WWE MMC preview: Elias & Bayley vs. Rusev & Lana; Vote now for which other WWE MMC team will join the comments section during show
Although Samoa Joe won the right to partner with Bayley in a Facebook fan exclusive vote, his injury resulted in Elias joining forces with Raw’s favorite hugger to represent Team Red in the innovative tournament.
The two Superstars may seem like opposites at first glance, but Elias and Bayley share the distinction of emerging to prominence in the turbulent world of NXT, having dared to bring their respective forms of self-expression to the main roster – Elias through song and Bayley as the Superstar who isn’t afraid to hug it out. However, when the bell rings, both competitors are all business, and it’s this mutual no-nonsense approach that will make them a dangerous tandem.
In the weeks leading up to their first-round match, Bayley, a trailblazing NXT Women’s Champion who went on to capture the Raw Women’s Title, possessed the foresight to build chemistry with the up-and-coming Elias. Now that it appears they have indeed found common ground, the stronger alliance could prove extremely beneficial for both Superstars.
On the other side, the in-ring partnership between Rusev and Lana is an intriguing one to say the least. The Bulgarian Brute is a two-time United States Champion who demands respect in both singles and tag team competition. While The Ravishing Russian has not competed as extensively as her spouse, the Total Divas co-star recently participated in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match and has dedicated herself to her husband’s rigorous and unorthodox training regimen, signaling that she is ready for top-notch competition.
Obviously, success for any tag team requires more than physical skill. There must also be an intuition between the competitors, something that can take years for two Superstars to develop. However, for a married couple in love, there is a much higher chance that element will already be intact, raising the odds that tonight’s WWE Mixed Match Challenge showdown will end up being transformed into Rusev Day!
The two teams will battle in the ground-breaking tournament for the opportunity to win $100,000 for their charity. Each showdown will follow traditional Mixed Tag Team Match rules: When tagged, male Superstars face off with the opposing team’s male competitor, and female Superstars battle fellow female competitors.
The winning team will take on either the robe-dawning duo of United States Champion Bobby Roode & SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair or Titus Worldwide’s Apollo Crews and the formidable Nia Jax.
Who will reign supreme and advance to Round Two of WWE Mixed Match Challenge? Find out tonight at 10 ET/7 PT, exclusively on Facebook Watch.
