It’s a big night for the blue brand. This week, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live are undergoing the annual Superstar Shakeup. Over two consecutive nights, names will move from one show to the other, with NXT and 205 Live names moving around as well. That makes for some interesting roster changes, and now we know the final movements that have taken place.
This week on SmackDown Live, a host of names moved around from brand to brand, including names coming over from Monday Night Raw, NXT and 205 Live. These moves come a night after another long list of moves to Monday Night Raw. Some of the names that appeared tonight were also on last night’s show. Here is the list of people who appeared on the show tonight and where they came from:
Finn Balor (Monday Night Raw)
Lars Sullivan (Free Agent)
Ember Moon (Monday Night Raw)
Bayley (Monday Night Raw)
Kairi Sane (NXT)
Buddy Murphy (205 Live)
Elias (Monday Night Raw)
Roman Reigns (Monday Night Raw)
This man could be a hidden gem. Check out Buddy Murphy moving over to SmackDown Live:
Opinion: I like most of these moves with Roman Reigns and Buddy Murphy interesting me the most. Several of them were predictable, but at the same time there were more than enough of them to keep my interest up during the show. With several names coming to Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live needed their own big moves and that’s exactly what they got here.
Which of these moves is best? Who else should have moved? Let us know in the comments below.
