- On a sidenote before the results, it appears the live stream of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge on Facebook Watch may only be available to visitors located in the United States. At least that is what I figure based on my preliminary investigation and Twitter exploding. If this is true, it would be a pretty gigantic fail by WWE as I don't believe this important piece of information was ever communicated in the weeks leading up to this tournament. I have reached out to WWE for a clarifying statement, will post if they respond.
Renee Young and Byron Saxton opened the show as the hosts of the show. The commentary team was a three-person booth with Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Beth Phoenix.
Several promos from social media proceeded the match.

Shinsuke soon fired up, but got caught slipping by Finn. Balor went his finisher, but Nattie made the save.
