The Superstar Shakeup has taken over WWE over the past few weeks with many fans noticing that at the beginning Charlotte and Andrade were split when she remained on SmackDown Live and he was moved over to Raw. The following week, the company decided to switch Andrade back to SmackDown Live and also brought Aleister Black over to the Blue Brand so that he could be on the same brand as his wife Zelina Vega.

While it appears from the outside that WWE is looking to cater to some of the couples in the company at present, this isn’t the case since one recently married couple has been split as part of the Shakeup.

Last night in Tampa, Killian Dain made his return to NXT as he took on Jermaine Haley in a winning effort, reports now suggest that Dain has been sent back to NXT for good which means that he and his wife Nikki Cross are on separate brands. This could be good news for The Beast of Belfast who will be given the unique opportunity to renew his character while in developmental.

Sanity has definitely been one of the biggest victims of this year’s Shakeup since Eric Young and Nikki Cross were moved over to Raw, Alexander Wolfe took an interesting direction when he headed over to NXT UK and now Killian Dain has returned to the place where it all began for the innovators of chaos in NXT.

Nikki Cross will be part of Money in the Bank this weekend and even though her husband will be part of the NXT roster for the foreseeable future, he has continued to support his wife on Social Media and probably hopes that he will be back on the main roster alongside her in the coming months.
