With the makeshift superstar shakeup of the WWE right around the corner, we wanted to stop and take a look at some of the trades and moves that truly need to be made this Monday and Tuesday. Before I get into it, I will say one thing: AJ STYLES BETTER NOT BE MOVED TO RAW. Now with that out of the way, let's get into the 5 moves that need to happen in this superstar shakeup. Let's get into it.
*The New Day To Smackdown
-While I do think the New Day haven't had a good direction for the last few months, I think a new move to Smackdown will really revitalize this trio. There isn't much to do on Smackdown in terms of a tag team, but American Alpha vs The New Day and perhaps The Usos as tag champions vs The New Day (and a debuting DIY) could really be fun for all involved. The New Day to Smackdown seems virtually like a done deal.
*Charlotte And Alexa Bliss Switch Brands
-As odd as it sounds, Alexa Bliss has hit her ceiling on Smackdown and could benefit from a feud with Bayley on RAW that leads to her taking the RAW Women's Title. I think the dichotomy of a Sasha Banks vs Alexa Bliss feud would also be fun, but I honestly think we could also see Sasha and Becky Lynch switch brands considering. If you send Charlotte and Sasha to Smackdown for Becky and Alexa, I think it changes the dynamic of each show, but honestly, I could also see a lesser women's wrestler like Summer Rae going over to Smackdown instead of Sasha, and maybe Carmella going over to RAW with James Ellsworth. However, the main trades I see are Charlotte and Alexa switching brands.
*Dean Ambrose To RAW
-I think Ambrose goes over to RAW on Tuesday for Smackdown and drops the IC Title on the show to either Corbin or Miz. With that being said, after he drops the title, he will go to RAW and knowing how ridiculous the WWE is, they will try to make The Shield get back together at some point in effort to keep Roman Reigns as a failure of a face. The plan that I see happening is The Shield reunion to combat this rumored Triple H stable which leads to the Finn Balor heel turn and The Club reuniting as well. Ambrose has nothing to do on Smackdown and RAW would be a good move for him, and to help out his "brothers".
*Bray Wyatt To RAW
-I know this sounds unlikely... and it should be, but hear me out. Bray is going to end up on RAW... and turn face. He was headed that route before his mini injury and when he went to Smackdown, you knew he had to stay heel, but on RAW... Bray turning face could be a big deal. We could see Bray vs Samoa Joe, Bray vs Owens, even a tease of Bray vs Triple H. If Bray stays heel, could you imagine a Bray vs Seth, Bray vs Finn, or even a Bray vs Braun feud? This needs to happen as the only feuds that would work for Bray now on Smackdown are against AJ and Nakamura. And that's just not going to work in the long run.
*Sami Zayn To Smackdown
-I don't even want to go into detail. It's simple. Corbin vs Zayn for the IC Title and Miz vs Zayn would be great and honestly, I'd love a Zayn vs Styles feud. I'd love to see Ziggler vs Zayn as well if Ziggler stays on Smackdown. The fact remains however, with Foley gone off RAW and the storyline with Zayn basically dead in the water, a move to Smackdown for Zayn is exactly what he needs to revitalize him and his momentum. He's one of the best in ring performers and a Smackdown move is the biggest move that needs to happen. The same could be said for Cesaro, BUT it is very possible that Cesaro and Sheamus move to Smackdown as a team before eventually breaking up to be solo stars again.
These 5 moves aren't the only ones that need to happen but they are the ones that should happen the most. Let's tune in this week and find out who ends up where in the WWE. It will be more than interesting.
