WWE MMC Season 2 Preview: Lashley & James vs. Mahal & Fox; Miz & Asuka vs. Truth & Carmella
Last season’s Mixed Match Challenge winners The Miz & Asuka take on R-Truth & Carmella while Bobby Lashley & Mickie James will go head-to-head against Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox. WWE MMC Season 2 rages on tonight, streaming LIVE at 10 ET/7 PT on Facebook Watch.
Due to an injury to Sasha Banks, the dominant Bobby Lashley welcomes six-time Women’s Champion Mickie James as his replacement partner, and there is no telling just how far this powerhouse tag team will go.
Standing in the way of the battle-tested veterans is the deadly combination of Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox, the latter of whom is a close friend of Mickie’s, and once the serenity-seeking Modern Day Maharaja joins forces with the completely unpredictable Fox, anything is possible for this dangerous tandem.
The other match of the night will feature The Miz & Asuka, who won WWE Mixed Match Challenge Season 1 and are looking to kick off this competition with yet another victory. Though Team Awe-Ska seemed like an odd pairing last January, they proved to be an effective combination, defeating tandems such as Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss and Bobby Roode & Charlotte Flair to emerge as the last team standing. Without a doubt, this A-List combination has the potential to once again rise to the top of the pack.
The A-Lister & The Empress of Tomorrow will be opposed by yet another bizarre pairing, R-Truth & Carmella. The Staten Island Princess always has a few tricks up her sleeve, and she’s one of the few Superstars who has defeated the dominant Asuka. Twice, in fact. Truth and Miz are no strangers to one another, as they were once known as The Awesome Truth, a havoc-wreaking tandem that main-evented Survivor Series against John Cena & The Rock. And as long as The Rapping Superstar can remember that he and Carmella are on the same team (and that he is not actually trying to pin her anymore), this alliance could pose a serious problem for the defending Mixed Match Challenge winners.
An exciting new season of WWE Mixed Match Challenge streams live every week in the United States and for the first time in Germany, Mexico, Australia, France, Indonesia, Philippines, Spain, Thailand, Vietnam and Brazil.
