Round One Winners Face Off On Tonight’s WWE Mixed Match Challenge
Tonight’s WWE Mixed Match Challenge match will feature round one winners Finn Balor and Sasha Banks face The Miz and Asuka, and below is WWE.com’s official preview for the show:
The explosive Second Round of WWE Mixed Match Challenge kicks off tonight on Facebook Watch at 10 ET/7 PT, as the charismatic combination of Finn Bálor & Sasha Banks goes head-to-head with Intercontinental Champion The Miz & the undefeated Asuka.
To get to this point, Team “Demon Boss” overcame Shinsuke Nakamura & Natalya in the First Round of the groundbreaking tournament. Whether competing in the historic WWE Iron Man Match against Bayley at NXT TakeOver, inside Hell in a Cell against Charlotte Flair or in the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber, the innovative Boss is the very definition of a trailblazer. And Bálor, with the distinction of being the first-ever Universal Champion and the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history, is definitely cut from the same cloth as the four-time Raw Women’s Champion. Add to the mix their larger-than-life personas, and you have a fierce tandem that could throw the preverbal monkey wrench into “Team Awe-ska’s” plans to rise to WWE MMC glory.
In their First Round showdown, Miz & Asuka overcame Big E & Carmella. In addition to being a former WWE Champion, a eight-time Intercontinental Champion, a two-time United States Champion and a Money in the Bank Ladder Match winner, The Miz is a six-time Tag Team Champion who is capable of playing well with others. At his side is the unbeaten Empress of Tomorrow, whose incredible run of success includes an unprecedented 523 days as NXT Women’s Champion, a title she vacated before welcoming the new challenge of joining the Raw roster. The dynamic competitor has since taken WWE by storm, winning the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match to punch her ticket to WrestleMania 34. Put simply, Miz’s extensive and title-laden experience, mixed with the unbelievable skill of the unbeaten Asuka, will be a very difficult team to conquer.
See which elite team will advance in the Second Round showdown of WWE Mixed Match Challenge, tonight at 10 ET/7 PT, immediately following SmackDown LIVE at 8 ET/7 CT, exclusively on Facebook Watch.
