Historical significance. The Mae Young Classic is one of the most anticipated events of 2017 with 32 female wrestlers competing to become the first champion. The name alone suggests that there will be some history built in and Lita being one of the commentators only enhances this idea. Now though, another legend will be part of the tournament, though not in the actual field.
Opinion: This is one of those thing that makes the tournament feel more important. If there’s one thing that WWE is great at doing, it’s looking back at its own history and Madusa (or Alundra Blayze) is certainly a major part of the women’s division’s history. It makes things feel big and more historic, which is only going to help this out.
