The path-breaking Mixed Match Challenge show will culminate on Facebook starting from January 16th onwards. There will be 12 mixed tag team matches in a tournament to crown a pair from either Raw or Smackdown. The winners will receive worth $100000. All of the money will be used for charity purposes.
It is a history-making show to be conducted by the biggest pro-wrestling promotion of the world. For the first time, the company will be airing a show, that too in a live format on a social media platform like Facebook. Airing such show on a tech giant will benefit the product and help to cope up with the time.
Recently, the third team of the tournament got declared by the Raw General Manager, Kurt Angle. Sasha Banks was named to team up with the first-ever Universal Champion, Finn Balor. It is an exciting team and has all the potential to end up the winners of the series.

WWE.com too sounded hopeful for a good result from this team with the following comments on the team’s behalf,
“Whether competing in the history-making WWE Iron Man Match against Bayley in NXT or inside Hell in a Cell against Charlotte Flair, the innovative Banks is the very definition of a trailblazer. With the distinction of being the first-ever Universal Champion and the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history, Bálor is definitely cut from the same cloth as the four-time Raw Women’s Champion.”
