Sami Zayn and Becky Lynch To Team In WWE Mixed Match Challenge

The list of teams for WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge is now pretty much set.

WWE announced two more teams from SmackDown LIVE today. Shinsuke Nakamura will be paired with Natalya in the tournament, and Sami Zayn will team with Becky Lynch.

In their announcement video (where both were excited), Lynch said they’d bring back the good Zayn, but Zayn replied that he’s the same person she’s always known and their team will bring out the best in Lynch.

That leaves Carmella and either Big E, Kofi Kingston, or Xavier Woods as the final pairing. There will be a fan vote to determine which member of The New Day will be wrestling in Mixed Match Challenge.

Elias was revealed as Bayley’s partner earlier today after a right foot injury forced Samoa Joe out of the tournament.

Here’s the updated list of teams for the show:


Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss

Finn Balor & Sasha Banks

Apollo Crews & Nia Jax

The Miz & Asuka

Goldust & Alicia Fox

Elias & Bayley

Bobby Roode & Charlotte Flair
