Season two of Mixed Match Challenge came to an end at TLC tonight.
Carmella & R-Truth vs. Alicia Fox & Jinder Mahal in the Mixed Match Challenge finals opened the TLC main card and also streamed live on Facebook Watch. Carmella submitted Fox to win the tournament.
By winning Mixed Match Challenge, Carmella and R-Truth will enter their respective Royal Rumble matches at number 30 next month. WWE had also been hyping that the winning team would receive “an all-expenses paid vacation to anywhere in the world,” and that storyline culminated after tonight’s finals. It was revealed that R-Truth had selected WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut for their vacation.
While this season of Mixed Match Challenge was plagued by injuries and replacement partners, Carmella & R-Truth and Mahal & Fox stayed intact throughout. They were winless during the round-robin portion of the tournament before each team won a match to make the playoffs.
