April 22, 2019 Observer Newsletter: WWE Superstar Shake-up results, more

The WWE Superstar Shakeup came across flat this year, likely because much of the roster is considered by fans as interchangeable midcarders.

There was some major movement, the biggest being Roman Reigns being moved to Smackdown and A.J. Styles to Raw. There was also a switch of secondary titles with Finn Balor and the IC title going to Smackdown and Samoa Joe and the U.S. title going to Raw, for a planned feud with Braun Strowman to get Strowman back up and running.

The latter hasn’t been announced yet. It was scheduled for Raw, but Joe was in Montreal for Raw and got so sick that he was taken off the show and the announcement of his moving brands was delayed for a week.

Right now, the idea is that the women’s champions, double champion Becky Lynch and tag team champions Billie Kay & Peyton Royce will be working both brands and have different challengers on each brand.
