7 Mae Young Classic 2018 Wrestlers WWE MUST Sign

6. Priscilla Kelly

Another early MYC departee, WWN standout Priscilla Kelly was put away by Deonna Purrazzo in the competition's very first round. She was, effectively, a spot-filler brought in to make a signed talent look good, but there's more to 'Hell's Favourite Harlot' than the average tournament jobber, and the chances of her winding up in WWE's developmental system are strong.

Kelly made her breakthrough under Gabe Sapolsky's WWN banner. Given that the former ROH promoter is now with WWE, she's almost certainly on the signing team's radar, and her versatility is a big plus point. Her long-term future probably lies between the ropes, but she proved herself an awesome, complimentary manager through her union with Austin Theory in EVOLVE, and given that he, too, has undergone a WWE tryout in recent months, there's every chance they'll eventually reprise their act in NXT.

Still only 21 years old, there's no reason to rush Kelly through the biggest wrestling promotion on the planet. WWE may choose to let her develop on the indies instead, but bringing her in that this young age would allow them to sculp her skillset from the ground up, giving her a great shot at long-term success.
