WWE released a video on Facebook on Tuesday with Renee Young and Byron Saxton announcing WWE Hall Of Famer Beth Phoenix as part of the commentary team for WWE’s first annual Mixed Match Challenge.
Featured below is the complete announcement that WWE issued today:
Beth Phoenix announced for WWE Mixed Match Challenge commentary team
As revealed by newly-announced WWE Mixed Match Challenge hosts Renee Young and Byron Saxton on Facebook Live today, WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix will join Michael Cole and Corey Graves on the announce team for the Facebook Watch exclusive show, starting Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 10 ET/ 7 PT.
Few female competitors have dominated their division quite as convincingly as Phoenix. The former Women’s Champion ripped through anyone in her path and never failed to draw gasps from the WWE Universe, whether she was lifting Melina and Mickie James over her shoulder at the same time, eliminating The Great Khali from the 2002 Royal Rumble Match or Glam Slamming Eve from the top rope at the 2011’s Survivor Series.
The Glamazon will certainly provide a unique perspective on the ground-breaking Facebook Watch show, beginning Jan. 16 at 10 ET/ 7 PT.
— Meanwhile, WWE Raw GM Kurt Angle announced via Twitter that he will be replacing Kurt Angle in the upcoming WWE Mixed Match Challenge. The reason Angle gave is Amore’s current illness (flu), even though the MMC isn’t scheduled to begn for another two weeks.
