Here are this week’s results for the first round two match of the tournament.
Asuka and The Miz def. Finn Balor and Sasha Banks
This was an awesome match with four great talents combined into two great pairings. The match ended after The Miz countered Finn Bálor’s crossface submission into a pinfall seeing their team advance to the semifinals in week twelve of the competition.
Next week will see the team of Jimmy Uso and Naomi face off against Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman, which I’m sure will be another excellent match. Check back for the results and to see how the tournament bracket is shaping up!

I would also recommend venturing further than just the WWE Network, as there are gems out there with such teams as
Kana (Asuka) & Kenny Omega vs Masato Tanaka & Hiroku Shida, and other promotions based on mixed gender wrestling with great teams, most notably Joey Ryan and Candice LeRae.
