9th/10th teams for Mixed Match Challenge revealed Submitted by Aaron Rift on 01/09/2018 at 02:52 PM
Earlier today when reporting on Samoa Joe's injury, WWE announced that Elias would be teaming up with Bayley in the Mixed Match Challenge.
WWE also announced that Shinsuke Nakamura and Natalya would be the 10th team for the Mixed Match Challenge.
Here was WWE's announcement:
Shinsuke Nakamura will team with Natalya to represent SmackDown LIVE in the WWE Mixed Match Challenge tournament, airing exclusively on Facebook Watch beginning next Tuesday.
The explosive pairing of The Artist with The Queen of Harts will truly prove to be something special. A graduate of the infamous Hart Family Dungeon, as well as a former SmackDown Women’s and Divas Champion, Natalya has shown time and time again that her technical expertise is second to none. Mixed with the charismatic Strong Style of the two-time NXT Champion, this combination promises to present a tag team arsenal so dynamic, so explosive, that it could arguably rival that of the original Hart Foundation.
