Three more added:
Ashley Rayne
Priscilla Kelly
Xia Brookside

Ashley Rayne is better known as Madison Rayne and has most notably worked for Impact! Wrestling (5-time Knockouts Champion, 2-time Knockout Tag Team Champion), Shimmer (1-time Shimmer Tag Team Champion) and Ring of Honor, while Xia Brookside is the daughter of WWE Performance Center trainer, Robbie Brookside. I don't know much about Priscilla Kelly other than she was the inaugural Shine Nova Champion.

I don't understand how you compare Nia Jax/Charlotte/Sasha Banks-- what have they got in common other than all being women on the main roster?
I think he meant in terms of the backgrounds, re: family connections. In any event, Xia may well be compared to Paige more than the 3 mentioned, because in addition to her family connections, she's British and only 18 (!) so the WWE will probably play up to that.

I never knew that being related to Snoop Dog means you have an impressive wrestling background?

There's plenty of women on the roster that are closer in connection to Nia Jax & Charlotte than Sasha Banks in regards to a wrestling background-- Nattie, Paige, Carmella, Tamina, etc.

so who else to be named? this was the rumoured list, and it's been pretty much on the money so far.

hopefully Chelsea Green and Kris Wolf are named.

Three more added. Hiroyo Matsumoto, Ariel Monroe and Vanessa Kraven.

Kraven might be the best known, having been on the indies since she debuted in 2004. By my reckoning, she may also the biggest woman in the tournament at 6'0 and 195lbs (183cm, 89kg).
