WWE TLC 2018 Predictions (8/12):
2018 Mixed Match Challenge Tournament Finals: Alicia Fox & Jinder Mahal vs. Carmella & R-Truth
So, let me get this straight. The winners of the tournament each get the number 30 slot in their respective Royal Rumble matches next month. And these are the two teams they land on? When you have Miz (who isn’t even on the show and that’s a crime in itself) and Asuka, Hawkins and Moon, Hardy and Flair, or even Balor and Bayley, these are the four superstars left? So strange. At first, I thought it would bring some main attention to the entire tournament and get people hyped for something like this again. But I don’t think this match is going to last very long. It’s difficult to pick, too, because I’m not sure who the last entrant in each Rumble is going to be. Mahal is someone they give stupid wins to. Just look at both of his title wins in the past years. But Fox is so off the radar, it would be such an underwhelming choice to cap off her match. While Carmella isn’t super exciting either, she’s arguably more successful and would make a much better final entrant, in my eyes. However, they often have entrants get attacked by others who aren’t in the match, and those guys take the slot instead. I could see them doing that with Truth. They have a hysterical talk show on Smackdown, good chemistry together as a team, and I feel like that’s an easy way to write Truth out of the Rumble, in favor for a heel to take that slot.
PREDICTION: Carmella & R-Truth
