Superstar Shakeup for Raw and Smackdown

Post by lanza218 » April 10th, 2017, 6:46 pm

Apollo already moved to RAW, good for him.

I think AJ, Elias Sampson, American Alpha and Lynch move to RAW

SD get Reigns, golden truth, def another NXT name as well, and New Day

Revival and Nakamura already debuted last week

I actually think Smackdown did well. You have:

Shinsuke Nakamura
AJ Styles
Kevin Owens
Randy Orton
Charlotte
New Day
Sami Zayn

In addition to guys like Corbin, Usos, American Alpha, John Cena (when he returns), etc.

Smackdown got:
WWE United States champion Kevin Owens.
Sami Zayn.
Epico and Primo.
Jinder Mahal.
Tamina
Charlotte.
Sin Cara.
Rusev & Lana
The New Day.

I thought the World Titles would be switching too since they put the WWE title match on Payback, so I guess that pretty much guarantees Randy beats Bray.

This creates room for SD to elevate new people like Nakamura and eventually Big E. I think this is really how it should be, as long as RAW doesn't wind up blowing it on some of the names they got since they obviously have less screen time to go around.

Agree. Long term prob great. Short term I think will hurt a tad. Bliss, Dean, Miz are a major blow. Owens is a steal. New Day. Zayn. Charlotte also great but will be tough to replace the talent lost. Esp Zayns whinny character. Get him over like in NXT.
