The second part of the Superstar shakeup has taken place and now we have a good idea what the rosters are going to look like for at least the next 12 months.

 

Who Moved From RAW To Smackdown?

Jeff Hardy (with the United States Championship)

Samoa Joe

Asuka

Sheamus

Cesaro

Karl Anderson

Luke Gallows

Mandy Rose

Sonya Deville

R-Truth (who also made his return)

Big Cass (returned after an injury)

 

NXT To Smackdown

Andrade “Cien” Almas (with Zelina Vega)

SAnitY (Eric Young, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe)

 

That is the superstar shake up all done and dusted. Smackdown got some pretty big hitters, most notably Jeff Hardy, Asuka and Samoa Joe. Jeff taking the United States Championship with him was to be expected as RAW still has the Intercontinental Championship.

The Smackdown tag team division gets a boost thanks to The Bar and The Club, but you also have to wonder if Gallows and Anderson are going to join forces once again with AJ Styles?

At the end of Smackdown, Big Cass made his return and did it in quite dramatic fashion as he knocked out Daniel Bryan. Big Cass has the look that WWE loves so moving to Smackdown could be great for his career.

Smackdown also picked up four NXT talents. Andrade “Cien” Almas has been putting on fantastic matches for the last year in NXT, especially over the last few months. Also adding SAnitY to the mix is very interesting and again can help boost the tag team division on Smackdown.

One of the most interesting moves through is Samoa Joe. He is currently in a feud with Roman Reigns, so we can assume that Backlash is going to be the end of this.
