WWE issued the following:
General Manager Daniel Bryan has revealed that SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso will team up with his wife Naomi in the unprecedented WWE Mixed Match Challenge tournament on Facebook Watch.
Both brilliant competitors possess dynamic personalities and have an explosive in-ring style. Jimmy is battled-tested as a tag team specialist, not only as one-half of the reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but also as a five-time overall Tag Team Champion. Not to be outdone, Naomi is a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion currently poised to enter the first-ever 30-Woman Over-the-Top Royal Rumble.
When you add in the natural chemistry of the loving married couple, something most teams in the tournament will have to struggle to develop in a short time, you end up with a recipe for WWE Mixed Match Challenge success that will definitely leave the WWE Universe feeling the glow!
Together, Jimmy Uso and Naomi will go to battle in a revolutionary tournament that will take place exclusively on Facebook Watch, where unlikely male-female WWE Superstar pairings will attempt to win $100,000 for a charity of their choice. Each showdown in the competition will follow traditional Mixed Tag Team Match rules: When tagged, male Superstars face off with the opposing team’s male competitor and female Superstars battle fellow female competitors.
