Mixed Match Challenge Week 8

Geno here. Let us do this.

The greatest due in history is back, as Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss make their entrance. Big cheer for Braun. They did the spot where she had to jump up to give him a high five.

Out next was the married couple. They’ve been down with the glow since day one ish, from what I hear. This seems to confirm it.

Strowman & Bliss vs. Uso & Naomi

They did a funny bit before the match started where Bliss pushed Naomi, who returned the favor, and then Strowman picked up the Raw women’s champion and held her with one arm while she kicked wildly.

Naomi gave her husband a kiss for good luck and then a hug, like she felt really bad he had to actually wrestle Braun. Before he could go over, she stopped him and hugged him again. “I love you,” she said.

Finally, Strowman went over and grabbed him up. Jimmy actually got the upper hand for a second but Braun’s a monster and he took control pretty quick. Bliss was great during all this, elated on the apron. She even did a throat slash and told Strowman to end it.

Before he could do so, Jimmy jumped off his shoulder and tagged out to Naomi.

Naomi started trash talking Alexa, doing her thing. Bliss got pissed at this and smacked her in the face. Braun screamed “SHE JUST SLAPPED THE TASTE OUT YOUR MOUTH.” Then he said “I’M GOING TO DO THE SAME TO YOU, BOY” to Jimmy. That got a big response from the crowd.

Naomi regained control and Jimmy made sure Alexa couldn’t tag out so his wife could get more offense in. At one point, Bliss was using the apron to break a hold. Jimmy again ensured Alexa couldn’t tag out, rushing across the ring to attack Strowman and superkick him multiple times to get him off the apron. It worked too.

Bliss managed to get the upper hand for a second and went up to the top rope. Naomi kicked her off and Braun caught her on the outside. That, of course, led to a moment between the two. They think each other are cute and all. Alexa smiled and so did Braun, but he came to his senses and put her back in the ring.

Then, Naomi knocked her off the apron again and this time she landed on Strowman and he fell to his back. She was straight up straddling him. He didn’t know what to do. She stood up and apologized while Jimmy poked fun and laughed at him. So Braun ran him down and threw him into the barricade.

Beth Phoenix suggested Alexa is manipulating Braun to get what she wants, and she’s a woman so she knows. Corey Graves mentioned he also knows women and he thinks it’s real. “That is not the look of love,” Beth told him.

Meanwhile, Bliss was trying to pin Naomi but failing. She turned her attention to taunting Jimmy and paid the price for it. Naomi regained control and got a couple near falls. “Braun, do something,” Alexa screamed out to him. He finally got in the ring and ran over to Jimmy, knocking him off the apron. He followed up by hitting the Running Powerslam through the announce table at ringside. Naomi was devastated seeing this in the ring, and Alexa took advantage by rolling her up for the pinfall and victory.
