WWE Superstar Sasha Banks Injured, Will Be Replaced in Facebook’s ‘Mixed Match Challenge’ (Video)

Mickie James is Bobby Lashley’s new tag-team partner

Another female WWE Superstar is out of Facebook Watch’s “Mixed Match Challenge” Season 2 due to injury: Sasha Banks will be replaced by Mickie James in the mixed tag-team tournament.

Banks, who was partnered with Bobby Lashley, is sidelined just three days after Alexa Bliss became too hurt to compete.

Watch a video below announcing the switch.

James and Lashley will take on the team of Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox on Tuesday.

Banks says she’ll be rooting the new duo on.


In this form of mixed-tag wrestling, the men wrestle the men and the women face off against the women. When one team tags its partner their opponents also swap spots in the ring and on the apron.

WWE’s “Mixed Match Challenge” streams live on Facebook Watch Tuesdays beginning at 10/9c, immediately following USA Network’s “SmackDown Live.” “MMC” airs a pre-show starting at 9:50 p.m. ET.
