Strowman, Styles out of WWE Mixed Match Challenge


More changes have been made to the second season of the Mixed Match Challenge.

It was announced during tonight’s show that the team of Jeff Hardy and Charlotte Flair would continue teaming as the tournament starts to wind down, effectively putting AJ Styles out of the tournament for reasons that were not made clear. Hardy replaced Styles last week after he lost the WWE title to Daniel Bryan.

Braun Strowman is also out of the tournament, as he’s getting elbow surgery and will be out for a while, perhaps up to the Royal Rumble. Ember Moon’s new partner will be revealed next week as her team will take on Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox.

These two changes add to the other changes that have taken place since the tournament first started on 9/18. Alexa Bliss, Kevin Owens and Sasha Banks were all in the tournament at one point, but were taken out of action due to injury.

The finals of the Mixed Match Challenge will take place at WWE TLC on December 16. The winners of the match will win the #30 spot in their respective Royal Rumble bouts.
