    Mixed Match Challenge

    So weíve got our first pairing, Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss.

    Thatís a pair I struggle to think Smackdown could match already. Itís a dream team.

    Anyway, this deserves its own thread and Iím looking forward to the tournament massively.

    What exactly is it? Mixed doubles matches?

    I donít understand most of it. I think the same rules as a mixed tag? The fact it has so many big names involved is good. As is the 100,000 going to charity.

    Jimmy Uso and Naomi are both in it too.

    My goodness that pairing is hilarious. I want their finishing move to be a Twisted Bliss from off Braun's shoulders.

    Meh, Roode’s the weak link there. There’s still a load of potential great pairing. I hope The Miz gets Nia Jax. Interesting it bumps 205 live. How can Asuka lose?

    Good to see people are on top of it.

    Angle posted an Instagram or Tweet that has tongues wagging he is replacing Enzo, which is curious.

    I want to see The Miz paired with Sasha, but heel Sasha. Those two seem a perfect fit for each other.

    No Miz and Sasha as she was just announced as teaming with Finn Balor

    That's an interesting pairing. Hmm.

    Put The Miz and Bayley together, please. Let them play off each other as the odd couple. Then do Nia and whomever replaces Enzo, Goldust and Alicia Fox and Asuka and Samoa Joe.

    On the Smackdown side of things, you almost have to do Naomi and Jimmy Uso. Pair Rusev and Lana back together for this, Natalya and Zayn...that leaves Carmella and someone from New Day and (my personal yuck) Nakamura and Becky Lynch.

    EDIT: Uh, so in that scenario Joe and Asuka win hands down, right? I mean, Asuka has to win either way, but Asuka and Joe would be the scariest team around.

    Rusev and Lana are in fact back together for this challenge. Looks like they're announcing two teams a day

    Rusev and Lana together is great. Though they have zero chance of winning it’ll be nice to see them.

    I’m more excited about this than the Rumble right now.

    Joe and Asuka would be amazing. Just straight up merking couples. Also, if we can get both Charlotte and Roode coming out in dueling robes I'm game.

    I kind of want Bayley and Goldust together, especially if they tweak Bayley back to that starstruck NXT character rather than whatever cesspool of characterisation they've made main roster Bayley.

    Coach, when you say 'my personal yuck', do you mean 'pick'? If not, what's up with Nak and Lynch?

    I just don't much like Becky Lynch. I feel like both she and Sasha are massively overrated.

    I'm not sure we will get this on the weekly tv but it would be nice way to promote the teams if they actually interacted besides the team up vid... like do little segs of them preparing and what not. Considering that I think its only supposed to be 20 min episodes its gonna be harder to build chemistry.

    Seeing these pairings, tt seems like they want the superstars to really enjoy themselves, which can only be a good thing for the end product.

    In a very weird pairing, Apollo Crews is teaming with Nia Jax. He looks to be Enzo's replacement

    So our six team to date are:

    RAW:
    Apollo Crews/Nia Jax
    Finn Balor/Sasha Banks
    Braun Strowman/Alexa Bliss

    SMACKDOWN:
    Naomi/Jimmy Uso
    Lana/Rusev
    Charlotte Flair/Bobby Roode

    Assume Enzo would have teamed with Nia so they could anvance the storyline. Good on Crews stepping up.

    Your Charlotte/Roode dream may come true.

    Asuka and the Miz is very odd. I like it.

    That video made me laugh quite a bit. Just see it resulting in The Miz having the shit kicked out of him.

    I really hope thereís a good payoff to this.

    As much as that pairing doesn't make sense, it does.

    Miz is the guy you want at the ceremony to present the big cheque to whatever charity is being honoured, and Asuka can't lose without tossing her streak out the window.

    Crazy is as crazy does. Goldust has been teamed with Alicia Fox

    Well, the jobbers have been confirmed.

  29. #29
    Looks like Bayley will be teaming with Elias. Apparently Joe won the fan vote but Angle said he sustained an injury on Raw. Didn't see it last night, what happened?

    Yeah, I'm leaning that way, too. I really believe that Asuka and Miz are going to win, so they'd rather not a) team him with Bayley and b) beat him on this show.

    C) they probably wanted Elias to win the fan vote since they like him and he won't be hurt by it at all.

    So the remaining three teams are all Smackdown. Here's who is left:

    Carmella/Becky Lynch/Natalya
    Shinsuke/Sami Zayn/Member of the New Day

    I'd like to see Becky/Shinsuke, Carmella/New Day and Natalya/Sami

    Ugh. None of them hugely appeals. I see Zayn and Lynch having the most potential. A twisted part of me likes Carmella and Nakumara as an odd couple pairing. Which leaves New Day/Natalya. Meh.

    Shin and Nattie are a team.

    lol

    Becky got Sami so that leaves Carmella with a member of The New Day. Hope its Big E

    I’m happy with Becky/Sami. It’s a sensible team. Nakumara doesn’t deserve Nattie.

  38. #38
    And finally, we have Carmella and Big E.
