WWE’s Celebrity Shakeup has ended. Over the path of 2 days, each Uncooked and Smackdown programming switched issues up via buying and selling superstars between the 2 shows–and snagging some wrestlers from NXT. On Monday, Uncooked won quite a few new stars, bolstered their tag department, and gave Conflict Raiders a cringe-worthy twist.
The chaos endured on Tuesday evening with Smackdown, because the blue logo noticed 12 superstars head to the display, with the most important names being Roman Reigns, Finn Balor, and NXT callup Kairi Sane. Whilst the evening was once all about making a “shakeup” for the roster, there have been some entertaining moments all over the night time. Here is the whole lot you want to learn about what came about on Smackdown.
The primary individual to move over to the blue logo is none rather than Finn Balor, a person misplaced within the shuffle on Uncooked. Is there a rule that Balor and AJ Types cannot be at the identical logo on the identical time? Are we now not allowed to look Bullet Membership leaders in a contention? Regardless, with Balor comes the Intercontinental Championship. So, Smackdown can have each america and Intercontinental Championships, which is just a little bizarre. Perhaps we’re going to no less than get a Balor Membership reunions with the Just right Brothers, despite the fact that.
Kevin Owens + New Day = The Easiest
The New Day is within the spot they must be on Smackdown: the primary match. They open the display, they leap round all over the center, and so they shut issues out. Sure, that is numerous display screen time, however it is no other than another WWE champion. Including Kevin Owens to the combination this week was once numerous amusing. Not anything large got here out of this, but it surely was once a pride.
The place’s Tyler Breeze?
That is extra of a grievance from my finish, however what is going on with Tyler Breeze? I in reality concept he’d come over to Smackdown, particularly after Xavier Woods stated on reside TV, “If I do not see Tyler Breeze on Smackdown via the tip of this display, I will lose my thoughts.” Woods has made point out of this on Twitter a couple of instances too. In case you watch Up Up Down Down, then you already know the 2 are buddies, and you probably have watched WWE programming, then you already know Breeze is outstandingly gifted within the ring and at the mic. What is going on?
Wait…. I believed he was once on Uncooked. What’s going on? Afterward in this system, it was once introduced Sullivan was once now on Smackdown. Wasn’t he simply introduced as a member of Uncooked the day past? Is WWE already retconning one thing for 24 hours in the past? This makes totally no sense.
The Overly-Layered Ladies’s Section
All over a Becky Lynch promo, Ember Moon and Bayley interrupted and introduced that they had moved to the blue logo. Moon is an unbelievable addition to the roster and can carry so much to the ladies’s roster there. The Iiconics interrupted and mentioned their championship titles. Then, proceeding with the large shakeup, Paige interrupted the interruption to introduce the challengers for the ladies’s tag crew championships–which was once additionally interrupted via Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. Anyway, the brand new tag crew at the block is Asuka and the pirate princess Kairi Sane. Smackdown’s girls’s department is having a look stacked. I will not wait to look Sane drop that elbow on everybody.
The Persisted Destruction Of 205 Reside
It is no secret the ranks of 205 Reside are thinning, after [Mustafa] Ali joined Smackdown a couple of months again and Cedric Alexander moved to Uncooked on Monday. Now, Friend Murphy is headed to Smackdown. You are more than likely greater than conversant in the previous Cruiserweight Champion, as he was once persistently striking on a health facility on PPV Kickoff displays, protecting his identify. He’s a greater than great addition to Smackdown, even though WWE’s primary rosters are over-stuffed.
Vince’s Giant Announcement
Vince McMahon got here out to announce his giant acquisition, and it is Elias. On the other hand, that wasn’t all. Roman Reigns got here out, beat up Elias and McMahon and introduced he is a part of Smackdown. With the Tuesday evening display sooner or later shifting to Fox, this can be a nice get for the weekly collection, and they’re going to want a large title to attract in audience.
