Who should move over to Raw during the 2019 Superstar Shakeup?
The Superstar Shakeup has been taking place in the aftermath of WrestleMania for the past few years. Top superstars like Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Natalya, the New Day, and the Bar have switched brands in the past. Other top superstars like Elias, Drew McIntyre, Andrade, and SAnitY have been called up from NXT in the past as a part of the Superstar Shakeup in the past as well.
Next week the Superstar Shakeup will take place once again. This is as usual a big part of WWE as it shapes up how the rest of the WWE year will take place and directly leads us to the next WrestleMania. This year, tag teams will likely be broken up, NXT superstars will be called up, and the champions can possibly switch brands.
Mandy Rose (from SmackDown Live to Raw)
Mandy Rose has been a breakout star on SmackDown Live. She and Sonya Deville are a top tag team in the division. However, Mandy Rose has been given much more opportunities than Sonya Deville. Both women deserve opportunities, therefore the best move is to separate them.
If one superstar were to go to Raw, it would preferably be Mandy Rose. Given the fact that SmackDown Live will likely become a more wrestling based show, it makes sense that the woman who relies more on character should move to Raw. She can have feuds with likes of Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Natalya, and can potentially challenge for the Raw Women's Championship (once the championships are presumably separated once again).
Naomi (from SmackDown Live to Raw)
Naomi has been a part of SmackDown Live since the 2016 draft and there really is not much left for her to do on SmackDown Live. Her time on SmackDown Live has been mixed as she has recently spent a lot of time on the sidelines.
With Monday Night Raw having an extra hour, she will have more of an opportunity to shine against the likes of Bayley, Sasha Banks, Ruby Riott, and Nia Jax. If Mandy Rose does indeed go to Raw, it would also be the perfect opportunity for Naomi to continue her feud with Mandy Rose, which was never really resolved.
