Best of WWE Raw as the Superstar Shake-up kicks off

Share

The Superstar Shakeup, while it's a new take on the old "Draft" model, will bring a lot of new and exciting feud options to WWE.

Opinion: This list was a little confusing for me as you would think that John Cena coming to Monday Night Raw would be the top spot. Others, well, did not.

Instead, Angle announced that Miz would be headed to SmackDown Live in the Superstar Shakeup, noting that Bryan specifically stated that he wanted The Miz back on the Blue Brand.

A couple of weeks ago, WWE announced the dates of its next Superstar Shake-Up which would take place over two nights, and it started off with a bang on Monday Night Raw.

Despite this, Owens and Zayn have indeed joined Raw, as Zayn announced via a letter written by commissioner Stephanie McMahon, who overruled Kurt Angle. Now, all three former members of 3MB are on Raw. Plenty of names made the jump from SmackDown to Raw and Drew McIntyre even came up from NXT. Ziggler's singles shtick was getting exhausted and McIntyre is much improved since his initial run on the main roster when he was the "chosen one", so pairing these two together is something fresh and interesting - which is all we really ask for when it comes to the shakeup.

WWE aired a video package confirming that Baron Corbin will also be joining Raw. Breezango and Tyler Breeze are now on Monday Nights. They fought The Bar later on in the show and beat them in an upset.

Chad Gable: This move has the makings of being the sleeper of the 2018 Superstar Shakeup. It's a chance for old feuds to be reignited, and for stagnant wrestlers to find more opportunity on a different show.

Riott Squad: The concept of the Riott Squad really wasn't resonating on SmackDown since the moment they arrived from NXT, so the move to Raw likely is a last-ditch effort to see if they can be successful as a group before they inevitably split them up.

Dain, Wolfe, Cross and Young would be a better fit on SmackDown since Raw already has its own unconventional characters in Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. It's doubtful his fortunes change with this move, but stranger things have happened, I suppose. But then he brings out the man he came with, Drew McIntyre, and things get real interesting.

If WWE plans on creating tag titles for the cruiserweight division, The Singh Brothers would be a natural fit once Samir has healed up from his injury.

SmackDown will get their pick of the Raw ranks tonight, live on Sky Sports Arena at 1am, as the brands continue to remodel following the New Orleans extravaganza.
