MAE YOUNG CLASSIC: Kairi Sane wins the Mae Young Classic tournament

Posted on 9/13/117 by Colin Vassallo

Former World Wonder Ring Stardom champion Kairi Sane became
the inaugural winner of the Mae Young Classic tournament
after she successfully defeated Shayna Baszler in last
nights final.

Held in front of the tournaments largest audience in Las
Vegas, Nevada, Sane will now be one of the competitors to
challenge for the vacant NXT Womens champion at NXT
Takeover: Houston in November.

After the match, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Sara
dAmato presented Sane with the huge trophy and a bouquet of
flowers. Baszler remained in the ring for the presentation
and then left.

WWE chose not to go the Cruiserweight Classic route where
the winner was given the WWE Cruiserweight title. Instead, a
match will be set up for NXT Takeover: Houston with the
opponent or opponents still yet to be determined.

NXT will be having television tapings tonight at Full Sail
University in Orlando, Florida and that will shed some light
on the situation.
