As seen on today’s edition of Monday Night RAW, several Superstars from SmackDown Live and NXT were drafted to RAW. The ‘Superstar Shake Up’ got under way today, and the mini draft witnessed multiple Superstars jumping brands.
However, the biggest shocker was the current WWE Intercontinental Champion, Dean Ambrose coming back to RAW. Along with Dean, former WWE Champion, Bray Wyatt was drafted to the red brand. Although, Bray is still scheduled take on Orton in the ‘House of horrors’ match for the title.
Here’s a look at all the names that were drafted to RAW this week.
The WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose
Elias Samson (was seen ‘drifting’ on RAW)
David Otunga on commentary
After RAW went off – air, it was revealed that Byron Saxton – one of the three commentators on RAW would be moving to SmackDown Live. David Otunga, who usually accompanies JBL and Tom Phillips on SmackDown Live, was announced as RAW’s newest acquisition.
Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Kevin Owens expected to move to SmackDown Live
It is now being speculated that former RAW Women’s Champions, Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair will be making the move to the blue brand. With Alexa Bliss and Mickie James now drafted to Monday nights, it opens up a couple of spots in the women’s division on SmackDown Live.
Also, Nia Jax is currently being groomed to become the next RAW Women’s Champion, and as such, Sasha and Charlotte Flair will have to take a back seat. With SmackDown Live not having enough depth in the women’s division, it makes sense to bring Sasha and Charlotte to Tuesday nights.
Also, with Dean Ambrose moving to RAW, it is now being reported that Kevin Owens will be switching to SmackDown Live. Ambrose will be taking the Intercontinental title with him to Monday nights, and Owens is expected to move to SmackDown Live to bring the United States title to the blue brand.
Meanwhile, it is being reported that Sami Zayn will be accompanying Kevin Owens, along with The Shining Stars to SmackDown. Stay tuned, as we bring you all the details from the Superstar Shake Up.
