Wrestlemania 35 has left tons of fallouts to address that begins tonight with the Superstar Shakeup. This is one of the much-anticipated shows of an entire year that changes the landscape of both WWE Raw and Smackdown. Numerous superstars will get import visas from the blue brand to enter the flagship show. Also, we expect some major NXT superstars to make their debut on this special night to make it an overall eventful affair.
Apart from that, WWE needs to address the championship storylines. After a fun week from last week, the first feud for Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch over their championships should kick off on WWE Raw. Plus, Roman Reigns also awaits his next opponent after toppling the biggest resistance known as Drew McIntyre. We will also get to know about the fate of Intercontinental and tag team titles when the show airs from the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
WWE.com is now advertising this year’s edition of Superstar Shakeup with a tag of ‘international’ attached to it. There’s not much update available on why WWE is calling this Superstar Shakeup as an international event. Probably, more of NXT and NXT UK roster members will arrive on the main roster scene to alter the existing equation to a big extent. The speculation is that the brand split may get extinct from now on and superstars will get chance to compete on WWE Raw and Smackdown. We’ll see whether McMahon family comes up with such a breaking announcement on tonight.
The new WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch repelled an attack from Lacey Evans, last week on Raw. But she could come up with a counter-attack over on Smackdown when Lacey punched her into the face, all of a sudden. Well, a fuming Lynch should try to get redemption for this past Tuesday Night. This should also start a feud between the two culminating the first title defense for the first-ever dual women’s champion.
Speaking of champions, it leads us to Seth Rollins who is currently standing without a challenge. He won the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 35 but there will not be any Brock Lesnar demanding rematch since he is on a hiatus. So a new opponent will be waiting for him on WWE Raw. As per reports of Dave Meltzer, Drew McIntyre should be the one to challenge him in the first title defense at Money in the Bank.
Roman Reigns is the other marquee name of WWE Raw who does not have an opponent, either. WWE.com hinted that starting from tonight, he will also enter a new rivalry on the flagship show,
“After Reigns succeeded against The Scottish Psychopath in his first singles match since his battle with leukemia, the WWE Universe anxiously awaits his next move. Will Reigns look to challenge his Shield-brother Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship — the very title he was forced to relinquish in October — or does he have another conquest in mind?”
Meltzer also noted that Baron Corbin should be the next opponent waiting for Roman Reigns on WWE Raw. As much as WWE Universe does not want to see Corbin getting the spotlight, it is likely to happen after courtesy of his big win over Kurt Angle. We also anticipate learning the future of Finn Balor, Bobby Lashley, the new WWE Raw tag team champions when the first night of Superstar Shakeup emanates, tonight.
