Arindam Paul / 11 January 2018

The setup for the Mixed Match Challenge contest is going on in full force. Both the general managers from Raw and Smackdown Live are quite busy finding out the appropriate male and female superstars who will team up from their respective brands. Multiple pairs have been revealed by them, till date. Some liked the decision whereas some did not like it.

Recently, Kurt Angle announced another team from their side which is a combination of sheer power and quick moves. Nia Jax was paired with Apollo Crews in a new announcement from the GM. It is to be noted that Nia was not happy, at all after she lost Enzo Amore as his partner. The Cruiserweight Champion was suffering from the flu to get sidelined from the contest.

Check out the WWE updates provided by the team.

“Crews has found new life since aligning himself with Titus Worldwide, as the partnership has armed the grappler with a great deal of momentum. Crews replaced Enzo Amore in the revolutionary competition after the WWE Cruiserweight Champion took ill with the flu. Despite Crews’ enormous enthusiasm, however, Jax doesn’t appear over-excited at the prospect of their new union.”

As you can see, Nia is not quite happy after knowing her teammate. Apollo has received a new life after getting aligned with the Titus Worldwide, but he is yet to prove himself in the big league. So, he should come up with a determined mindset to win this contest.

As a counter of this announcement, the Smackdown General Manager, Daniel Bryan announced another real-life couple to be inserted into the tournament. This time around, Naomi will team up with his husband, Jimmy Uso to compete in the tournament. With the agility that these two possesses, it is certain that this team might be the quickest in this tournament. Here are the updates available about the pair on WWE.com,

“SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso will team up with his wife Naomi in the unprecedented WWE Mixed Match Challenge tournament on Facebook Watch. When you add in the natural chemistry of the loving married couple, something most teams in the tournament will have to struggle to develop in a short time, you end up with a recipe for WWE Mixed Match Challenge success that will definitely leave the WWE Universe feeling the glow!”
