Ranking Every SmackDown WWE Superstar Shakeup Move From Worst To Best

"Miz Is Awesome" or "Let's Go Joe"?

Big Cass Daniel Bryan

The Superstar Shake-up is complete and WWE have moved a total of 19 workers to Raw and 17 to SmackDown over the past two days.

Looking at the lay of the land on both shows, it seems SmackDown got the better deal; Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Drew McIntyre were huge for Raw, but Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, Andrade Almas, Asuka and The Bar blew them out of the water 24 hours later. Though he was traded on Monday, add The Miz to that list too.

As with any draft, there were a few stinkers in there that happened just for the sake of it. It was the same on Raw. For all the names like The Ascension, Mike Kanellis and Chad Gable making up the numbers on Monday, SmackDown received its own fair-share of filler that are nothing more than head-scratchers.

Things are looking bright on Tuesdays though. SmackDown got rid of some dead wood and is well-placed to become the definite wrestling-centric show on WWE's weekly schedule. Bring it on...
