They’re on the clock. In just over a month, SmackDown Live will be moving over to FOX, turning it into the WWE’s new top show. That is quite the change of pace for WWE as Monday Night Raw has dominated the wrestling landscape for the better part of twenty six and a half years. However, with such a change to the television schedule comes a change to the company structure as a whole.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is considering another Draft to split the rosters again. This would repair the issues that were caused by the Wild Card Rule which was put in place back in May. Since the Rule was put into place, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live talents have moved back and forth freely. There is no word on when the Draft would take place.
The Superstar Shakeup was a big day. Check out how things went behind the scenes:
Opinion: And how long is this one going to last? The idea of keeping the same rosters permanently is something that doesn’t quite hold up as sometimes you need some fresh names on either show. I’m sure we’ll get the Superstar Shakeup after WrestleMania again, but that doesn’t exactly make for the most exciting shows. One show always gets left in the dust and that isn’t a good thing, no matter how stacked the other is.
