Raw swiped some of SmackDown's top stars in the WWE Superstar Shake-Up's first round on Monday, but the blue brand recovered spectacularly last night. They've lost Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, and Alexa Bliss, but gained Charlotte, Sami Zayn, and potentially Kevin Owens, all of whom appeared on last night's episode.
Owens' defection is contingent on him retaining the United States Title against Chris Jericho at Payback, which looks likely given rumours of Y2J's impending hiatus. Tamina, Jinder Mahal, and The Shining Stars also made their debuts last night, with The New Day, Sin Cara, Rusev, and Lana set to follow.
The Miz will likely prove to be SmackDown's biggest loss, as he had become one of the show's MVPs since last year's draft. This should be offset by the arrival of a major heel in Owens, however, and if Rusev and Zayn receive the opportunities that eluded them on Raw, they'll surge up the card. Charlotte and The New Day should be immediate major players in their respect divisions, meanwhile.
Here is what looks like the final list of all Superstar Shake-Up roster changes:-
SmackDown to Raw: Apollo Crews, The Miz, Maryse, Dean Ambrose, Curt Hawkins, Bray Wyatt, Kalisto, Rhyno, Heath Slater, Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, David Otunga.
Raw to SmackDown: Byron Saxton, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, The Shining Stars, Jinder Mahal, Tamina, Charlotte, Sin Cara, Rusev, Lana, The New Day.
