Quite often, WWE Raw and Smackdown shows make changes to the banners on the official website, hinting at the top names who would be carrying the brands. Following Wrestlemania 37, a new season has begun that should carry us through the summertime of 2021. So new banners for all the brands have been put up revealing who the management considers being the top names.
We can also assume that a few superstars are expected to receive big pushes in due course, going by these posters. WWE RAW side now has Rhea Ripley and Bobby Lashley out in front hinting they are the superstars who could be on the top.
Alexa Bliss and Charlotte Flair are behind Ripley on the female side while AJ Styles and Drew McIntyre are standing behind the All-Mighty WWE Champion. The difference from the previous poster is that McIntyre has been pushed back while Randy Orton is no more there.
Moving on to the Smackdown brand, the new poster also features the two reigning champions out in front is WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio are behind Reigns on the male side while Sasha Banks and Bayley are standing behind Belair. All of these are likely to carry the blue brand in months to follow.
NXT posters also updated with WWE Raw & Smackdown
Apart from WWE Raw and Smackdown, WWE has also published banners for NXT and NXT UK brands alongside the 205 Live show. The reigning champions are at the forefront – Karrion Kross and Raquel Gonzalez for NXT. The trend is similar for NXT UK with WALTER and Kay Lee Ray. As for 205 Live, Monsoor and Tony Nese are in the middle of the posters who can expect to receive big pushes.
New graphics have been used for these new WWE Raw, Smackdown, and NXT division banners. It’s always interesting to see who gets the priorities in such banners. While it’s only an assumption of bigger pushes for the concerned ones, no one can really guarantee that these superstars will get a huge push, moving forward. But it’s good to know that they are certainly under the creative team’s good books.
