I like the Roode/Flair team a lot and this would be a decent way to start pushing him since he’s yet another guy who lost momentum when being called up from NXT.

Am I counting 11 teams here?  Are they finished announcing these or is someone getting a bye?

I like the Bobby Roode idea too.  Since Raw won Survivor Series, I suppose it would make sense for a Smackdown combination to win this.

I believe Big E won a legit fan vote amongst The New Day to get the final spot.

I enjoyed the match last night. Finn & Sasha had good chemistry and worked well together, Natalya and Nakamura not so much. I'm picking Sasha & FInn to win the whole ething

WWE will never do this, but they need to let the men and women wrestle each other instead of continually ruining the flow of the match by forcing tags to keep the same gender in the ring. If you want equality and you want to show that the women can work as good as the men, that's how to do it. It's all fake and men and women train together so why not? Again, I know it will never, ever happen in this environment though.

The first WWE guy that scoops a female up for a slam during one of those is likely aware he is subjecting himself to a future #metoo so I doubt they would want to do that style of match anyways.

Seriously that's always been the problem with mixed tags and why I have always skipped them.

In match #2 last night, The Miz and Asuka predictably dominated Big E and Carmella to advance. 

A couple of minutes before the finish, the ref went over to The Miz in the corner and loudly said "Asuka's going over" and Miz said "Yeah".  This was basically clearer than the commentators and everyone heard it and commented on it on Facebook.  I'm not even sure why the ref would have to tell Miz this.  Wouldn't Miz already know the finish?

That does seem odd.

And something that blatant had to be awful for anyone that still watches and invests in these matches. Like at least whisper...

Meltzer apparently reporting WWE aren't happy with the reaction this show is getting, and that it's not being taken as a serious part of the product. I'm not sure what they were expecting. Goofy tag teams trying to win money for charity isn't the stuff that gets any flavor of wrestling fan excited. And it seems that this is pretty late a night for the kids audience this seems to be aimed at.

They should have run something like a Japanese tournament with a title shot for the winner. That would have easily lived outside of the regular show bubble, but had something worth fighting for.
