    Superstar Shakeup '18

    So we're halfway through the Shakeup now. Let's take a look at the moves that happened on Raw;

    To RAW
    • Jinder Mahal w/Sunil Singh
    • Ruby Riott
    • Liv Morgan
    • Sarah Logan
    • Natalya
    • Sami Zayn
    • Kevin Owens
    • Breezango
    • Dolph Ziggler
    • Drew McIntyre
    • Baron Corbin
    • Bobby Roode



    To Smackdown Live
    • The Miz



    Other moves announced via Social Media
    • Zack Ryder
    • Mojo Rawley
    • The Ascension
    • Mike Kanellis
    • Chad Gable



    Funny enough, I think the biggest surprise is the last one listed, and off air at that. I felt Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin were starting to get their feet under them, but I'm glad that Chad's going to have more of a chance to shine on his own.

    The best move was clearly Miz to Smackdown. We're going to get the payoff for Bryan/Miz that we never thought we'd see. That's got rivalry of the year potential.

    Smackdown lost the US Title with Jinder Mahal, who in turn lost the championship to Jeff Hardy. The usual song and dance of these shakeups is a title holder is exchanged for another title holder, but I suspect Jeff Hardy is bringing the US Championship right back to Smackdown.

    Thoughts?

    They've moved the absolute worst of Smackdown over to Raw. Almost all of them. I'm intrigued.

    SmackDown won immediately by sending Ziggler to RAW.

    Rollins, Asuka and the Cruiserweights to Smackdown tonight would be my guess.

    Smackdown might actually be worth watching now since Mahal, Corbin and Ziggler are on Raw. Miz, Jeff, Joe, and Balor to Smackdown are my biggest guesses.

    Yeah Smackdown definitely made out like bandits it seems. Oddly enough, I see SAnity being the most refreshing addition. Tons of material to work with there.

    Smackdown cleaned up. Unfortunately all the guys I like will be battling against Smackdown booking.

    There's a tendency to think "If only X were on Y show, they'd be recognised as the royalty they clearly are and handfed grapes for the rest of their days." The truth is, I'm anxious of how the likes of Samoa Joe, Chad Gable and Big Cass (lol j/k) will be treated on either show. Poorly, one would guess. On SmackDown, you have awful writing. On Raw, you have the perpetual tyranny of Roman Reigns and/or Brock Lesnar. And awful writing.
