WWE’s Mixed Match Challenge gets its first reluctant team in Nia Jax and Apollo Crews

The hits just keep on coming for Nia Jax.

Not only did she not get either of her choices for Mixed Match Challenge partners, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle has saddled her with THREE she doesn’t want!

Welcome to Titus Worldwide, Nia...

...she may be Bliss blocked, but at least she’s getting more colors for her weave?

WWE just announced Crews as the replacement for Enzo Amore this morning (apparently because illness kept Zo from being there when they filmed these team reveal videos on Monday, Jan. 1). Honestly, it’s a pretty fun audible - I’m looking forward to Titus O’Neil annoying the crap out of Nia for however long this team lasts in Facebook Watch series, which debuts on Jan. 16.

Plus, Dana Brooke finally gets something to do as official statistician!

Six teams down, six to go...

Lana and Rusev
Finn Balor and Sasha Banks
Charlotte Flair and Bobby Roode
Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss
Jimmy Uso and Naomi

Yet to be paired:

Raw - Alicia Fox, Asuka, Bayley, Goldust, The Miz and Samoa Joe
SmackDown - Becky Lynch, Carmella, Natalya, Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura and The New Day
