With the WWE Universe still buzzing over an historic WrestleMania, the excitement continued on Monday Night Raw when a two-day Superstar Shake-up was announced for next week!

The roster moves will take place during next week’s Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE. The last WWE Superstar Shake-up occurred in April of 2017.

TJR Thoughts: I’m glad that they do it so soon after WrestleMania because it feels like a new year or a new season of WWE programming after WrestleMania ends. It would be nice if WWE explained how the choices are made, whether they are draft picks or trades, but they don’t seem to care to announce anything like that.
