If the past is anything to go by, straight up to the shoulder.

You said Nak/AJ were pushed to the side and i disagree...they were given the biggest match on smackdown at wrestlemania...and according to you and the IWC (which has been infuriating recently) the match was bad. So who's fault was that? Sounds more like the talent than anything.

the brand split sucks

re: Superstar Shake-up The Aftermath

Personally, I love how RAW is filled with Vince's and Trips' boys allowing a fairer chance to the boys on SD. I mean, look at the initial split, for 6 months SD was so damn good because Vince and Triple H were neutral on all of them and there wasn't a lot of bias.

re: Superstar Shake-up The Aftermath

I don't think they'll be that bad. Raw I think is over packed with talent at the moment, especially with the talent that got called up from NXT, so it's a good time for this superstar shakeup to be happening.

I expect Big Cass to goto SD, as well as Miz & the Miztourage, along with perhaps Joe, and maybe Balor and Gallows & Anderson. Rollins too. Maybe also they can put Ambrose on SD Live for when he comes back from his injury in a few months.

It was good at first - Owens head butting Vince was great, Zayn grew into his annoying heel role well but it got pretty stale after a while.
The saving grace to this feud was that Bryan returned to in ring action or else it wouldn't have been as memorable.

AJ v Nakamura only started to heat up in the last week or two. Before that, the feud felt very empty in my opinion and the only thing that carried it along the way was that it was a "dream match". Having two faces never really works...I like what they're doing with Nak now though. So that's a plus.

I think this upcoming shake-up will help the SD creative team out though. So here's to hoping for the best.

re: Superstar Shake-up The Aftermath

Probably not as bad as last year. AJ looks like he's staying since he didn't drop the title. And they definitely aren't putting Bryan on Raw. Think about it guys - if Bryan is on Raw the golden boy is going to be hated 10x more. They aren't going to take that chance.

SD will also likely get Asuka, Bayley and/or Sasha, and The Bar. Balor, Rollins, and Miz might come over too, though I'm not as sure on those. Honestly, I think SD is looking very bright right now. It got out of Mania much better than Raw did.

re: Superstar Shake-up The Aftermath

I do think people need to temper their expectations somewhat. Raw is and always will be their baby. They will always make sure that show is stocked up first.

SD is already getting a treat by most likely keeping AJ, Naka, and Bryan. I for sure see them getting Miz. But the talk of them getting Joe, Rollins, Balor, etc.? I mean that's like all of Raw's current mid card. They will not gut Raw even if they got names like Orton, Owens, Zayn, etc. in return.

It's possible they get one of those 3 names, and it's possible they get none. So again, let's temper our expectations here.

re: Superstar Shake-up The Aftermath

Miz and Rollins are already booked for Backlash, so unless the mid-card titles swap again, they both probably stay. Balor has a better chance of jumping ship.

That's fairly easy to get around. Let's say Miz is traded to Smackdown, but Rollins isn't. So if Miz wins at Backlash, he takes the IC Championship with him.

Makes the match predictable but this is WWE, there is no rule or stipulation they won't get out of if they have to.
