Not so fast? Last week WWE ran the Superstar Shakeup with names moving from show to show, with Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live’s rosters receiving some facelifts. These were long overdue and it was a good idea to make some of the changes. As it turns out though, WWE wasn’t entirely done with the changes, including some of those that were made during the shows.
According to PWInsider by way of 411mania.com, Andrade, Zelina Vega and Aleister Black have all been moved over to SmackDown Live after coming to Monday Night Raw last week. Andrade and Vega moved over from SmackDown Live while Black was officially named to the roster. Black’s partner Ricochet did not move over with him. The move is better for the trio’s personal lives, as Black and Vega are married and Andrade’s girlfriend Charlotte is on SmackDown Live.
Last week was a big debut for Andrade. Check out his only match as part of the Monday Night Raw roster:
Opinion: Well ok then. I’m not sure how WWE could make these moves in the first place and then unmake them a week later but that’s how this company tends to work. If nothing else, we better get an Andrade vs. Finn Balor Intercontinental Title match after Andrade defeated Balor on Monday Night Raw. Then again, would it really surprise you for that not to happen?
Who benefits the most from this move? And who loses the most? Let us know in the comments below.
