WWE roster shakeup results in multiple changes from last week’s Superstar Shakeup

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE has quietly moved Andrade and Zelina Vega back to the Smackdown brand after they were moved to Raw during last week’s Superstar Shakeup. Meanwhile, Aleister Black has also been moved to Smackdown after he was officially assigned to the Raw roster last week.

Powell’s POV: And I thought the Superstar Shakeup was a chaotic mess while watching it play out last week. I’d like to see WWE add some semblance of logic by simply orchestrating a storyline trade. It’s been rumored for a week now that Samoa Joe will be moving to Raw tonight, so they could explain these moves by saying Raw traded Andrade and Black (and Vega simply moves with Andrade) in exchange for Joe and his U.S. Championship. On the bright side, the moves reunite the couple of Andrade and Charlotte Flair, and also keep husband and wife Black and Vega on the same brand.

  1. But explaining it by saying Smackdown traded joe for those 3 to move back from raw wouldn’t make sense. There are no separate general managers etc for the brands so “who” would be making that decision on either brand. Fact is it’s just the McMahon family deciding where they want to see people. Yes they could have put some time in to explaining that but the explanation suggested doesn’t make sense either in today’s storylines of the “brands”.

  2. A shakeup to the shakeups?

  3. I didn’t know Andrade and Charlotte were together. This is probably a better fit for all involved though, except maybe Joe. Smackdown is really short on heels, and Andrade could be a top guy there with a little work. Now SD has a nice mix with Bryan and Orton as the vets; and Murphy, Andrade and Sullivan as some new additions.

  4. Charlotte probably pulled strings to make this happen lol

  5. I also read on Twitter that Cesaro has been moved to Raw.
