WWE News: Sasha Banks out of Mixed Match Challenge due to injury, Mickie James to team with Bobby Lashley

There is another change to the season two roster of the Mixed Match Challenge because Sasha Banks has been removed as the partner of Bobby Lashley due to Banks suffering an injury. Banks will be replaced by 6-time former WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James. There’s no word yet on what injury Banks is dealing with. When we know more, I’ll add it to this post. I was told that James found out about it yesterday.

The reason I said there’s another change is because earlier this week, Alexa Bliss was replaced by Ember Moon as Braun Strowman’s partner. The Strowman and Moon team defeated Kevin Owens and Natalya on Tuesday’s first episode of the second season.

Banks tweeted her support for the new team:

Here’s the video of Cathy Kelly breaking the news of Banks’ injury.

You can go to the WWE Mixed Match Challenge Facebook page to vote on the team name of Bobby Lashley and Mickie James, who are good friends going back to their OVW days in the mid-2000s. Lashley and James will face the team of Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox on Tuesday’s edition of Mixed Match Challenge. I guess I have a new favorite team to root for in the tournament.
