The teams for the WWE Mixed Match Challenge have been finalized with just a couple of days remaining from the commencement.
Earlier, multiple pairs have been revealed by the general managers from both Raw and Smackdown. It ensured that same numbers of teams would be announced from these two brands to have an equal number of matches between them.
Goldust has been the one who was dying to receive a partner in the contest. He has approached Asuka for a potential team. But, Kurt Angle booked her up with none other than the returning Miz wiping out the chances. Following up the decision, he booked Alicia Fox with the bizarre one.
