Asuka has an amazing partner for the Mixed Match Challenge Soon WWE Mixed Match Challenge will start on Facebook Watch after SmackDown Live on January 16, and so far the tournament has brought together some interesting teams.
However, the most interesting pair was announced today.
The WWE recently confirmed that former intercontinental champion The Miz would return to Raw this week, and Miz is already running his noisy mouth. WWE announced that The Miz will partner with Asuka in the Mixed Match Challenge.
WWE shared a video that showed The Miz reaching the arena and immediately went into promotion mode, then waited for his partner to reveal himself. It was then that Asuka got out of a limousine and approached Miz.
Miz said that Asuka is exactly what she wanted her partner to be, and she got excited when she told him they were going to win, and she will make her a Superstar.
This is certainly an interesting pairing to say the least, since they have two very different styles, so we’ll have to wait and see how this works.
So far, other teams that have been confirmed for the tournament include Nia Jax and Apollo Crews, Sasha Banks and Finn Balor, Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman, Lana and Rusev, Jimmy Uso and Naomi.
