This has been teased for a couple of weeks but everyone was baffled by what it actually was gonna be that I don't think anyone posted anything further beyond "There is gonna be Facebook show"

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.

The unique storylines for Mixed Match Challenge will continue between episodes across WWE’s Facebook Pages with short-form videos and social content. WWE will also promote the series across its extensive digital and social footprint, including a new Facebook Watch show Page dedicated to Mixed Match Challenge.

Facebook and WWE today announced a new in-ring series, Mixed Match Challenge, that will stream live in the U.S. exclusively on Facebook on Tuesday nights beginning Jan.16 at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT. 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.

Does this mean RAW and SmackDown! will be in head-to-head competition on a show other than Survivor Series?

Does this mean 205 will be taped early like Main Event or taped NXT style?  Taping the upcoming house shows would be pretty cool and may bolster attendance.

No one is 100% sure yet

Some people are trying to claim that they could still do 205 Live at 10:30 (since MM is only 30 minutes) and lord that would just be an even bigger disaster

It will be interesting to see if they team up couples like An Uso/Naomi and Rusev/Lana or if they split them up.

Also, we may finally get the NXT Dream Team of Bayley and Balor.

Or you could say nightmare for Aaron Solow

Just when I think we're done with the speculation this comes up.  I would say poor Aaron but he seems to be doing quite nicely with his recent title win.

First of all I want to wish a happy Rusev Day to all of you.  As far as this new series goes,  I'm intrigued. I got the alert early this morning I wasn't up yet so I was reading it half-asleep like "WTF is this" but it sounds like it could be entertaining. 

In a perfect world 205 Live is moved to Full Sail and they tape it there but probably won't happen.

I can't see them not taping 205 Live at Smackdown because it's a lot more cost efficient then setting up a whole new taping for it.
