The WWE brand extension has created opportunities for the Superstars of both Raw and SmackDown to rise to the occasion and enjoy substantial pushes the likes of wish they would never have in a united roster setting.
As good as the roster split has been for Superstars like Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, Jason Jordan and Jinder Mahal, it has become increasingly frustrating for a crop of talented Superstars who have seen their momentum halted, and, as their usefulness diminished, their staleness set in.
With WrestleMania on the horizon, the potential for a Superstar Shake-Up has fans guessing which Superstars could be on the move. Who would benefit most from leaving the crowded SmackDown roster and heading to Raw, where the three-hour runtime creates a greater chance for screen time, and who would benefit from leaving the flagship show for the Land of Opportunity that is the blue brand?
There are 10 Superstars in particular who could most benefit from making a brand switch sooner than later, with the immediate and longterm health of their characters banking on it. Who are they, and why might they benefit from making the jump?
The answer to that question is not nearly as complex as it may seem in any of their cases.
