WWE Superstar Shakeup process for 2019 has passed by with the first half on last night’s episode of WWE Raw. It was a one-way wave of the superstars towards the flagship brand to change the roster. A number of big names entered the scene eyeing to rule their respective divisions. We expect the fallouts of those imports on Smackdown at the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada should also be huge.
Speaking of which brings us to the biggest acquisition of WWE Raw from Smackdown Live. It is none other than AJ Styles. He was the franchise player of the blue brand which we used to dub as ‘the house that AJ Styles built’. But it looks like a new name will have to take care of it now that the former WWE Champion will be guarding off the red brand starting from last night. He already featured in action by teaming with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in a six-man tag team match.
Seth Rollins i.e. the Universal Champion is still on WWE Raw after the first night of Superstar Shakeup. As for the WWE Raw and Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, we assume she will be part of the red brand the blue brand at the same time. She is the most popular superstar of the entire roster and also the one who won the Wrestlemania 35 main-event match to create history. In the absence of Ronda Rousey, she will be running things on the women’s division, from now.
The other big acquisitions from Smackdown during Superstar Shakeup featured the likes of Rey Mysterio and The Miz. Both have been former world champions in the WWE who have a lot left in the tank to deliver, moving forward. Also, former women’s champion Naomi entered the scene who should be eyeing the title, once again.
The former Smackdown Tag Team Champions, The Usos is also a part of WWE Raw. No wonder why they lost their titles on the post-Wrestlemania episode of Smackdown. It was a dream match against the Hardy Boyz where the latter mentioned tag team bagged their eighth gold. For sure, WWE officials hosted this match in a short notice just to ensure the match takes place before The Usos shifts their home-brand.
Here’s the full list of superstars who found themselves on WWE Raw during the night I of Superstar Shakeup,
