Big E & Carmella round out WWE Mixed Match Challenge lineup


The list of teams for WWE's Mixed Match Challenge is officially set.

Big E won a fan vote over his New Day stablemates and will be teaming with Carmella in the tournament. WWE noted that Big E received 47 percent of the vote over Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods.

There was a dark match before SmackDown last night where Jimmy Uso & Naomi faced Baron Corbin & Tamina (who aren't in Mixed Match Challenge). The match wasn't part of the tournament and was a run-through ahead of the series' debut. Beth Phoenix, who will be calling the show alongside Michael Cole and Corey Graves, was at SmackDown last night.
