Another team has been confirmed for WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge as it was announced today that Asuka would be teaming with The Miz in the single-elimination tournament.
Despite Asuka being a face and Miz being a heel, the storyline in the video where the team was revealed was that they were happy to be paired together and vowed to win.
The Miz will return to Raw tonight for the first time since November 20th. He lost the Intercontinental Championship to Roman Reigns on that episode and then took time off to film WWE Studios’ “The Marine 6: Close Quarters.”
Here’s the updated list of teams and participants for the tournament:
Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss
Finn Balor & Sasha Banks
Apollo Crews & Nia Jax
The Miz & Asuka
A male wrestler to be determined by fan vote
