestlers from all over the globe. Those 32 women will compete in a tournament on WWE Network. This is a review of the Mae Young Classic on, reviewing each episode individually.

Our review of the Mae Young Classic continues on with the final round LIVE special on the WWE Network, featuring Shayna Baszler versus Kairi Sane!

> This was a pretty good match.  Although, the tournament had seen better matches in previous rounds, this was far from being the worst.  I loved the story told that Shayna had to ground Kairi to beat her, and the spot where Kairi fell into the choke hold was cool.  Overall it was Kairi that picked up the win after nailing an impressive elbow drop.

> The tournament was extremely fun to watch.  I am glad that I took the time out to watch every minute of the Mae Young Classic.  Last year I didn’t watch the entire Cruiserweight Classic, but there was just something about the MYC that drew me in.  Maybe it was because I knew more involved, and I had also worked with a few of them over the course of my commentary and editing career.  I also enjoyed the commentary by Jim Ross and Lita.  For two people that never worked together on the mic, I thought they worked well together after finally gelling in the second round.  The production was great, and the crowd was into the majority of the action.  I loved the MYC and I hope they do it again next year!
