The 2019 Superstar Shake-up has been confirmed by the WWE, as on the 15 and 16 of April, we will see superstars from all over the WWE move across Raw and SmackDown Live. This is an exciting time for WWE fans, as the endless amount of dream matches, highly demanded narratives, and the sight of seeing your favorite wrestlers interacting with one another is intriguing.

Last year's edition of the Superstar Shake-up saw WWE ship top talents to Raw, and we saw the likes of Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Charlotte, and Andrade all become members of the blue brand. Will things be any different this year?

With rumors that WWE is planning to make SmackDown Live the A show due to their lucrative deal with FOX Sports, we could see Raw's top stars on their way to SmackDown Live. And while we might see stars like Ronda Rousey moved to SmackDown Live due to FOX wanting WWE to make SmackDown Live a more realistic show, who else could follow?

#1 Sasha Banks and Bayley

The friendship of Sasha Banks and Bayley has been an interesting one, as WWE has portrayed these two NXT standouts as the best of friends and the worst of enemies. And while many will say that WWE ruined Banks and Bayley's narrative by hesitating to turn Banks or Bayley heel during their time on Raw, that is not the case.

In fact, WWE has done a great job in showing the WWE Universe the ups and downs of these two superstars' relationship, so when they possibly win the first ever women's tag team titles at the Elimination Chamber, it will be a pay off for their troubles.

Therefore, whether or not these two stars come out of the Elimination Chamber as the new champions or not, it doesn't really matter, as what they need right now is for WWE to get them in a new environment, and SmackDown Live is the perfect place to put them.

Banks and Bayley have accomplished it all on Raw, and by sending them to SmackDown Live, WWE can give them the fresh start they need.
