It appears that Crystal from the Philippines may not be appearing at the upcoming Mae Young Classic.
WWE announced additional names from the tournament today and she along with Mercedes Martinez, Mia Yim, Killer Kelly from Portugal, and Crystal from the Philippines were announced for the events. All mentions of Crystal in the article have since been removed.
Below is an excerpt of what they wrote about Crystal, who is referred to as a “breakout star from Southeast Asia’s burgeoning wrestling scene.”
“Twenty-four-year-old Crystal, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Philippine Wrestling,” has competed throughout Southeast Asia, including in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, since making her debut in February 2016. Sporting a wrestling ring tattoo on her arm, Crystal developed a love for sports-entertainment in her youth when she would watch WWE with her grandmother. A highflyer inside the squared circle, she was discovered by WWE officials during a scouting trip to the region in 2017.”
We will keep you updated if they decide to add her back or if we receive any information on why she was removed.
