The final half of the Superstar Shake-Up took place on last night’s SmackDown LIVE. The changes made to the rosters of the blue brand have certainly transformed the entire landscape of the WWE.
The following Superstars were drafted from Monday Night RAW to Tuesday Night’s SmackDown LIVE:
- The United States Champion Jeff Hardy
- Mandy Rose
- Sonya Deville
- Samoa Joe
- Big Cass
- Luke Gallows
- Karl Anderson
- The Miz (the A-Lister was selected on night one of the shake-up)
These are the young guns who are the new arrivals to the blue brand straight from NXT:
- Andrade “Cien” Almas with Zelina Vega
- Eric Young
- Alexander Wolfe
- Killian Dain
This unbelievably stacked roster will now be a part of the new and better SmackDown LIVE. Dream Matches and unseen Wars will now commence with these new members making their way to Tuesday nights.
The United States Championship will indeed stay on SmackDown LIVE because Jeff Hardy, the man who defeated Jinder Mahal last night, has arrived with his new possession. Hardy already has a target on his back because the Viper Randy Orton will face the Champion, whoever it is, at the Backlash pay-per-view.
The Miz has arrived on Tuesday Nights and it seems like the A-lister will resume his feud with now physically cleared, Daniel Bryan. The fans are hyped up about the long-awaited battle between the Miz and Bryan.
Big Cass, the 7-feet tall giant, has been off WWE TV since mid-2017 due to an injury. However, on his first night back, the giant took out fan favourite Daniel Bryan and has made his presence known.
Nobody expected The Destroyer Samoa Joe to be drafted to the blue brand, especially not after his very public challenge to Roman Reigns. However, Joe surprised everyone and will now be on Team Blue and the Samoan Submission Machine has put everyone from Daniel Bryan to WWE Champion AJ Styles on his list.
The Empress of Tomorrow Asuka made her first appearance since her shocking loss at WrestleMania 34. The former undefeated NXT Women’s Champion made her presence felt by laying waste on Carmella and the IIconics on last night’s show.
The former NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas will finally make his main roster debut alongside his business partner Zelina Vega. Also, Chaos will commence very soon on SmackDown because Sanity will be making their long-awaited debut on The Land of Opportunites.
All the names that have been drafted to SmackDown are accomplished and renowned and will look to gain more glory under the blue banner.
