The second part of the WWE Superstar Shake-up is tonight at 8pmET and they are teasing something big. From WWE.com:
The first night of the Superstar Shake-up was thrilling, to say the least. Although SmackDown LIVE is saying goodbye to Superstars like AJ Styles, The Miz, Rey Mysterio and Naomi, there is still plenty of intrigue as to who will be joining Team Blue.
The mystery has been heightened by Mr. McMahon, who will be revealing the biggest acquisition in SmackDown LIVE history tonight. Who has the WWE Chairman secured for the blue brand?
My pick is Roman Reigns, who has been a part of Raw since the brand extension started in July 2016. It just feels like the right time to move him over to Smackdown where he can have some new rivalries against different opponents. When I wrote my Raw to Smackdown predictions yesterday, I had Reigns on the list as the biggest name to move to Smackdown. I think it’s going to happen.
Brock Lesnar is another name that would fit the billing of “biggest acquisition” although I don’t expect it to be him. While I would expect Brock to be on Smackdown whenever he returns to WWE, it may not be until around SummerSlam time or perhaps in October when Smackdown starts on Fox. Lesnar is most likely to have his next match (or fight) in a UFC cage this summer although that’s not a lock.
Another potential “biggest acquisition” would be Ronda Rousey, but she is busy trying to get pregnant after posting a photo where she was kissing husband Travis Browne. There was a hashtag “#impregnationvacation” as well. Rousey also has a broken hand. I doubt it will be here.
The rest of the WWE.com Smackdown preview features these generic questions:
Who will join Team Blue in the Superstar Shake-up?
Who is Paige’s new tag team?
What’s next for WWE Champion Kofi Kingston?
Will any team step up to The Hardy Boyz?
Find out tonight on Smackdown. My review won’t be live, but I will try to get it posted a few hours after the show is over.
