This week on RAW, we witnessed quite a few gimmicks changes along with some character turns. Even after the culmination of the Superstar Shake-up, WWE is still looking to finalize their rosters by pulling out some last minute changes, even undoing some steps from last week.

On this week's RAW, we saw Bray Wyatt finally make his return to WWE TV, but it was quite unlike what everyone was expecting. A potential bad-guy turned good-guy but maniac dollhouse keeper is how I can explain his gimmick has been portrayed so far. But it was something new, something fresh, something exciting.

Apart from that, we all saw the Glorious One, Bobby Roode, get a new name, new look, and what looks like a potential heel turn, as he will now be known as Robert Roode. I kinda liked his new mustache look, it does make him feel like a villain.

We also saw the team of Cesaro and Sheamus break-up. With this, it's clear that WWE is looking to make a lot of changes on its rosters to actually freshen things up, which is something fans would welcome. So can we expect something along the same lines tonight on SmackDown as well?

In this article, let's take a look at 5 gimmick changes/character turns that we could witness tonight on SmackDown. Feel free to share your thoughts on the same.

#5 Killian Dain

What's next for him?

Sanity was a faction that had immense potential to be the next big thing on the main roster. Unfortunately, Vince maybe didn't find them good enough to invest time in them, and Sanity ended up being one of the major NXT failures on the main roster.

With Eric Young drafted to RAW last week, and Alexander Wolfe appearing on NXT UK in a faction alongside Walter, it leaves the big guy of the group, Killian Dain, with nothing to do. Killian is surely a talented prospect, and with Sanity dismantled now, it might be a time for him to start a singles career.

I doubt WWE will go forward with the Sanity gimmick with Dain, and we might see him debuting a new gimmick on SmackDown tonight.
