Bobby Lashley and Mickie JAmes def. Bobby Roode and Natalya
For those unaware, Lashley and Roode actually feuded over the TNA World Heavyweight Championship years ago, and although they had chemistry back then and they worked well together here, their characters are pretty boring at the moment and thus this lacked any spark whatsoever. The stuff with Natalya and James was fine, too, but as an overall package, this was a weak outing and I don't blame the crowd for not getting into it.
The Miz and Asuka def. Rusev and Lana
Despite no longer teasing tension during their rivalry with Aiden English, Rusev and Lana continue to lose, but then again, there was no reason for them to win here considering Miz and Asuka went undefeated last season and won the whole thing, so they should win as many matches as they can this season as well. As a match, this was enjoyable at certain points and I liked the interaction between Miz and Lana, but it hardly made up for Miz vs. Rusev lasting all of 60 seconds on SmackDown Live earlier in the night.
The upside to Mixed Match Challenge in Season 1 as well as earlier this season was that the competitors had more freedom to do what they wanted and therefore have more fun than they normally would on Raw or SmackDown Live. That still seems to be the case to an extent, but these matches aren't must-see by any means and the wrestling isn't worth going out of your way to check out. Granted, both bouts were decent, but this was easily one of the weaker editions of the show in some time.
