Finn Balor Joins SmackDown Live

Intercontinental Champion Finn Bálor has jumped from RAW to SmackDown Live as part of the 2019 WWE Superstar Shake-Up.

Bálor, who lost to Andrade in a non-title match this week on RAW, was surprisingly moved to SmackDown Live the following night.

This is Finn’s first-time ever wrestling on the blue brand.

The Extraordinary Man defeated Mustafa Ali in singles competition on his very first night on Tuesday’s show.

Bayley Is Ready For “New Start” On SmackDown Live

Bayley is officially a member of the SmackDown Live as WWE drafted her to the blue brand under this year’s Superstar Shake-Up.

The Hugger, who never quite found a strong footing on Monday Night RAW and failed to be the big name that she was in NXT, could have huge things in store on SmackDown Live.

Bayley walked out to challenge Becky Lynch for the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championships and officially declared herself as a singles competitor during the segment.

Thereafter, on her very first night wrestling on SmackDown Live, Bayley teamed up with Ember Moon and Asuka & Kairi Sane to defeat the team of The IIconics and Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville.

This clearly indicates that WWE is done with the team of Bayley and Sasha Banks after the duo dropped the Women’s Tag Team Championships to The IIconics at WrestleMania 35.
