RAW: Superstar Shakeup Brings New Faces, Loses Miz

17 April 2018

Moving The Revival and Titus Worldwide to SmackDown while The Usos, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin get drafted to Raw would change the division. These shows are nearly always a lot of fun though and there will be at least one or two big surprises included.

Riott Squad: The concept of the Riott Squad really wasn't resonating on SmackDown since the moment they arrived from NXT, so the move to Raw likely is a last-ditch effort to see if they can be successful as a group before they inevitably split them up. That bodes well for both Raw and SmackDown, as the week's Superstar Shakeup gets off to a great start.

However, Mahal would like to forget his RAW debut soon as he lost the title to Jeff Hardy on the same night. Welcome to Raw, Jinder Mahal.

Despite this, Owens and Zayn have indeed joined Raw, as Zayn announced via a letter written by commissioner Stephanie McMahon, who overruled Kurt Angle. Also, as Kurt Angle mentioned, "I hear TNA is hiring".

"Bryan has essentially been instantly reestablished as arguably the top babyface in WWE and a business-boosting one at that", writes Blake Oestriecher of Forbes.com. Although frustrated, The Miz lit into Angle, stating that this trade was a huge mistake on Raw's part, rightfully declaring that he will make SmackDown Live "THE" show.

Breezango shows up on Raw and tells The Bar their outfits have no theme.

After the match, The Bar is backstage when they get tickets for violating the laws of the Fashion Police. They fought The Bar later on in the show and beat them in an upset.

Natalya: Upon her initial appearance on Raw, it seems as if Natalya will be the first singles program for Ronda Rousey.

Dolph Ziggler shows up with his entrance that contains an audio clip of a record player being scratched.

As for Ziggler, teaming him with McIntyre gives him something new and fresh to do.

Dolph then said he didn't come alone, and Drew McIntyre attacked Titus Worldwide from behind. Now, all three former members of 3MB are on Raw. This also leaves open the possibility of Hardy and his title heading to SmackDown tomorrow, removing him from Matt Hardy for awhile, while also allowing Seth Rollins and the Intercontinental Championship to stay on Raw.

Bobby Roode - Roode's reception on Smackdown Live has been lukewarm, but a move to RAW could give him another jumpstart.
