Vince McMahon is “pulling out all the stops” for the new Facebook Watch show, WWE Mixed Match Challenge.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, McMahon wants to impress Facebook’s top executives and get attention of other streaming services so that WWE can have more doors open to them in 2019 when their TV contract with NBC Universal expires.
Mixed Match Challenge is not expected to tie into on-going storylines on RAW or SmackDown.
Nix Jax and Enzo Amore are expected to team up on the show and it’s very possible that other real-life couples such as Jimmy Uso & Noami and Lana & Rusev team up on the show.
Facebook will be paying WWE for the distribution rights to the show, which will have a 12 week run. WWE wants to see how the revenue pans out for this show.
