Tonight’s episode of WWE Raw will be the stepping stone for the WWE creative to lay out the future feuds. The Superstar Shakeup awaits tonight creating major alterations on both WWE Raw and Smackdown roster. The Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada will be the host of this year’s edition that will witness big superstars shifting their home brands to have a fresh start just after Wrestlemania 35. At this time, we have received a huge update on two superstars interchanging brands.
As reported by Slice Wrestling, Finn Balor will be the one to shift on Smackdown from WWE Raw roster. This will not only create new opportunities for him but also help to rebuild world famous faction,
“WWE Is Discussing Sending Finn Bálor To #SmackDown During The #SuperStarShakeUp. This Will Open Up Bigger Opportunities For Bálor, Including The Possible Re-Formation Of The #BálorClub And Will Help WWE’s Blue Brand Gain Interest Before The Big Move To FOX.”
Smackdown moving to the FOX Sports brand will change the WWE programming a lot later this year. Priority of the officials will be to load up the blue brand’s roster to shatter the differences present on WWE Raw. The process should start with Superstar Shakeup 2019 where Finn Balor may move to the WWE Championship picture after changing the roster. Plus, after The Shield’s demolition, The Club is the most suitable counterpart to fill up the void of the trio.
We should also mention that the former leader of The Club, Finn Balor is the current Intercontinental Champion over on WWE Raw. If WWE removes him from the flagship show then there will be a void created in the mid-card picture. Hence, it’s assumable that the champion on the mid-card position over on Smackdown will also move from his home-brand.

So the source added that the current United States Champion Samoa Joe will enter WWE Raw at Superstar Shakeup. This will create some fresh feuds for the Destroyer moving forward making his title reign relevant. Joe debuted on Monday Nights back in 2017 before moving to Smackdown, last year. Now he will again come to the flagship show trying to dominate. We hope WWE creative keeps in-store solid booking for him following the shakeup happens, this week.
