WWE Mixed Match Challenge 2×10′ Review

by Nathan Favel


Welcome to this week’s review of Mixed Match Challenge, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and Dean Stockwell is a handsome man. Dean’s mustache is bigger than my Grandma’s beard.

Match #1: Alicia Fox & Jinder Mahal def. Bobby Roode & Natalya

The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox, who didn’t even have a win heading into Week 10 of Mixed Match Challenge, miraculously pulled off a huge victory over Bobby Roode & Natalya. As a result, they live to see another day when the WWE MMC playoffs begin next week. In contract, Bobby Roode & Natalya have unfortunately failed to secure a playoff position and are now heading home. Match highlights included an intense opening exchange between Roode and Mahal that nearly saw The Modern Day Maharaja suffer a Glorious DDT that was anything but peaceful, Fox avoiding The Queen of Harts’ Sharpshooter before grounding her third-generation opponent with a vicious attack that included a beautiful bridge suplex, and Fox getting so caught up in Shanti that she allowed Roode to tag back into the action. Then, in the final moments of the contest, The Singh Brothers and Fox emerged to attempt a distraction. And while Natalya took care of Fox and The Glorious One laid out the Singhs, the commotion allowed Mahal to hit the Khallas for the huge victory.

My Take: 2.5 out of 5 – This was solid match that didn’t have any damn dancing, so I liked it.

Match #2: (Main Event) R-Truth & Carmella def. Rusev & Lana

The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

In a stunning Mixed Match Challenge moment, R-Truth & Carmella snuck into the playoffs after scoring their first victory of the season against the husband/wife team of Rusev & Lana. And in a sad moment for Rusev Day, Rusev and Lana are headed home. Match highlights included both teams involving the crowd in a chant-off (What’s Up! vs. Lana Day!), The Bulgarian Brute and The Ravishing Russian gaining an advantage by attacking their opponents during their dance break, Lana getting the upper hand with a vicious assault, Rusev taking out Truth from behind while Lana was trying to tag in and punishing Truth inside and outside the ring, and Truth launching a counterattack when Rusev and Lana were psyching themselves up. Then, in the final moments, Lana attacked Truth, but her onslaught opened the door for Carmella to use the chaos to kick Lana as she was getting back in the ring and get the 1-2-3.

My Take: 1 out of 5 – This had dancing, so I hated it.

Final Verdict: 2/5

Vince is a sick son of a #!%@&. Vince knows that people hate the dancing, yet he puts it in anyway. Well, at least this show is over in a half an hour.
