R-Truth & Carmella def. The Miz & Asuka
All good things come to an end, and the once-unbeatable squad of The Miz & Asuka fell to R-Truth & Carmella in the Mixed Match Challenge Semifinals, snapping any chance they had of repeating as tournament winners. Blame their own internal turmoil for the defeat, as Asuka’s prior loss had left The Awesome One less than confident in his partner’s abilities — despite having watched her brutalize Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch moments before on SmackDown LIVE.
His mood didn’t improve when Asuka joined in on the dance interlude, but if The A-Lister’s flat refusal to tag in his partner did more harm than good, his use of her as a human shield ended up sealing his defeat. The A-Lister fed Asuka straight into a superkick from Carmella, an act of cowardice that led The Empress of Tomorrow to completely destroy her partner, leaving Miz easy pickings for an Unprettier by Truth. So, it’s official: This Sunday will see Tables, Ladders, Chairs … and maybe a dance break, too.
