WWE just announced a new season of Mixed Match Challenge will stream live in the United States and for the first time in many countries all around the world (but not in the UK…). The first episode of MMC will be aired on Tuesday, September 18, at 10 ET/7 PT, with a special pre-show starting at 9:50 ET. The 30-minute episodes will air on Facebook Watch.
Like in Season 1, each episode will reflect a progressive approach to production, especially social interaction. Fans will again have the opportunity to vote to impact and influence the show for all 14 episodes of the season via Facebook.
The storylines will continue between episodes across WWE’s Facebook Pages with short-form videos and social content. WWE will also promote and recap the series across its extensive digital and social footprint, including on the Mixed Match Challenge Facebook Watch Page.
WWE Mixed Match Challenge is a RAW vs. SmackDown Live round robin tournament where male and female Superstars team up to determine which combination of strength, skill, athleticism and experience reign supreme. Each showdown in the competition will follow traditional Mixed Tag Team Match rules.
Unlike Season 1, the teams have already been announced. The teams from Monday Night RAW will include Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss, Bobby Lashley & Sasha Banks, Finn Bálor & Bayley, Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox and Kevin Owens & Natalya.
The teams from SmackDown Live will include the inaugural MMC winners The Miz & Asuka, Jimmy Uso & Naomi, Rusev & Lana, WWE Champion AJ Styles & SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and R-Truth & Carmella.
