The WWE has announced that Rhea Ripley (Demi Bennett) is the second official participant for the Mae Young Classic this summer.
The 21-year old Ripley joins Kaitlyn as the first two official entrants in the 32-woman tournament that will take place August 8th and 9th at Full Sail University in Florida.
The Australian native began her career in 2013 and landed on the WWE’s radar with a spot in the inaugural Mae Young Classic last year. In the opening round, she defeated Miranda Salinas and was subsequently eliminated by Dakota Kai.
Ripley is signed to a developmental deal and been with the company for the past year.
