Sorry Bayley fans. Depending how they work it, Raw’s second team announced for the Mixed Match Challenge could have one of the best entrances of the tournament. Today (Jan. 4) GM Kurt Angle brought Sasha Banks into his office to reveal who her partner would be in the upcoming Facebook Watch bracket.
Then Curt Hawkins showed up but after the fake out, Finn Balor smiled his was into the room. Joining the previously announced teams of Braun Strowman-Alexa Bliss and Bobby Roode-Charlotte Flair, Balor and Banks have now officially paired up for the tourney.

It’s still unclear if the Mixed Match Challenge will follow the current WWE canon when it comes to feuds but Balor and Banks make for a cool face team with high flying abilities.
This past week on Raw, Balor rejoined up with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows while Banks has spent the past few weeks going back and forth with Absolution.
With 20 wrestlers still left in the talent pool before the Jan. 16 tournament premieres on Facebook, who would you like to see paired up to fill out the remaining Raw side of the Mixed Match Challenge?
Alicia Fox, Asuka, Bayley, Goldust, Nia Jax, The Miz, Samoa Joe and whoever replaces Enzo Amore, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Jimmy Uso, Lana, Naomi, Natalya, Rusev, Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura and The New Day
