Mixed Match Challenge
Big change made to the WWE Mixed Match Challenge that brings more meaning to the event!

Season two of WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge is approaching its final weeks with the Finals set to take place at TLC on December 16th from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.





To this point, each team from RAW and SmackDown Live has had a minimum of three matches in this year’s round robin format. Here’s a look at the latest standings:

RAW

  1. Ember Moon & Braun Strowman/Mickie James & Bobby Lashley: 3-0
  2. Bayley & Finn Balor: 2-2
  3. Alicia Fox & Jinder Mahal/Natalya & Kevin Owens (replaced by Bobby Roode): 0-3

SmackDown Live

  1. Asuka & The Miz/Charlotte Flair & AJ Styles: 3-0
  2. Naomi & Jimmy Uso: 2-2
  3. Carmella & R-Truth/Lana & Rusev: 0-3

Today, WWE announced a new stipulation for the aforementioned Mixed Match Challenge Finals at TLC, revealing the winning team members will each become the #30 entrant in the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble Matches in January:

WWE.com has learned that the stakes for WWE Mixed Match Challenge Season 2 have gotten positively Royal!

In addition to earning supreme bragging rights over nine other elite mixed tandems, the winning Superstars of this season’s 14-week round robin event will receive the coveted 30th entry in their respective Royal Rumble Matches in January 2019, giving them a greater opportunity to win the celebrated free-for-all before going on to headline WrestleMania. In addition, they will receive an all-expenses paid vacation to anywhere in the world.

Don’t miss WWE Mixed Match Challenge Season 2, Tuesdays at 10 ET/7 PT on Facebook Watch

EA’s Take: I actually really like that this stipulation was added, it actually makes the Mixed Match Challenge feel a little bit important. Not important enough for me to start watching regularly, just because I can only consume so much professional wrestling. It also makes me wonder that this could mean for WWE Champion AJ Styles. Does this indicate he won’t be winning the tournament since he’s already WWE Champion? Or perhaps does it indicate he would be losing his title? Like I said, at least it gives a little intrigue to the MMC.
