WWE will begin taping their announced Women's tournament on Thursday 7/13 and Friday 7/14 at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, has confirmed.

The tournament, a 32 competitor event, will be taped for a WWE Network series.     As reported earlier this week, the current plan is to not release the episodes as a weekly episodic series but to instead release sets of episodes at once as Video on Demand programming, similar to how WWE has rolled out original series such as Holy Foley! and Camp WWE in the past.  This would be the first attempt at releasing first-run in-ring programming with this strategy on the Network,.

The tournament would be similar to the Cruiserweight Classic with a big focus being on different international competitors.    A number of talents are already undergoing background checks.

The current plan is to hold the finals of the tournament as a live WWE Network special on Tuesday 8/29.
