‘WWE Mixed Match Challenge 2×06’ Review

by Nathan Favel


Welcome to this week’s Mixed Match Challenge review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and I have a bad feeling about this.

Match #1: Finn Bálor & Bayley def. Bobby Roode & Natalya

The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

In a WWE MMC showdown between Raw tandems, Natalya emerged in one of Bobby Roode’s robes, signaling some strong Team Paws comradery as they prepared to take on the impressive team of B’N’B. After Bayley politely refused her friend Nattie’s toy cat ears, Bálor and Roode decided to try on each other’s gear and catchphrases. As they removed this attire, Natayla and Bayley took over, feeling each other out in a battle for momentum which ended when Roode tagged himself in to prevent Natayla from diving outside the ring after Bayley and led to an intense back-and-forth between him and Bálor. As the action continued, Natalya broke up a pin attempt between the guys, promoting Bayley to jump over the men to get to her and send her out of the ring. Not to be outdone, Nattie dragged Bayley out, and they took each other out with a double Clothesline. As they did, Roode decided to attempt his opponent’s finishing maneuver, the Coup de Grace, but Finn moved out of the way at the last second and climbed the ropes to hit one of his own for the huge win. With their victory, Bálor & Bayley grabbed an important second victory, which keeps them in good position in the WWE MMC competition at 2-1. With their loss, Team Pawz dropped to 0-3.

My Take: 2 out of 5 – They tried on each other’s clothes. Screw this $#!@. I get that this show doesn’t matter, but do we have to piss on the sport every time one of these matches airs? Every person here deserves better and the only reason this match got more than a 0 is because what little wrestling that was here was good.

Match #2: The Miz & Asuka def. Jimmy Uso & Naomi

The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

In the second match of the night, friends Asuka and Naomi started things out for their teams, but their matchup soon gave way to a dance and a hug between them – prompting Miz to say there is “no hugging in wrestling!” Day One Glow and Asuka begged to differ, though, and they tried to get a group hug between the four. The A-Lister responded by heading for the hills, but Jimmy cut him off and threw Miz into the ring before picking up his opponent in a bear hug, sparking a fierce back-and-forth. Naomi and Asuka soon reentered, but when Naomi was on the attack, Miz pulled his partner out of the way to save her. Minute after minute, the intensity increased between the four competitors. Then, in the final moments, Jimmy looked ready to dive outside the ring at Miz, but The A-Lister caught him with a forearm at the last second. And as Naomi took out Asuka outside the ring, Miz seized the moment and climbed into the squared circle to hit the Skull-Crushing Finale on Uso for the victory.

My Take: 2 out of 5 – This sucked too. The Miz being the only one to object to how bad this match was is a sign of how #$%&@! up the WWE is. Do you really want to go watch this match? Why?

Final Verdict: 1/5

I want my money back.
