See all the WWE roster changes in the superstar shakeup

Author

13 April, 2017

Two new superstars to the women's division were introduced to Smackdown LIVE last night: Former RAW champ Charlotte and Tamina.

We won't know how the two shows measure up until tonight's episode of SmackDown.

The other hot rumor heading into WWE tapings this week involved AJ Styles reuniting with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to reform The Club.

Bray Wyatt goes to RAW, The New Day goes to Smackdown. Zayn getting a fresh start could immediately push him to the the top of the card, and it would not shock anyone if Sami ended up having the better run on his respective brand. After all, Raw got the Hardys and Kurt Angle.

Mickie James and Alexa Bliss arrive on Raw as part of the Superstar Shake-up, immediately causing chaos with Raw Women's Champion Bayley, Sasha Banks and Nia Jax. Heading to Smackdown, this may seem counterproductive since they were introduced on Raw, but I really see The Revival fitting in better on Smackdown, so send them over just a week after their debut. Their imminent arrival should be a challenge, seeing how most of the big stars on team Blue have moved to the Red show. Instead, the WWE writers may have felt that having the group intact is pretty good for business and they have only been transported to the blue brand. Maryse has been a very valuable addition to The Miz's persona and he's looking forward to seeing them work on RAW, because he thinks they're so very close to reaching the top of the mountain in WWE. Given how badly that one failed on the big stage, it would make sense to go back to what was working - the prima donna who sang his own entrance music.

The Fan's Podcast have posted a video on Twitter showing a fan being escorted out of the Smackdown crowd proudly holding a "JBL BULLIED ME" sign. The tag-team division on Tuesdays is pathetic, with the Usos getting the titles nearly by default since American Alpha couldn't get over in the role.

The New Day vs. With this roster, it's bound to be an exciting year in new stories and new feuds, so let's see how things shake up on Monday's Raw.

I loved this week's Smackdown Live ... and not just because David Otunga is gone. The Usos won and after the match, Team Alpha was attacked by Epico and Primo who were from Monday Night Raw.

The number was likely helped somewhat by the fact that highly rated CBS dramas NCIS and Bull aired repeats opposite SmackDown and NBC's The Voice was a clip show on Tuesday. The Superstar Shakeup that was initiated by Vince McMahon didn't only give opportunities to its talent but also a chance for the fans to see some of the stars compete in other brands.

We kick off SmackDown Live with its first acquisition: the United States Champion, Kevin Owens. SmackDown has a dearth of main-eventers right now and Payback is still three weeks away, meaning a title match for Styles is even further down the line.
