The Genius of the Sky soars into the Classic against Xia Brookside
The WWE Universe will get to see if the Io Shirai hype is real when the Japanese sensation, one of the highest-profile signings in WWE history, makes her hotly anticipated debut against 19-year-old Englishwoman Xia Brookside.
Having already cemented her legacy in her native country, The Genius of the Sky is expected to bring a dazzling aerial game to this year’s Mae Young Classic and, if all goes according to her plan, follow in the footsteps of longtime ally Kairi Sane, who won the inaugural Mae Young Classic.
As the youngest competitor in the tournament (with a remarkable pedigree as the daughter of European wrestling legend Robbie Brookside), Brookside enters the First-Round Match with plenty to prove. The world-traveled wunderkind will have her chance to make a name for herself when she goes up against one of the favorites in the tournament.
