Here’s Every Wrestler Who’s Moved To Smackdown In The “Superstar Shakeup”

This week WWE will feature a “Superstar Shake Up” that will move wrestlers between Raw and Smackdown Live. There has been a lot of speculation about who is going where.

We’ll be tracking all the Smackdown Live moves here.

Becky Lynch and Mojo Rawley already announced that they would be staying on Tuesday nights:


Byron Saxton and David Otunga are swapping places. No word yet on what this means for JBL or if it affects him at all:

“Obviously we saw a lot of changes on Raw, and I guess I’m one of those changes,” Saxton told WWE.com moments after Raw concluded. “I’m gonna miss Michael [Cole], I’m gonna miss Corey [Graves] — well maybe not so much Corey — but you know what? I’m going to be positive about this. This is a great opportunity. Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan always say SmackDown LIVE is the land of opportunity, I’m ready to seize it. I guess I’ll wear more blue now.”

GM Daniel Bryan also announced that “Superstar” James Ellsworth would be staying:

Also before the show, Jinder Mahal made his switch official and challenged Mojo Rawley to a match

 The show began with United States Champion Kevin Owens arriving (IN A SUIT) to Smackdown Live:

Then KO’s hated rival Sami Zayn showed up!!


But GM Daniel Bryan made a special announcement. He really drafted the belt instead of Kevin Owens. The belt won’t be defended on Smackdown until KO wrestles Jericho at Payback. After that, the winner comes to Smackdown and faces off against the winner of tonight’s no.1 contender triple threat: Aj Styles, Baron Corbin, or Sami Zayn.

Sin Cara is also on Smackdown

Recently single Aiden English is getting a push!

The Shining Stars are joining the #SDLive Tag Division

Tamina is back from an injury and family issues to join the Women’s Division too.
