Four WWE wrestlers change brands after Superstar Shake-up


Despite the Superstar Shake-up being last week, it seems that WWE is not done moving people around.

Dave Meltzer has confirmed Pro Wrestling Sheet’s report this afternoon that Andrade and Zelina Vega were moved back to SmackDown after initially being moved to Raw. Additionally, Aleister Black’s profile has been moved from Raw over to SmackDown and will be part of that brand going forward. He and Ricochet had been teaming up since being called up from NXT, and were confirmed to be a part of the Raw brand last week.

Additionally, Meltzer has confirmed that Cesaro has been moved to the Raw brand. This would effectively break up The Bar tag team with him and Sheamus. John Pollock was the first to report the move.

It should be noted that with the changes, WWE has attempted to keep most of the couples on the roster in the same brand. Black and Vega were married recently, and Andrade is currently in a relationship with Charlotte Flair.

Other couples, such as Naomi and Jimmy Uso, were also moved together in the Superstar Shake-up.
