WWE Mixed Match Challenge is a Raw vs. SmackDown LIVE round robin tournament where male and female Superstars team up to determine which combination of strength, skill, athleticism and experience reigns supreme. Each showdown in the competition will follow traditional Mixed Tag Team Match rules: When tagged, male Superstars face off with the opposing team’s male competitor, and female Superstars battle fellow female competitors.
The teams from Monday Night Raw will include returning tandem Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss as well as new combinations, including Bobby Lashley & Sasha Banks, Finn Bálor & Bayley, Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox and fellow Canadians Kevin Owens & Natalya.
The teams from SmackDown LIVE will include the returning tandems of inaugural WWE MMC winners The Miz & Asuka, Jimmy Uso & Naomi, and Rusev & Lana. In addition, the competition will see exciting new combinations, including WWE Champion AJ Styles & SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and R-Truth & Carmella.
