Switch it up? There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and they are split up into two different rosters with very little crossover. The Monday Night Raw wrestlers almost never interact with their SmackDown counterparts and vice versa. While this sounds like a good idea a lot of the time, there are only so many ways to book the same wrestlers. Sometimes you need to shake things up and one big name might be making a move soon.
We are coming up on the WWE Draft, which will take place at some point later this year. The event will be a way to shake things up a bit and switch some wrestlers up between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. There are a few names who fans are suspecting to move, and one of them seems rather interested in moving, mainly because of someone else on the roster.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AJ Styles may use his backstage pull to get moved from SmackDown over to Monday Night Raw to avoid being around Paul Heyman. Styles and Heyman have had issues since Heyman played a role in getting Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson fired from WWE in April. Styles has been on SmackDown since May while Heyman has moved to SmackDown to manage Roman Reigns in recent weeks. Should Styles try to change shows, he should be able to make it work.
Both of them have something going for them. Check out what they can do:
Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised by this as Styles’ issues with Heyman are not exactly a secret. The two of them do not get along and Styles is the kind of star who could manage to make a change like this is he tries to do so. Styles is not likely going to be in wrestling that much longer and hopefully he gets to do in a place where he won’t be miserable because of one person.
Do you think Styles will leave? Who else do you see moving in the Draft? Let us know in the comments below.
