WWE will start its newest show today, titled Mixed Match Challenge, which will air on Facebook Watch starting at 10PM EST immediately following Smackdown Live.
The 12-episode, 20-minute series was announced by both companies on December 13 and will be a tournament featuring mixed teams from Raw and Smackdown competing against each other until there’s only one winner. The winning team will receive $100,000 for a charity they are associated with and WWE will also donate $10,000 for each team’s charity, with a total overall donation of $220,000.
The first match tonight will feature Finn Balor and Sasha Banks taking on Shinsuke Nakamura and Natalya. Facebook Watch is only available for those in the United States but the show will air on the WWE Network internationally as well later in the week.
WWE Mixed Match Challenge is the first original series produced by WWE for Facebook.
