There have been suggestions that Seth Rollins could move to SmackDown Live

With the 2018 Superstar Shake-Up almost upon us, the talk of the WWE Universe after WrestleMania 34 has largely centred around who will be moving from Raw to SmackDown Live, and vice versa, in next week’s roster changes.

Will “Monday Night Rollins” become “Tuesday Night Rollins”? Are The New Day really in danger of splitting up? Who else will be called up from NXT? And what could the future hold for Asuka?

Well, in this article, we want to put a different twist on the upcoming Shake-Up by taking a look at five people who shouldn't switch brand on next week’s Raw and SmackDown Live.

#5 AJ Styles

AJ Styles has unfinished business with Shinsuke Nakamura

Remember when Dean Ambrose and The Miz moved to Raw last year to essentially continue a rivalry that began on SmackDown Live? It all felt very pointless and they may as well have stayed on the blue brand.

If WWE moves AJ Styles to Raw in the Superstar Shake-Up, as was heavily rumoured last year, then he will almost certainly continue his WWE Championship rivalry with Shinsuke Nakamura on the red brand, while Brock Lesnar (and the Universal title) would move to SmackDown.

To avoid a similar situation to last year with Ambrose and Miz, it’d be better if “The Phenomenal One” remained on Tuesday nights. Besides, SmackDown Live is “the house that AJ Styles built”, so he should stay where he is for that reason alone!
