The much awaited and highly anticipated event post-WrestleMania 35, the Superstar Shake-up is in the rearview mirror now. And as expected, WWE did manage to surprise us on a few occasions, however, it was quite predictable for the most part.

While WWE did end up missing a few tricks (Braun Strowman not getting switched to SmackDown Live for instance), they deserve a lot of credit for getting most things right in the Superstar Shake-up.

One such move which drew a lot of attention was Roman Reigns getting switched to SmackDown Live. Well, to be honest, it was a brilliant move by WWE and they deserve a pat on the back, as there was not much left for Roman Reigns on the red brand.

Also, WWE could not have booked him as the top babyface of the company (the ultimate goal of Vince McMahon) as he was continuously under the shadow of the current Universal Champion, Seth Rollins. Furthermore, a feud with Rollins which seemed a lucrative idea might also have backfired big time on WWE.

However, the SmackDown roster will not only provide fresh and new faces for a few potential feuds, but WWE could also book Roman Reigns as the top babyface of the blue brand to replace Kofi as the WWE Champion once Roman gets high on momentum.

So, without further ado, we take a look at 3 potential feuds for Roman Reigns on the SmackDown roster.

Well, after calling SmackDown Live his yard during the main event of SmackDown this week, the Big Dog went on to tweet that even though SmackDown Live was his new yard, the same old rules applied here.

While it was well received by the WWE fans, it did not go down too well with the current WWE Champion, Kofi Kingston. As a matter of fact, Kofi replied to Roman in his own unique way.

Thus, this could mean that a potential feud between the duo could very well be on the cards. However, to be honest, it is not the right time for it, as it might backfire on WWE.

Given there is not much of a momentum behind Roman, a potential feud with Kofi (now) may result in the crowd booing him once again. And I am afraid, Roman might be done for good.
