Another star is going to miss out on the Mixed Match Challenge this year due to injury. A neck and shoulder injury for Alexa Bliss ended Team Little Big, and now Sasha Banks will skip the WWE/Facebook Watch product due to injury. The Boss was set to team with Bobby Lashley. Mickie James will replace Sasha. While some think Mickie is just a random spot-filler, keen fans will know that both Mickie and Lashley are TNA/IMPACT alums. So, the name of the team should be pretty easy.
If Mickie and Lashley's team isn't called DOUBLE IMPACT then WWE really isn't listening to the fans.

There’s no word yet on Banks’ injury or how long she will be out. Like Bliss, this could be a cautionary measure to make sure Sasha take as few risks and bumps as she can. WWE most likely wants Banks ready to go for the WWE EVOLUTION to compete for the inaugural WWE Women’s Tag Belts with her frenemy Bayley.
We will keep you updated on Sasha’s Status and how the Mixed Match Challenge moves on.
