Shinsuke Nakamura and Natalya partner up for Mixed Match Challenge

SmackDown has some catching up to do, and after some drama surrounding Raw’s last Mixed Match Challenge team announcement, the blue brand is here with one of their final three reveals.


Natalya seems more excited that she didn’t end up paired with Lana’s husband or Kevin Owens’ best friend, so at least Shinsuke Nakamura came equipped with a cat-ified version of a catchphrase.

Ten down, two to go!

Lana and Rusev
Finn Balor and Sasha Banks
Charlotte Flair and Bobby Roode
Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss
Jimmy Uso and Naomi
Nia Jax and Apollo Crews
The Miz and Asuka
Goldust and Alicia Fox
Elias and Bayley

Will Becky Lynch be partnered with Sami Zayn, or does the Lasskicker end up with a New Day member? Does Carmella get a stack of flapjacks, or will she join The Yep Movement?

We should find out shortly, and then tune in next Tuesday (Jan. 16) for the premiere episode on Facebook Watch.
