What's the story?

Recently, Sami Zayn can be seen trying to make SmackDown LIVE the Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, or Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens show alongside his 'Best Friend' Kevin Owens. But an absent SmackDown LIVE Superstar has hinted that they would like to team up with Sami Zayn for the upcoming WWE Mixed Match Challenge.

In case you didn't know...

The WWE has announced a new show that will air exclusively on Facebook Watch called the Mixed Match Challenge. It will feature mixed tag-teams made up of male and female wrestlers from both the RAW and SmackDown LIVE rosters, with the teams competing in a knockout style tournament.

Since its announcement, Finn Balor and Bayley have teased teaming up, as have Nia Jax and Braun Strowman. Samoa Joe has also caused controversy by calling whoever he teams up with - a 'towel attendant'. Now, a new pair is being teased.

The heart of the matter

Becky Lynch may have been off of WWE television nursing injuries sustained at the hands of the Riott Squad (or filming the new Marine film alongside The Miz) but she's still been keeping her finger on the WWE pulse and is very excited for the Mixed Match Challenge, but there's only one person she wants to team up with.

Becky mentions that The Miz has left the set of The Marine 6 early to get a head start on preparing for the Mixed Match Challenge because he know's he'll probably have to face Becky Lynch in the ring, however, Becky knows that she wants to team up with Sami Zayn.

"Many a great option, many a great option, but there's one person coming to mind and that is Sami Zayn. Now Sami you and I have been on very similar paths, we were on the independant circuit together, we were wrestling in front of crowds of eleven people in Italy when were just teenagers, we made our Wrestlemania debut together, but recently I have to say that I haven't been the greatest fan of your actions but I can still see the good in you Sami, and together we can be the Mixed Match Champions of the world, and wouldn't that be some straight fire."

What's next?

We're still waiting for the teams to be announced, but there's been plenty of speculation caused by the WWE Superstars on Twitter themselves. However, current rumours detail the plans for at least three of the final mixed tag-teams with Nia Jax and Enzo Amore set to team together, as well as real-life partners Rusev and Lana and Naomi and Jey Uso

Author's take

I'm excited about the Mixed Match Challenge, but I'll be even more excited about it if Becky Lynch and Sami Zayn are made official.
