The WWE is bringing back its popular WWE Mixed Match Challenge for a second season on Facebook Watch.

Last season, the series created some huge fan favorite teams with Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss possibly leading the way. This season, that team is back together again and will be joined by some familiar teams and some new faces.

Returning for the second season outside of Strowman and Bliss are The Miz and Asuka, Rusev and his wife Lana, Jimmy Uso and his wife Naomi, and Finn Balor and Bayley.

Joining the fun will be the teams of Sasha Banks and Bobby Lashley, R-Truth and Carmela, Alicia Fox and Jinder Mahal, AJ Styles and Charlotte Flair, and Kevin Owens and Natalya.

As with the first season, the WWE Mixed Match Challenge doesn’t care about faces and heels and are just putting random teams together and creating storylines for the show outside the WWE main storylines and canon.
