Out of the blue, Mixed Match Challenge is back for a second season.
WWE announced the new season on their website this afternoon. It will once again be streamed live on Facebook Watch in the United States and for the first time will also stream live in Germany, Mexico, Australia, France, Indonesia, the Philippines, Spain, Thailand and Vietnam. In addition, a Mixed Match Challenge pre-show will air ten minutes before the shows starts.
Instead of a single elimination tournament like last season, this time the tournament will be competed under round robin rules. Each episode will be 30 minutes long and will feature two matches. There will be 14 episodes in the season, with the finals culminating at WWE TLC on December 16.
Here are the ten teams competing this season:
Raw: Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss, Bobby Lashley and Sasha Banks, Finn Balor and Bayley, Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox, Kevin Owens and Natalya
SmackDown: The Miz and Asuka, Jimmy Uso and Naomi, Rusev and Lana, AJ Styles and Charlotte, R-Truth and Carmella
The second season will premiere Tuesday, September 18 following SmackDown.
