As we noted earlier, WWE Mixed Match Challenge will premiere next month on Facebook Watch. For those of you that don’t know what Facebook Watch is, it’s their attempt to compete with streaming services like Sling TV, Hulu, and YouTube TV. The service will feature exclusive clips and TV shows.
WWE Mixed Match Challenge will air on Tuesday night’s at 10 pm eastern after Smackdown Live. So, what does that mean for 205 Live? Mixed Match Challenge will be a 20-minute show without commercials. 205 Live will air sometime after 10:20 pm on the WWE Network. There was a pitch to tape 205 Live before Smackdown and air it on tape delay but, as of now, the show will continue to air live.
Mixed Match Challenge is scheduled for a 12-week run but the door is open to do more on Facebook Watch if things are considered to be a success.
Speaking of Mixed Matched Challenge, WWE posted these videos as part of the hype for the show:
