The list just keeps on growing. With the Mae Young Classic set to take place in about two weeks, it’s time to really start hammering down the list of names that will be participating in this year’s tournament. The numbers have been filling up rapidly and now the list is getting even more complete. As luck would have it, WWE has released a new batch of names, some of which you might recognize.

In a new article on, four new names have been announced for the tournament. Some of the names might be familiar to you as one is a regular in Ring of Honor and another recently appeared at the United Kingdom Championship Tournament event as part of a four way match. Here are the names and a little bit about each one of them:

Zeuxis – A masked luchadora who refers to herself as Puerto Rican Power with over ten years of experience.

Isla Dawn – From Scotland and appeared in a four way #1 contenders match for a shot at the Women’s Title on the UK show.

Lacey Lane – Signed to NXT and trained by the Dudley Boyz with a background in college basketball.

Karen Q – A Chinese American with a lot of time spent in Ring of Honor, where she is one of the higher profile members of the Women of Honor.

Here’s Dawn against Asuka from last year.

Asuka vs. Stacy Coates: Raw, Nov. 6, 2017

Opinion: One of the funnest things about the Mae Young Classic is seeing the new names coming in. While a lot of them aren’t going to be sticking around, it’s cool to see people who might be around in the future or who might get a job out of their performances. It certainly worked for Cedric Alexander in the Cruiserweight Classic and it worked for several entrants in last year’s event.
