The Superstar Shake-Up began on Monday Night RAW this week, and it was concluded on SmackDown Live. The elation was sky-high as some top superstars were traded from the flagship show.
Two biggest names were exchanged between the two brands this week. Following the arrival of AJ Styles on RAW, the company shocked everyone when Roman Reigns became a member of the SmackDown Live roster. The Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor arrived on the blue brand from RAW, while former Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy joined SmackDown from 205 Live.
The SmackDown Women's division received a titanic boost from the Superstar Shake-Up. Former RAW Women's Champion Bayley and Ember Moon were the fresh names to arrive from the red brand, while former NXT Women's Champion Kairi Sane got her main roster call-up.
Here we discuss three things WWE cleverly told us on SmackDown Live this week.
Paige promised to bring her own tag team this week, and she did not disappoint. Though the fans were not pleased to see Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose interrupt her, Paige subsequently introduced the team of Asuka and Kairi Sane.
The new team of Asuka and Kairi Sane is undoubtedly impressive, and they could dominate the Women's Tag Team division. The Pirate Princess made a statement on her main roster debut after she pinned Peyton Royce. The team of Bayley, Ember Moon, Kairi Sane, and Asuka won the eight-woman tag team match on SmackDown Live this week.
Kairi Sane has an awe-inspiring track record in NXT, and she will be aiming to replicate it on the main roster. Besides winning the NXT Women's Title, she won the Mae Young Classic. Judging by the most recent episode of the blue brand, Sane and Asuka could dethrone The IIconics at Money in the Bank.
