The WWE appears to be hinting at a possible romance angle between WWE Raw stars Goldust and Mandy Rose, posting a video to its YouTube channel in which the Golden One asks the Absolution member out on a dinner date.
The two are partners in the Mixed Match Challenge and will battle the husband-wife team of Jimmy Uso and Naomi from SmackDown in the fourth installment of the Facebook Watch show next week. The winners of the tournament earn $100,000 for their charity. Rose was named as a replacement for Alicia Fox, who was Goldust’s original partner. She had to bow out due to injury.
Here is the video:
This is the second romantic angle WWE has played up during the Mixed Match Challenge. Braun Strowman and Raw Women’s Champ Alexa Bliss both had complimentary things to say about each other after their win this week against Sami Zayn and Becky Lynch. Here is a video of that:
In the other MMC matches so far, Raw’s Intercontinental Champ The Miz and Asuka defeated Big E and Carmella, and Raw’s Finn Balor and Sasha Banks defeated Shinsuke Nakamura and Natalya.
In the final two first round matches, Raw’s Elias and Bayley will face SmackDown’s other husband-wife team, Lana and Rusev, and Raw’s Apollo Crews and Nia Jax will face SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair and United States Champion Bobby Roode.
