‘WWE Mixed Match Challenge 2×12’ Review

by Nathan Favel


Welcome to this week’s Mixed Match Challenge review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have more mixed tag action to show, so let’s see if was all worth the spent to watch it.

Match #1: R-Truth & Carmella def. Jeff Hardy & Charlotte Flair

The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

In the first Quarterfinal Match of the night, R-Truth & Carmella stunned the WWE Universe with perhaps the biggest upset in MMC history when they knocked off Jeff Hardy & Charlotte Flair to advance to the semifinals of the WWE MMC. Highlights of the match included Hardy and Truth engaging in a couple of competitive dance moves, Carmella miraculously stopping Flair’s attack for a moment with her earth-shattering scream, Truth and Carmella avoiding a Flair/Hardy charge through the ropes in order to take a dance break, Charlotte and Hardy making them pay for it with a subsequent attack, The Queen mocking Truth with some dances moves of her own, Mella catching Flair on the top rope with her legs and hurling her to the canvas and Flair breaking up Truth’s pin attempt. When Carmella heroically put herself between Hardy’s Swanton Bomb and her partner in the final moments, she helped Truth avoid Hardy’s aerial assault and opened the door for him to pick up the quick pin!

My Take: .5 out of 5 – There was so much dancing in this thing that I cut my wrists. You ever seen The Devil Miss Jones? It was like that except my punishment is that I have to review Mixed Match Challenge for all of eternity. Damn it.

Match #2: (Main Event) The Miz & Asuka def. Jimmy Uso & Naomi

The following is courtesy of WWE.com:

In the second Quarterfinal Match of the night, the winners of the first season of WWE Mixed Match Challenge The Miz & Asuka reigned supreme over the husband/wife team of Jimmy Uso & Naomi in a win-or-go-home WWE MMC Quarterfinal Match. Highlights included a strong back-and-forth between Asuka and Naomi, a fierce battle between the explosive Jimmy and the always-gloating Miz, The A-Lister refusing to tag Asuka into the match because he no longer trusted her, a fierce argument between Miz & Asuka and a rocking enzuigiri from Jimmy that allowed him to finally make the tag to his glowing wife. And during the final furious exchange between Asuka and Naomi, Miz broke up Naomi’s pin attempt and paid for it when Jimmy sent him crashing to the ringside floor. Asuka bumped him out as well and made Naomi tap with the excruciating Asuka Lock.

My Take: 2.5 out of 5 – This had wrestling and the wrestling turned out fine, so it get’s a 2.5. Merry Christmas.

Final Verdict: 1.5/5

When I review this show, I feel like a ventriloquist who’s stuck working with condom. I don’t know what the hell that means, but that’s what this show has done to me.
