It looks like we have our first reported name for this year’s Mae Young Classic tournament.

Tokyo Sports is reporting that Meiko Satomura will be participating in the tournament this summer via their official Twitter page this week.

Whether or not the 38-year-old standout performer will be working with WWE beyond the tournament wasn’t made clear.

Satomura is the founder of the Sendai Girls promotion in Japan and is a 20-year veteran inside the ring.
