Mixed Match Challenge
Asuka & The Miz vs Big-E & Carmella
Miz starts the match off with Big-E, Miz going for a standing switch only for Big-E to grind against him and hip toss him, then puts him in an abdominal stretch and uses Miz like a bongo drum. Miz tags Asuka in and she gets in the ring, but Carmella isn't as enthusiastic and reluctantly gets in the ring with Asuka. E gives Carmella a giant Styrofoam L and Asuka seems to like it at first before she changes her mind and rips it up before yelling. Carmella then quickly backs away and tags E back in. Big-E comes in and suplexes Miz repeatedly before Miz comes back and gets a quick two count that Carmella breaks up. Miz and Asuka do the Daniel Bryan-esque kicks before E slams Miz down, but Miz is quick to drop E with a boot. Miz tries to keep the bigger E grounded before he comes back, but Miz drops him again and puts him in headlock before Miz misses a splash in the corner. Asuka tags herself in and goes after Carmella before Carmella drops her with a kick, then Asuka comes back with a flurry of strikes before locking in her new signature flying armbar. Asuka then cranks on the armbar as Carmella struggles to get out of it and is forced to tap for the win.
Winner: Asuka & The Miz defeat Big-E & Carmella via submission when Asuka submits Carmella with an armbar to advance to the next round of the Mixed Match Challenge.
