WWE Raw And Smackdown Rosters Change As Wrestlers Move Shows

It was a very interesting week for both Raw and Smackdown as the WWE announced its "Superstar Shake Up". Many top wrestlers are now part of a new show meaning there will be fresh feuds and matches for fans to see each and every week.

Here's the list of new Raw wrestlers: Dean Ambrose, The Miz, Maryse, Bray Wyatt, Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, Curt Hawkins, Apollo Crews, Kalisto, Heath Slater and Rhyno. Raw also gets a new announcer with David Otunga.

Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose are the biggest acquisitions. Not to mention the Raw Women's division is getting an upgrade with the pair of Alexa Bliss and Mickie James. It appears many of Raw's biggest stars are staying. Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor and Brock Lesnar are staying put.

Here's the list of new Smackdown wrestlers: Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Jinder Mahal, The Shining Stars, Sin Cara, Charlotte, Tamina, Rusev, Lana and The New Day. Bryon Saxton was moved from Raw over to Smackdown as he joins JBL and Tom Phillips in the commentary booth.

In my opinion, Smackdown got the short end of the stick. Top talents such as Randy Orton, AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura are staying put, although not many new main event talents were moved over. The only top singles stars added were Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Charlotte.

The likes of Jinder Mahal and The Shining Stars aren't going to excite any WWE fan. Fans were even chanting "delete" when The Shining Stars made their debuts on Smackdown. The tag team division though will see an added boost with the trio of The New Day hopping over.

Hopefully this "Superstar Shake Up" will enable the WWE to produce fresh new matches for both the wrestlers and the fans. For the past couple of months or so, it has been a little bit repetitive seeing the same wrestlers fighting each other week in and week out...
