Default Roster Shake-up

Didn't see a topic covering this, but please merge if there is one.

The Roster Shake up was announced for next Monday/Tuesday, so my question is this:

Who is going to move, or who would you like to see move and why?

Whenever thereís a WWE Draft or a shakeup, I always lean towards my video game roster setup.

To Raw:
Anyone who has ever held a World Championship Title from any promotion.

To Smackdown:
Anyone who has ever held a Championship from any promotion, but never held a World Championship Title.

To NXT:
Anyone who has never won a Championship of any kind, anywhere.

Since this will never happen in reality, Iím going to go with these 2 specific moves.

Brock Lesnar to Smackdown
A. J. Styles to Raw

I have a couple of reasons for this:

I would like to see the WWE World Champion Title Belt back on the ďAĒ show. Regardless of what anyone thinks, this is the richest prize in Professional Sports Wrestling Entertainment. It is the flagship Championship, so it should be on the flagship show.

A. J. Styles going to Raw increases the chances of getting the first 3 leaders of the Bullet Club (and Gallows) together. Just picture this for a second. WWE Champion, A. J. Styles, Intercontinental Champion, Finn Balor, and Raw Tag Team Champions, the Good Brothers (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson). All we would need is for Kenny Omega to come in and win the Cruiserweight Championship Title.

I would like to see the WWE Universal Championship Title Belt on a Blue strap. Iíve seen it done using photoshop, and it looks pretty good.

Having Brock Lesnar on the Smackdown roster could be good by having a big name on Tuesday nights with fresh matchups. Since he barely shows up, this could also elevate the United States Championship Title similar to how the Intercontinental Championship Title was pushed on Raw.

Whatever happens, I'm sure I won't be completely happy with how they execute the shakeup. Let's just hope for the best.

To RAW: Randy Orton, Bobby Roode, Baron Corbin, Charlotte.

Reasoning: Randy Orton has absolutely nothing to do on Smackdown anymore, same can be said for Corbin and even Roode who was only called up eight months ago. He's exhausted his place in the Smackdown mid-card. And Charlotte to RAW because Rousey/Charlotte IS going to happen sometime within the next year.

To Smackdown: Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Bayley and Sasha and I'm also expecting an NXT call-up or two to go to Smackdown.

Reasoning: Braun desperately needs a change, keeping him on RAW is literally dangerous for the character. The next few months are gonna be make or break for him and there's nothing to "make" on RAW. Finn is in a similar position though to a far lesser extent, he just needs a change. Smackdown is in desperate need of faces on the women's roster, ESPECIALLY after the call up of the Iconic Duo. Since I have Charlotte going to RAW I need to bring once face over to Smackdown which is why I chose Bayley. Also, I'm not entirely convinced they're gonna go through with the full Sasha heel turn. I can see them keeping her a face just for the sole reason that they need more, bring her over with Bayley and they'll team to take on the Iconic Duo. And as for the NXT call-ups, it just seems like there has to be more. Sanity is doing absolutely nothing right now, their call-up is long overdue.

My personal picks...

To RAW:
-Randy Orton
-The Usos
-Becky Lynch
-Charlotte
-Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable
-Baron Corbin
-Tye Dillenger or Zack Ryder

To SD:
-Finn Balor
-The Good Brothers
-Jeff Hardy
-Asuka
-Bayley or Sasha (who loses Monday)
-The Revival
-Elias

The biggest problem is building both tag teams divisions. In RAW, we have The Bar, Woken Warriors (Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt), The Authors of Pain, Titus World Wide, The Usos, I Got Kids, Sheldon Benjamin and Chad Gable. A lot of fresh feuds for them and a lot of good teams. And Kurt and Jordan can feud with Benjamin and Gable... Smackdown, can have the Revival to revive (so bad), push more the New Day, Good Brothers, and start again with the Ascension and The Fashion Police...

To Raw: The uso's, Becky Lynch, Baron corbin, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan

Reasonning behind these pick, For the first three it's mostly because they've been on smackdown for so long that i feel it's time for a change of scenery for them. Ziggler, just because i don't know what's left for him on smackdown and Daniel Bryan mostly because it would be a major surprise and again separate him from smackdown.

To Smackdown: Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, the revival and Mandy Rose

Reasoning behind these pick, Finn really need a fresh start, samoa Joe need to seperate himself from Roman Reigns since they been feuding so much that i feel it's all Joe as been doing since his call up, Jeff Hardy, mostly to separate himself from the low midcard act that is woken matt and bray wyatt, the revival really need a rebooting as well and being on a smaller show with less tag teams would help them and Mandy Rose, mostly because now that absolution seem to be over, that would be a great way to separate these 2 without doing a official break up.

Oh goody, another "let's switch sides" moment...

Personally, I think they have already ruined this by not including NXT and 205 more and making it more of a draft. Why do the whole "debuts" again this week when you could have held a draft and made a bigger deal of someone like Ember Moon debuting or Authors Of Pain? Had Regal demand someone big from the main roster in return like Goldust (as cover for him training people) for example? Why make a big deal of a new GM for Smackdown if she's not gonna get to choose some stars?

So this way we get a few seemingly random swaps and a few obvious ones...

Rather than predict picks, I'll just comment on some of the others above...

Mandy Rose - Why move her unless you are pairing her permanently with Goldust and moving them both... the chemistry is there and it'd be a good last hurrah angle for him...she can always betray him to end his career and become a massive heel.

Jeff Hardy - Can see why people want it, but he needs to be where Matt is, even if he is working with Bray for the whole Broken thing to really work. His DUI shows he isn't as reformed as everyone thought and to be honest, Matt deserves the spotlight/Jeff's support this time... Jeff had his time, now it's Matt's.

Becky - Makes sense if Asuka moves to SD... but ultimately pointless as we KNOW Ronda is the one who is gonna be taking Nia's title...all Becky becomes is another game challenger.

Corbin - Can't see it working or him doing "what he does" better on RAW or better than Joe or Strowman... the problem is he is weaksauce compared to the other guys with a similar schtick... Braun is more over and far more intimidating, Joe more of a physical threat and even Roman is marginally better in the ring and now there is Lashley too. He needs to stay put on SD and hope none of those 4 come over to where he is lest he be made to look even more like one of those knock off action figures from the dime store.

Tag Teams - Uso's make sense to move but they have their title shot in Saudi so probably not. Can't see the point in Gable and Benjamin as a team much longer but the move to RAW at least allows Gable to turn on him and re-team with Jordan. Shelton can pick up another partner easily or someone else comes up. or Gable just moves and Shelton joins New Day... that could be an interesting way to "split" the group, with he and Big E. forming a splinter group and ending up against Kofi and Xavier.

Debuts - The Paige thing doesn't make much sense other than the movie... unless. Yep, they bring ADR to Smackdown as part of this. Would be an interesting angle to see Shane having to convince Paige of it or her showing "favouritism" to her ex... remember how Lita and Edge were red hot even though they'd actually broken up? There could be some mileage in this angle, even if it's a risk... The one thing true now is that Paige is "in the inner circle" at least until the movie comes out so she'd be pretty well protected and ADR would be kept in check...

Return - Jericho would seem to be the big name left to return too... he's doing Saudi and seemingly isn't gonna face Naito now... Personally I think he needs to be wherever the IC title (and Miz) end up so they can start building to the 10th title feud.

To Raw:
Baron Corbin-change of scenery; feud with Strowman, Lashley, Rollins, Woken Wyatt, etc

Usos-feud with AOP, the Bar, Revival

Naomi-not just cuz husband moved over but for new feuds like Bayley, Ember Moon, Asuka, Nia, etc

Ziggler- feud for IC title w/ Rollins, Woken Wyatt, Woken Hardy, Cena

Randy Orton: Other than AJ, Randy has been involved with most upper level superstars on SD. At least on Raw, he can feud w/ Reigns, Rollins, Strowman, Lashley, etc

Benjamin and Gable-bill as the American Standard and eventually feud (as another poster put) with Angle and Jordan.

Riott Squad: fresh matchups; Absolution is no more so they can be woman stable to feud w/ Bayley, Asuka, Nia, Naomi, etc. Plus w/ Iconics being both heels, no really need for Riott Squad on SD. Maybe even have Sonya join and eventually kick out Liv Morgan and she can become babyface again.

Tye Dillinger-maybe a 3 hour show can get him some tv time; should at least push to be in IC title picture






To Smackdown:
Samoa Joe-SD needs a monster type like Strowman on their show but as a heel/tweener

Finn Balor-turn heel and push Balor Club as a legit badass force; eventually create program where Balor and company are trying to get AJ to join and milk the uncertainty of AJ joining or not only to have them feud.

Sasha Banks: turn heel and join heavily pushed Balor Club as the dominant stable trying to take over SD invasion style.

The Club (Anderson/Gallows)-these guys need a change of scenery and attitude bad; stop making them jobbers and make them badasses that they were; I'd also add maybe one more male superstar (maybe Bobby Roode as he is much better suited as a heel)

Jeff Hardy-unless they have a Brother Nero gimmick planned then separate from brother Matt and move to SD to feud in US title picture

Mandy Rose-split her and Sonya up and have her move towards being a face.

Miz-renew feud with Daniel Bryan

Cien Almas or Kassius Ohno callup from NXT


future endeavored: Colons, Tamina, Mike Kannelis, Dana Brooke, Alicia Fox, Curt Hawkins, Sin Cara

I see there are future WWE live events listing Asuka on SD Live

I do think Asuka and Charlotte will be switching shows along with
Naomi and either Sasha Banks/Bayley.

If Seth Rollins had not won the IC belt, I would have loved to see him
in a match with AJ but SD Live really needs heels with Sami/KO
likely gone to Raw. The perfect guy for SD's heel would be a heel
version of Roman but perhaps Finn Balor can play that role with the
smaller guys on SD. Almas is likely SD's NXT call up but RAW's
roster needs to be thinned out if Orton gets drafted.

There will be others but does it really matter with the mid card guys?

To Raw:
The Usos
Bobby Roode
Naomi
Becky
Zack Ryder
Breezango
Rusev and Lana
Sanity
Kassius Ohno

To Smackdown:
Anderson and Gallows
Neville
Sasha Banks
Asuka
Sheamus
The Miz
Johnny Gargano

I made an updated Raw and SD roster with my changes, but it looks like SD would end up with a weak midcard, unless they use Benjamin/Gable and the New Day in both tag team and single competition, but I doubt it.
I guess it wouldn't be a big problem, considering wwe have superstars move up and down the card constantly.

Daniel Bryan moves to RAW, and gets the fucking rocket strapped to him. Reigns will become Universal Champion in Saudi Arabia, Bryan will chase the title, and we will see Bryan vs. Reigns at either SummerSlam or WrestleMania. Bryan was chosen by the fans, Reigns was chosen by the office. It's a fitting dynamic and the crowd would be hot as fuck for their matches. Bryan would also have excellent matches with Seth Rollins and Samoa Joe over on RAW. Not to mention the long-awaited feud with The Miz. Bryan definitely needs to go to RAW.

Finn Balor, Anderson & Gallows get moved to SmackDown. If SmackDown loses a solid babyface worker in Bryan, makes sense they'd replace him with Balor. All four Bullet Club guys will be on SmackDown, united. You can tease tension between Balor and Styles in the leadership spot, and eventually do that match. Plus, Styles has unfinished business with Nakamura, and Balor would be a future opponent for Nakamura as well. Between those three guys you've got some solid WWE Championship matches throughout the year.

To replace Anderson & Gallows in the tag division, either the Usos or New Day need to move to RAW. Usos and New Day have had thousands of matches against each other, and they're the top face tag teams in WWE right now. Make sense to split them up and have one on each brand. I'd say New Day to RAW since the Usos are already #1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Titles. On RAW, I'd also like to see Big E get a bit of a singles push in the midcard. I think the guy has tremendous upside. He's got the size and the look, he's an atheltic big man, and he's one of the most naturally charismatic guys on the roster. Could easily be the IC/US Champion.

Lastly, Jeff Hardy goes to SmackDown. Matt & Bray are a tag team right now, makes sense to have Jeff away from that on the other show as a solid midcard babyface. This seems like close to a 100% lock.
