I vaguely wonder what Fox can get out of Mahal.

How do they not include Almas and Vega?

But this can't be 100% correct as the numbers don't work out with 10 teams all facing one another.

I would guess that if they're doing round robin, they split them into 2 divisions, Raw and Smackdown, 5 teams in each.  Each team faces all other teams in their division, which would be 20 matches.  Then they could have the top 4 in each division advance to a seeded single-elimination tournament - that's another 7 matches, with the last show being devoted entirely to the finals.

That's way too close to, like, Japan style tournaments. But it would be awesome.

Justice for Team Little Big!

The prospect of WWE announcers breaking down something more complex than a single-elimination tournament is kinda terrifying tbh.  We'll see.

I do like 2 matches per episode. There was a lot of padding in season 1 yo get to 20 minutes.

Truth/Carmella and KO/Natalya stand out from the new teams. Balor/Bayley have form. Remember when they copied each other's entrances?

AJ/Charlotte is basically the mixed-tag equivalent of the Megapowers.

There had better be about 500 pictures of KO falling in love with all of Natalya's cats. 
 

That's all I want from this. (Oh, and for him to corrupt her til she powerbombs Ronda on the ring apron.)

While Balor & Bayley was the team that should have been created, it was funny that last years team was Balor & Sasha Banks.   God I hope Corey Graves isn't doing it this year because we already know what 99% of the match commentary will be spent on then

Poor Buddy Murphy. How long must he endure Braun trying to worm his way into Alexa's pants?

Well based on her Instagram, it seems the logical choice would be Sasha and Kalisto.  But I wonder if whoever is running this even knows who is in 205 Live now

Who cares, let her just name the teams:

She clearly fell into the same void that The Bar only just escaped from
