WWE Mixed Match Challenge Season 2 Winners
Season 2 of WWE Mixed Match Challenge climaxed last night at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs with R-Truth and Carmella reigning supreme over Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox in the finals of the tournament.
R-Truth and Carmella are now officially the 30th entrants in their respective Royal Rumble Matches on January 27. The tournament victory has given the always entertaining-always ripped Superstar a new platform to shine while exploring his newfound chemistry with The Princess of Staten Island.
First Promo For Royal Rumble 2019
WWE released the first official promo for it’s upcoming and first pay-per-view of 2019, Royal Rumble. The show takes place on January 27 from Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, US. The only singles match that has been confirmed for the PPV (as of this writing) is Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Braun Strowman for the WWE Universal Championship.
Ronda Rousey Defends Her “Bad Reputation” Post-TLC
Ronda Rousey successfully retained the RAW Women’s Championship against Nia Jax last night in a highly physical matchup.
Despite her ‘part’ for TLC being over, “Rowdy” interfered during the Triple Threat SmackDown Women’s Championship and tipped over a ladder holding Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair as payback for their November attacks. Asuka capitalized on this opportunity and went on to capture the title.
Rousey received mixed reaction throughout the night but she didn’t seem to be bothered with her newfound “bad reputation”.
The Phenomenal Stat
Last night’s TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs marked the first time “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles was the challenger in the WWE Championship match at a pay-per-view event since Elimination Chamber 2017.
Styles suffered defeat at the hands of champion “new” Daniel Bryan despite putting up a great fight at the SAP Center in San Jose.
Styles will presumably be part of the 30-Man Elimination Match at Royal Rumble on January 27, 2019.
