WWE has announced the first match of the kickoff show between the real life couple of Lana and Rusev versus Zelina Vega and Andrade Almas in a mixed tag team match. It is worth noticing that the “WWE Universe” will kickstart the show with chants of “Happy Rusev Day”.

The last a mixed tag team match took place was the debut of Ronda Rousey teaming up with Kurt Angle to take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at Wrestlemania. The match saw huge viewership on Youtube and also on the television. It will interesting to see if a mixed tag team match can set it up nicely for the main event at Summerslam.
