Who's going where? Miz will go back to Raw to get him away from Shane Mcmahon.

Roode/Gable now they are officially heels need to be put on Smackdown to build back up again.

Smackdown will get top heavy ready for Fox, so expect them to get some big names maybe Reigns.

We seem to already be seeing signs of where people will be headed following the draft. Braun & McIntyre will be going to smackdown, the Bar back to Raw.

Sky Pirates will debut as a tag team managed by Paige. Outside chance it's Marina Shafir and Jessamin Duke instead.

I would expect to see New Day get broken up.

I wouldn't be too surprised to women get juggled around such that all 4 horsewomen are on the same roster, to get ready for 4 horsewomen vs 4 horsewomen, while Baszler, Duke & Shafir are all drafted to the other brand.

Think New Day will maybe disband.

Usos will go to Raw

Pete Dunne will be called up but im not sure which show

Maybe this is the point where Blck and Ricochet are separated and each go to a different show

Miz to Raw

Strowman and Drew to SD

AJ or Orton to Raw

Quote Here are the list of wrestlers who have joined the WWE Raw brand after night one of the annual Superstar Shake-up. The action continues tonight at Smackdown.

* The Miz
* Aleister Black
* Ricochet
* The Viking Experience (previously The War Raiders)
* Andrade (w/Zelina Vega)
* Cedric Alexander
* Rey Mysterio
* The Usos
* Naomi
* Eric Young
* Lacey Evans
* Lars Sullivan
 

* AJ Styles

Raw didn't do too well, so it looks like Smackdown is going to make top tier heavy tonight ready for Fox.

They mainly got people who already wrestle on there that weren't on a specific brand or mid card guys.

Styles and Usos are the big names. Hopefully they get used just as well on their new home.

Eric Young is a weird one, does this mean the end of Sanity? Unless the rest of the group are going to follow him to Raw. 

Don't mind the new name for the War Raiders, was never a fan of that name and they are a good addition to the weak Raw tag scene, it's a smart move for the Usos too as it further boosts the tag ranks and they needed the change for some fresh options. 

Not sure about AJ, guys like Kurt Angle, Edge and Chris Benoit thrived on Smackdown in the past but struggled when they moved to Raw, could be the same situation for Styles. 

I reckon any from Rollins, Reigns, Strowman, McIntyre and Balor are Smackdown bound.

It has to be absolutely nailed on that Drew is moving to Smackdown

Fully expect to see Pete Dunne, maybe Undisputed Era, and maybe Brock Lesnar

They keep mentioning on Raw that Lesnar went for talks in Vegas and expecting that everyone feels it is UFC related.

Vince has also said he will be unveiling the biggest acquisition in SD history so it has to be someone huge

So the huge acquisition was..... Elias! Well really it was Roman Reigns the Elias thing was tongue in cheek. 

Balor moved to Smackdown too which is a move I like, no Drew McIntyre which surprised me but at least with Raw no longer having Roman there is now a top spot up for grabs. Over on SD it has to be a bit frustrating for Kofi Kingston who will surely be number two behind Roman. 

Smackdown's tag division seems to have suffered, no more Usos or Sanity, seems to be a question mark over the future of Sheamus and Cesaro and Rowan and Harper it seems won't be reforming as Luke Harper has requested his release.

WWE kinda seems like it's just falling apart at this point. Their booking decisions have been abysmal. The Viking Experience, breaking up Sanity, keeping Corbin, Lashley & McIntyre together... It's just not working.

WrestleMania was good, but Raw & Smackdown both before and after have just been terrible.

No sign of Gargano during the shake up so seems the injury to Ciampa has shelved their move to the main roster.

In a slightly odd move WWE has switched Andrade and Zelina Vega back to Smackdown and also moved Aleister Black to the blue brand. Cesaro has moved to Raw. 

Not sure why, maybe after the shake up they felt Smackdown was too babyface heavy or they wanted a Hispanic talent on both brands, or maybe they just felt there were better options for Andrade on SD. Apparently Black moving is because hes married to Zelina Vega so it's to keep the couple on the same brand. 

I would have preferred Black to remain on Raw as I think he has a better shot at establishing himself as a top guy, on Smackdown there is Roman, Kofi and Owens so it will be tough.
