WWE are set to bring the Mae Young Classic back later on this year.
Last year's edition saw 32 women from all around the world vying for the opportunity to be crowned the inaugural Mae Young Classic winner. In the finals, Kairi Sane overcame Shayna Baszler to earn her spot on NXT's roster. It wasn't just Kairi who was signed from the tournament however, with Baszler and a handful of others all being signed to official contracts.
The MYC was yet another step in the evolution of women's professional wrestling, following the crowning of a first female Money in the Bank winner, and leading to January's historic women's Royal Rumble.
Seeing as last year's tournament was a massive success, fans have been left to ponder who will be included in the 2018 tournament bracket. Will there be any major indy names, or will fans be introduced to new names they may have never heard of before?
10. Veda Scott
Veda Scott is one of those talents that just hasn't had her big break. That could all change if she gets chosen for the second Mae Young Classic.
Ranked as the 2012 Rookie of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, the Providence-born wrestler made a real impact in American indy promotion Absolute Intense Wrestling. Her time spent in AIW saw Scott become a Women's Champion while also teaming alongside Gregory Iron, with the tandem capturing the AIW Tag Team Championships.
Promotions such as SHIMMER Women Athletes, Impact Wrestling, and Ring of Honor have given Scott the chances that she needs in order to get noticed by a bigger audience. This has in turn led to a number of international companies asking her to come over, with appearances in the UK, Japan, and Germany all under her belt.
Perhaps still unknown to many wrestling fans, Veda Scott has all the potential to make it to the big time. She just needs the chance to show it.
