Raw vs. Smackdown

Stars from two WWE brands, Raw and Smackdown, take on each other in Mixed Match Challenge, a 12-part Facebook series premiering tonight at 10 pm ET.

In tonight’s opening match, Raw’s Sasha Banks and Finn Bálor will face off against Smackdown’s Shinsuke Nakamura and Natalya.

The winner of the single-elimination tag-team tournament will receive $100,000 for charity. Each Tuesday night episode will run for just 20 minutes, immediately following USA Network’s weekly two-hour WWE Smackdown. Tonight’s premiere, though, also competes directly with a USA special celebrating 25 years of WWE Raw, which regularly runs on the cable network Mondays at 8 pm.

Mixed Match Challenge will be available over the new Facebook Watch platform. If you don’t know how to access that, the WWE has provided a handy tutorial video!

You can also watch the show, and get more info, by visiting the Mixed Match Challenge Facebook page.
