Asuka teaming with The Miz in WWE Mixed Match Challenge


Another team has been confirmed for WWE's Mixed Match Challenge.

It was announced today that Asuka would be teaming with The Miz in the single-elimination tournament. Despite Asuka being a face and Miz being a heel, the storyline in the video where the team was revealed was that they were happy to be paired together and vowed to win.

Miz will return to Raw tonight for the first time since November 20th. He lost the Intercontinental Championship to Roman Reigns on that episode and then took time off to film WWE Studios' "The Marine 6: Close Quarters."

UPDATED: Goldust & Alicia Fox have also been confirmed as a team for Mixed Match Challenge. The 12-episode series will debut on Facebook Watch on January 16th, and WWE put out a video where Cathy Kelley teaches viewers how they'll be able to watch the show.
