A total of 24 WWE Superstars will be participating in the Mixed Match Challenge. The tournament will pit male and female Superstars teaming up to determine which combination of strength, skill, athleticism and experience reigns supreme.
Fans will have the opportunity to vote on Facebook for the final competitor from the Raw roster, as well as which tag team member of The New Day will be added to the SmackDown LIVE roster. Teams will be announced beginning Thursday, January 4.
From the Raw brand there will be Alexa Bliss, Alicia Fox, Asuka, Bayley, Braun Strowman, Enzo Amore, Finn Balor, Goldust, Nia Jax, Sasha Banks, and The Miz. From the Smackdown brand there will be Becky Lynch, Bobby Roode, Carmella, Charlotte Flair, Jimmy Uso, Lana, Naomi, Natalya, Rusev, Sami Zayn, and Shinsuke Nakamura.
The show will be taped immediately following Smackdown Live on Tuesdays in the slot currently occupied by 205 Live. It’s not clear if 205 Live will move to a different day or else if tapings for this show will commence after Mixed Match Challenge airs.
Having both Raw and Smackdown Superstars on this show means that the individuals who will form part of Team Raw will have to pull double duty and work on Tuesdays as well apart from Monday.
