    This sounds like it could be really fun


    12-episode series
    Tuesday nights beginning Jan.16 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT. airing on Facebook Watch exclusively in the U.S.
    Single-elimination mixed tag-team tournament to win $100,000 to support the charity of their choice
    20-minute episodes
    Fans will be able to directly influence and interact with the in-ring action, follow the rivalries and storylines in between events, and connect with one another as the drama unfolds

    Participants: Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch, Alicia Fox, Bobby Roode, Asuka, Carmella, Bayley, Charlotte Flair, Braun Strowman, Jimmy Uso, Enzo Amore, Lana, Finn Bálor, Naomi, Goldust, Natalya, Nia Jax, Rusev, Sasha Banks, Sami Zayn, The Miz, Shinsuke Nakamura, a member of the New Day TBD by fan vote, and a male member of Raw TBD by fan vote.


    I'd guess this could be Enzo and Nia Jax winning to do their story. But there could be some other fun teams too; Asuka and Strowman would be hilarious together :P

    Strowman and Bliss is a great pick just for the visual alone I'd say she would just come to up his hip.


  • Registered Users Posts: 976 ✭✭✭supremenovice


    Balor and Bayley have great chemistry and definitely like eachother away from the ring, so it's an obvious pairing that the crowd will get into. Which is why it won't happen!


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,171 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Becky and Balor! Irish duo to win it.

    And they even announced it on Rusev Day!


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,455 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Jimmy USO and Naomi paired up.

    Also, Anita Ajax and Apollo (who was added to replace Enzo).


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,850 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    Anita Ajax is a much better name for her

    It’s true. Facebook Watch is currently only available for the US.

    Hopefully WWE will be able to air it on the network outside of the US even on a week delay.

    The Miz & Asuka the latest pairing revealed for the Mixed Match Challenge.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,455 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    That's a fun team.


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,945 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    I can see Miz receiving a Asuka lock after they get eliminated


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,080 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    I'm hoping we get to see some ineteractions with these teams. Though will they be on the main shows or exclusive to facebook as well? Lie will we have Asuka as a guest on MizTV on Raw?
    I'd say it's a possibility if they need to promote it


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,455 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Alicia Fox and Goldust also announced.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Shinsuke paired with Natalya.

    What's with the partnerships? And having faces and heels team up? It's so random

    Carmella and Big E latest team announced


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,619 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I can see Miz receiving a Asuka lock after they get eliminated

    And selling it like a legend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,080 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    So who are the favourites so far? I'm thinking Alexa/Braun vs Flair/Roode in the final.

    If they don;t do a bit where Flair and Roode accidentally put on each other's robes, I'll be disappointed. Or even one puts on the wrong robe


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,309 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    Sami with RKO hoody. Step up or down from the Sports Direct Lonsdale jacket he used to have?

    Not sure how reliable since when has the mirror had coverage of wrestling but would be great news


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,850 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    The Mirror covers wrestling quite a lot these days if their Twitter is any indication.
