Undefeated teams are set to face off on next week’s episode of Mixed Match Challenge.
Not only undefeated during this season, the winning streak of Asuka & The Miz began when they won the inaugural edition of Mixed Match Challenge by going unbeaten in four matches. Last April in the finals, Asuka and Charlotte Flair were on opposing sides days before their title match at WrestleMania.
Next week, Asuka & Miz face Flair & WWE Champion AJ Styles — who are also undefeated in the second season. Flair had a different tag team partner in season one as she teamed with Bobby Roode and lost to Asuka & Miz in the finals.
Two more undefeated teams meet in the Raw block when Mickie James & Bobby Lashley face Ember Moon & Braun Strowman next week. Both teams were hastily put together when injuries reshaped the tournament.
Alexa Bliss was supposed to re-form her team with Braun Strowman, but Ember Moon instead teamed with Strowman when Bliss had to be replaced in the tournament. Replacing Sasha Banks in the tournament, Mickie James partnered with Bobby Lashley.
On last night’s episode from the United Kingdom, James & Lashley extended their winning streak as they defeated Bayley & Finn Balor. Also on the episode streamed live from Manchester, England, Naomi & Jimmy Uso defeated Carmella & R-Truth in a match that involved a rap battle and dance breaks.
Though further details weren’t provided, WWE uploaded a post-show video where they noted that Bayley & Balor had advanced to the Mixed Match Challenge playoffs despite their loss.
