Ever since Shane O' Mac showed up in 2016 and subsequently paved the way for yet another brand split, the Superstar Shake-Up has always generated a lot of attention and fan-fare during the aftermath of Wrestlemania.

Superstars have been given a push from one brand to another on the basis of their work, while some household NXT superstars are also introduced in to the big leagues of WWE.

With the Superstar shakeup billed to take place on April 16 and 17 in Montreal, the idea is to stack both shows with supreme talents capable of drawing big numbers with WWE agreeing upon huge TV deals for Raw and Smackdown. Here are six superstars who could be on the move to the other show come April.

#5 Daniel Bryan

The current WWE Champion, Daniel Bryan was only cleared last year to compete in the ring after serious injuries suffered earlier in his career. Bryan has been eased into life in the WWE ring after initially feuding with Big Cass and even reuniting with Kane to compete for the Smackdown Tag Team Championships, albeit unsuccessfully.

Ever since he restarted his long time rivalry with the Miz, Bryan's stock has been high as ever with matches against AJ Styles and even Brock Lesnar to his name. His virtuoso performance against the Beast Incarnate was enough to cement his position as one of the go-to guys for Vince McMahon with Roman Reigns out of action.

With a new persona, Daniel Bryan has portrayed his character to perfection and is slated to defend his WWE Championship against five other superstars at the Elimination Chamber PPV. This could be a ploy by WWE to free Daniel Bryan of the championship so as to move him up the ladder to the A-show of the WWE i.e. Monday Night Raw.

His fan-following and in-ring ability hasn't declined since his previous WWE Championship reign and would be an apt replacement for Roman Reigns.
