Edge & Beth Phoenix to face Miz & Maryse at WWE Royal Rumble


A mixed tag team match has been set for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 29.

Edge and wife Beth Phoenix will team together to take on The Miz and his wife, Maryse. The match was made following a segment on tonight’s Raw that had Miz confront Edge over the events of Day 1 this past Saturday.

Miz accused Edge of hiding behind his wife Phoenix, who made her WWE TV return at Day 1 as Maryse was on the apron distracting the referee. That allowed Edge to spear a distracted Miz for the win. Phoenix, on Raw, said that it was all her idea. Edge then suggested the tag match for the Royal Rumble. Miz didn’t seem too enthused about taking the match, but Phoenix eventually pressured him into accepting, which Maryse didn't like.

Edge and Miz have been feuding following Edge’s arrival to Raw following the Royal Rumble. Since returning from Dancing with the Stars, Maryse has been at Miz’s side. After attempting to fool Edge by teasing a split, Miz and Maryse renewed their vows last week on Raw. However, Edge interrupted the proceedings, leading to a “Brood bath”, where some sort of colored liquid fell from the ceiling landed on the two.
