WWE reveals streaming details for Mae Young Classic

For their first-ever women’s tournament, WWE Network is also trying out a new release model.

They’ve used the Netflix-inspired, binge-inducing full season drop for a few shows in the past, but never for one focused on in-ring competition. Triple H has said its an experiment based on the different ways viewers are used to consuming programming these days; some critics have cited it as an example not everyone in the company is behind the Mae Young Classic (MYC).

Regardless, it’s happening, and it’s left a lot of fans (and, to be honest, wrestling sites like Cageside Seats) debating how and when to watch and discuss the episodes - and the results.

One big question has been when exactly the first four episodes would be available to stream on the the Network. We knew we were getting them this upcoming Monday, Aug. 28, but would they be available at midnight for the turn of the calendar page? In what time zone?

While they won’t tell you when to watch, a new story at’s at least answered that question of when you can start...

The first four episodes of the historic 32-woman tournament will be available on demand, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network, beginning this Monday at 9 a.m. ET.

Presumably, the second batch of four episodes - already announced for the following Monday, Sept. 4 - will drop at the same time. The live finale has been set for Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 10 p.m. Eastern for a while.

Here at Cageside, we’ll have a results post and open thread for discussion, as well as throwing a couple different ways of reviewing the show at you.

The MYC is only a couple days away... Get hyped.
