Announced tonight on Monday Night RAW, starting next week there will be yet another Superstar Shake Up as members of roster on RAW and SmackDown will switch over to the brand.

WWE’s method last year was to simply have talent show up on the show rather than a formal draft. Looks as if they’ll do the same thing this year as well.

A lot of speculation over the past several months was that AJ Styles will be headed to RAW and Seth Rollins going to SmackDown, but with Rollins pushing the whole “Monday Night Rollins” gimmick (and to Coach’s point tonight, selling merchandise) and with AJ retaining the WWE Championship, it’s highly unlikely that either will switch shows.

So with that said, what do you think of them re-using the SuperStar Shake Up method as opposed the normal draft?
Also, who do you think will switch to the Red or Blue brand and who do you want to go where?

My predictions:
SmackDown:
- Finn Balor
- Gallows & Anderson
- Revival
- Asuka (who technically is still a member of RAW)
- Jeff Hardy
- Bayley
- Titus Worldwide (Titus O’Neil, Apollo & Dana Brooke)

RAW:
- Bobby Roode
- Uso’s
- Baron Corbin
- Dolph Ziggler
- Ascension
- Namoi
- Carmella
- Rusev & English


NXT Call Ups over Mania:
- Ember Moon (stays on RAW)
- AOP (heads to SmackDown)
- Cein Almas (heads to SmackDown)

I like these picks and think they could be pretty accurate. With the whole Monday Night Rollins thing in full swing I don't see Seth heading to Smackdown as had been rumoured but I can see Balor and the Club moving across, I think Samoa Joe may switch to the blue brand too, not sure about Ziggler as he'll be even further down the pecking order on Raw than he currently is on Smackdown.

Roode to Raw is a good call where hopefully he will turn heel. Rusev and English I think will be a better fit for Raw than SD with the Rusev Day gimmick. Jeff Hardy on Smackdown can distance himself from 'Woken' Matt and get a singles run.
Carmella should switch to Raw and be paired with Big Cass again where they can reboot the SAWFT gimmick minus Enzo.

Smackdown got massively short changed on call ups compared to Raw. So next week expect on both Raw and Smackdown some NXT call ups we didn't see this week.
 
With Paige the new Smackdown GM, they are going to move at least one of her Absolution buddies over there so they can do the predictable storyline of them thinking they will have management on their side, but Paige playing by the book as babyface.
 
Brother Nero and Samoa Joe could have been saved untl next week. Big Cass is probably the only person who can return from injury now.

Yes i think some of the call ups were witheld to allow them to finish up what they are doing in NXT.

Embers story with Bazsler had well run its course.

Almas will probs have a rematch and lose and then go to SD

Sanity will more than likely lose their next match and do the same

Quote One of the early rumors for next week's Superstar Shake-Up is for Asuka to head over to Smackdown. The supporting evidence would be that Asuka is reportedly being advertised for Smackdown live events in June, however, it should be noted that all live events have a disclaimer that the card is subject to change. Another possibility for a move is Charlotte Flair, since she has dropped the Smackdown women's title now and would be easy to swap over to Raw, more so if Asuka is headed the other way. Please note, this is only speculation and not confirmed by any sources.

Getting Asuka and Charlotte on the same show for a future rematch is hardly making a bold prediction.
 
Charlotte dropping the title makes it more likely she will be the one moved, so she can be back on the main show.
 
But then Asuka has gone through the Raw roster easily, so it's her I would prefer shifting.

Of all the roster changes I've seen as of the end of Raw, The Miz going to SmackDown while the US title comes to Raw is actually the most surprising. I thought for sure they'd keep Miz away from the intercontinental championship at least for a while, but I have a real hard time believing the IC title isn't going to SmackDown, where Miz will now be ready and waiting.

Nothing else thus far is all that shocking, or even tbh all that interesting.

I’m excepting Jeff Hardy to show up on SmackDown with the United States Championship tomorrow.

Quote With Raw now over, here is a list of talent that have moved from to Raw and so far, only one move from Raw to Smackdown was announced. WWE also chose to reveal a few of the moves through social media but we have consolidated it all below:

Moving to Raw

  • Jinder Mahal
  • Sunil Singh
  • Rudy Riott
  • Liv Morgan
  • Sarah Logan
  • Kevin Owens
  • Sami Zayn
  • Zack Ryder (announced via Twitter)
  • Tyler Breeze
  • Fandango
  • Natalya
  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Konnor of Ascension (announced via Instagram)
  • Viktor of Ascension (announced via Instagram)
  • Mojo Rawley (announced via YouTube)
  • Baron Corbin
  • Bobby Roode
  • Mike Kanellis (announced via Twitter)
  • Chad Gable (announced via YouTube)

Moving to Smackdown

  • The Miz

-- The rest of the Superstar Shake-Up, primarily the Smackdown roster, will be filled out during tomorrow's show.

Right so the point was made that the GMs have been negotiating trades, so we know we aren't suppose to see the picks as random.
 
Well if that's the case has Kurt took a blow to the head again? Why would he be interested in sitting down with Shane Mcmahon to get guys like Mojo, Ryder and Breeze to his show?
 
Raw didn't get one true main event star and Smackdown got rid of a lot of deadwood. It's probably the worse draft/shakeup the Raw brand have ever had, in the whole time these have taken place.
