Value for value. There are all kinds of talented wrestlers on the WWE roster, to the point where you might forget about some of them from time to time. That can make it more interesting when you see someone you have forgotten about do something new. It seems that is the case with a longstanding WWE employee, who might be seen on a brand new show.

According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, NXT’s Aliyah has been traded to Monday Night Raw for Mandy Rose. This comes after Rose made a surprise cameo on this week’s NXT and told Robert Stone that his Robert Stone Brand seemed to be under new management in Frankie Monet. Earlier in the show, Aliyah attacked Stone, seemingly ending her association with the Robert Stone Brand. There is no word on what this will mean for Rose’s team with Dana Brooke on Monday Night Raw.

It was a busy night. Check out what the two of them did and what might be going where:

Sarray vs. Aliyah w/The Robert Stone Brand: WWE NXT, May 18, 2021

Opinion: I’m not sure if I get this one but it is certainly a way to shake things up. Aliyah has been in developmental for what seems like forever now and I’m not sure how she is going to fit in on the main roster. Rose going back to NXT makes a bit more sense as she has a bit of star power and could use some more seasoning in the ring. I’m curious to see how this goes, but it is certainly quite the turn.

Which one will have more success? Does the trade make sense? Let us know in the comments below.
