It’s official! WWE announced on Wednesday that they’ll be producing a new 12-week series on Facebook called Mixed Match Challenge.
According to WWE.com, the show will debut on January 16 and stream live on Facebook Watch when SmackDown Live goes off the air.
We first reported last month that the two sides were in talks and, due to the time Mixed Match Challenge will air, there’s been talk of moving 205 Live‘s weekly taping to before SD Live.
The announcement explains, “The 12-episode series will air on Facebook Watch and feature WWE Superstars from both the Raw and SmackDown LIVE rosters competing in a single-elimination mixed tag-team tournament to win $100,000 to support the charity of their choice.”
The release continues, “Each 20-minute episode will reflect a progressive approach to production, with elements optimized for mobile consumption, experimentation and social interaction, including the ability for the WWE Universe to engage with Superstars during the show. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to select matchups, match stipulations and more, on Facebook.”
Participating teams will be announced on January 4.
