Superstar Shakeup Prediction

Post by JoshSansom on Tue 04 Apr 2017, 11:33 pm

So Vince announces a Superstar Shakeup for next week's Raw. Simple question, who do you think will swap and why? Taking a liberal guess that there will be 1 x main event talent, 1 x upper-mid card, 1 x female talent and 1 x tag team + potentially 1 x NXT call up...

So, here goes:

Raw:
AJ Styles
Baron Corbin
Alexa Bliss
Harper & Rowan
(Shinsuke Nakamura)

Smackdown:
Seth Rollins
Samoa Joe
Dana Brooke
The Club
(Andrade Almas)

Seth move to SD with the aim of enabling Seth to make it "his" show and become the brand face for the second show. Joe moves to continue their feud and because otherwise it doesn't feel like a fantastic fit for him at the moment.

AJ to move to Raw based on his SD success and the potential for a move to a face character for him. Would also be a potential feud with Lesnar, Balor, Owens and a debuting Shinsuke because all those things are great there too.

Alexa has been great on SD and could really step up on Raw, Dana needs some time to develop further and be separated from Charlotte. Talking about separating Harper/Rowan could be brilliant if they are on the opposite show to Wyatt. On the same programme they are compared and diminished, let's see them fly taking the place of the Club who have been OK, but would probably benefit from better writing/booking on SD.

Finally Cien to debut on SD because the roster is fairly light as it is, he doesn't have a definitive feud and a place on SD could be the make/break for him in the WWE for me.

The club to smackdown would make a lot of sense - that tag division needs picking up and they need a fresh scene

I would like AJ, The Club and Balor all on the same brand. Because it would be a serious waste not to have that storyline and the longer they put it off the less chance it will happen

Meltzer:
AJ is going to Raw, and Roman stays as well. He doesn't know who's the star that they'll send to fill in for AJ.

The New Day are going to SDL.

He speculates from the TV that a Bliss/Charlotte swap will happen, but doesn't have any concrete info.

The Drifter is supposed to be called up next week, and so is Almas (even though he was at the NXT tapings).

Think they will stay put and work with the Hardys, New Day need a new challenge and putting over the Revival would seem to indicate they'll be moving on and seen hints that Sheamus and Cesaro will move

Charlotte being separated from Sasha and Bayley is needed I think.

Would like to see Bayley vs heel Sasha again

Bayley and Sasha is planned for Summerslam isn't it?

Charlotte to SD as face is going to happen I think, hence Nia flattening her. Her against Alexa would be interesting

I think we've seen enough of Dean Ambrose/Styles and Rollins/Owens that if one moves I hope the other doesn't.

They can have feuds with other people though.

I can't see them completely ending this HHH-posse story, so I don't see them splitting those people up, the heels especially.

They could do it across the two shows but I can't see it

Looking good for a 'who was the best Bullet Club leader' feud then. Though AJ seems to be going face

Prediction or what I want? What I want is:

SmackDown
New Day
Nia Jax
Charlotte
Cesaro and Sheamus
Sami Zayn
Jericho

RAW
Styles
Harper
The Miz
Mickie James
Kalisto
The Ascension
Apollo Crews


Leaves Raw short of women, but theyve got obvious stories to tell before finally moving Asuka up. 

Raw Women:
Sasha
Bayley
Emma
Mickie
Dana

Smackdown Women:
Alexa
Becky
Charlotte
Nia
Natalya
Naomi
Carmella

Leaves us with Paige, Nikki, Alicia and Summer Rae all as anyone's game.


Tags would then be:

Raw:

Revival
Hardys
Club
Enzo & Cass
Shining Stars
The Ascension

Smackdown:

New Day
American Alpha
Sheamus and Cesaro (for now)
Usos
Fandango and Breeze
Slater and Rhyno
(eventually) Mojo and Ryder

I think they need to focus on how they can use the Cruiserweights on Raw outside of the division more, and make some more tag teams.

Cesaro and Sheamus follow a trend with the pinnacle being Kane and Bryan that show if you get them right and give them time to wrestle then tag teams can work for people. Crews strikes me as someone who could do with a really good partner and some time to show off.

A big part of the problem with the cruiserweights is that they insist on seperating the division from everything else. I'd love to see guys like Ali and Gallagher locking up with Zayn and Balor.

Also, moving Neville down poses the question of why Balor hasnt been pushed down - he meets the weight limit, so whats the problem? What makes him special that he doesnt need to be in the division? In Kayfabe anyway.

I presume that would be choice. Neville chose to, Balor didn't.

But yes, it is weird that they have an exclusively cruiserweight show and insist on the same on Raw. What's gonna get them more over; a match with Kevin Owens or matches with each other? Basically, they wouldn't dare book them as equals so don't want to show them losing.

Crews has moved to Raw (as per WWE Twitter)

Definitely one I agree with. I think they'll be tempted to change his billed weight to around 205, but they definitely need to have him wrestling more. His skill is eye-catching athletic ability, he won't get over as a character without the chance to show off.

Would also put him as a candidate to get over in a tag team. Less burden of character as he has someone to bounce off

with his build and athleticism if they gave him a character similar to Taz and a really aggressive looking submission move they could do well with him but as it stands right now I just don't care about him
