WWE Raw: 5 possible shockers for Superstar Shake-up this week
With WrestleMania 35 in the history books, we are all set to see the new direction of WWE programming this week as the Superstar Shake-up will happen on both RAW and SmackDown.
If you are not familiar with the concept of Superstar Shake-up, it's like a mini-draft. SmackDown and RAW both trade some of its superstars in exchange of others. As a result, the rosters are shuffled, leading to new matchups and storylines.
The fans surely are looking forward to the Superstar Shake-up and are excited to know which brand their favorite superstars will end up. What potential swerves, twists, and shockers will WWE pull off this year?
In this article, we take a look at 5 such shockers we may get on RAW.
#5 Split the New Day
Throughout the Road to WrestleMania, the New Day were one of the biggest protagonists. Feuding pretty much directly with Vince McMahon, the trio of Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods ultimately came out victorious, with Kofi winning the WWE title at WrestleMania 35.
But what if the evil boss decides to take revenge and split the trio? With Big E possibly out with an injury, there might not be a direction for Xavier at the moment, and drafting him to RAW could work out well.
He might be the underdog to win the upcoming Money in the Bank, and carry the briefcase on RAW, teasing to cash in on the Universal Champion, before shocking everyone and cashing in on Kofi.
Things could get really interesting if this trio split!
#4 Move The Usos to RAW
There's no denying the fact that RAW's Tag Team division needs some serious change. The RAW Tag Team Championship is probably the worst booked title on the main roster, even worse than the United States Championship.
What it needs is a top team who can lead the division to greater heights. If The Usos show up on RAW, it would be a huge boost for the brand. Just to make things interesting, WWE should not announce them, but let them come out as a surprise and attack the current RAW Tag Champs, announcing their arrival.
