The groundbreaking WWE Mixed Match Challenge Tournament begins tonight with an explosive showdown pitting Finn Bálor & Sasha Banks against Shinsuke Nakamura & Natalya, immediately following SmackDown LIVE at 10 ET/7 PT, exclusively on Facebook Watch.

Whether competing in the historic WWE Iron Man Match against Bayley at NXT TakeOver or inside Hell in a Cell against Charlotte Flair, the innovative Banks is the very definition of a trailblazer. And with the distinction of being the first-ever Universal Champion and the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history, Bálor is definitely cut from the same cloth as the four-time Raw Women’s Champion. Add to the mix their larger-than-life personas and you have a fierce combination capable of taking any team to task in WWE Mixed Match Challenge.

The explosive pairing of The Artist with The Queen of Harts will truly prove to be something special. A graduate of the infamous Hart Family Dungeon, as well as a former SmackDown Women’s and Divas Champion, Natalya has shown time and time again that her technical expertise is second-to-none. Mixed with the charismatic Strong Style of the two-time NXT Champion, this combination promises to unleash a tag team arsenal so dynamic, so explosive, that it could arguably rival that of the original Hart Foundation.

The winner of this inaugural tournament contest will advance to go head-to-head in the second round of WWE Mixed Match Challenge with the winner of the Week 2 match pitting The Miz & Asuka vs. Big E & Carmella.

In the weeks leading up to this landmark event, the 12 tandems of the Mixed Match Challenge have taken to social media to express their excitement. Most recently, The Queen of Harts presented The King of Strong Style with the jacket of her father, Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, which he wore when he won the Tag Team Championship.

See who reigns supreme in the explosive opening match in WWE Mixed Match Challenge, premiering tonight at 10 ET/7 PT, exclusively on Facebook Watch. Follow WWE Mixed Match Challenge on Facebook for more.
