The Superstar Shakeup has finally happened again. It’s a yearly occurrence and often times, we leave the shakeup very dissastisfied. However, that isn’t the case this year… at least not for the Smark to Death Podcast.
I’ll spend the rest of this blog post telling you why I’m okay with what happened with the Superstar Shakeup and it surrounds the Shield (just as everything else in the WWE Universe does).
Roman Reigns moving to Smackdown Live is the best thing for business.
The reason I believe this is simply because we will finally see Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns on different brands as the top guys which means new matchups, new built contenders, and fresh feuds will finally happen for these two. They have been with each other from the very beginning whether together as the Shield, separate as enemies, or separate as nearly evenly matched babyfaces.
So, Roman going over to Smackdown Live to boost ratings for Fox is the best thing possible. Roman Vs Kofi sounds good to me. What about Roman vs Daniel Bryan? Or even Roman vs Buddy Murphy. This is absolutely fantastic news. And we can now get to that Aj Styles vs Seth Rollins match over on RAW that we’ve all desperately wanted over the last few years.
Remember this when you look at the way things are setup now for the WWE after the Superstar Shakeup. Sometimes the moves that make you mad are the ones that make the most sense. A lot of people are upset that Roman was the big acquisition (as if that wasn’t apparent from the beginning) and I don’t agree. The Big Dog being on the blue brand will help us be more intrigued by WWE programming going forward.
