*OFFICIAL* SmackDown Discussion Thread: 11th April 2017

Quote from:
The first night of WWE’s Superstar Shake-up changed the very landscape of Monday Night Raw, but what do SmackDown LIVE Commission Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan have up their sleeve in retaliation? Have the competitors heading to Team Red provided the WWE Universe clues as to who is headed to the blue brand tonight?

For instance, one day after the fans found out Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose would be making Raw his home, could United States Champion Kevin Owens be heading to SmackDown LIVE to balance the title picture?

After Raw General Manager Kurt Angle indicated that Sami Zayn is very important to both brands, is The Underdog from the Underground destined to battle the likes of Baron Corbin and AJ Styles beginning tonight? With word that Alexa Bliss and Mickie James are now a part of Team Red, is WWE’s flagship show likely to lose Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Emma or even Raw Women’s Champion Bayley?

While we’re on the subject of titles, what happens if Raw’s Women’s or Tag Team Champions are sent to SmackDown LIVE? If Raw Tag Team Champions The Hardy Boys, for example, end up on Tuesday nights, does that mean we will have two tag team champions on one show and none on the other?

Speaking of tag team action, Commissioner Shane McMahon announced on WWE Network’s Talking Smack last week that American Alpha will get their SmackDown Tag Team Championship rematch against The Usos tonight on SmackDown LIVE... assuming both teams are still on the blue brand following the WWE Superstar Shake-up that is.

Can Jason Jordan & Chad Gable overcome Jimmy & Jey Uso and reclaim the titles they had a stranglehold on for months? Or, will The Usos keep Jordan & Gable in a perpetual state of paranoia, leading to their first successful title defense? Will the match even take place?

Last night, we learned that Bray Wyatt is now a Raw Superstar and that his WWE Title House of Horrors Match against WWE Champion Randy Orton will take place at WWE Payback, a Raw-exclusive event.

How will The Viper respond to the news? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE.

Last week, Shinsuke Nakamura and Tye Dillinger debuted on SmackDown LIVE to an incredible reception. In the land of opportunity, arguably no two Superstars are more suited for the blue brand.

But, as the Superstar Shake-up continues, will their stay on Team Blue prove short-lived? Or, are huge Superstars like Braun Strowman and Big Show on their way from Raw to try and crush the hopes and dreams of these up-and-comers before they’ve cleaned out their NXT lockers?

Find out the answers to this and more when the Superstar Shake-up continues, tonight on SmackDown LIVE.

An interesting continuation of the "Superstar Shake-up", with the following moving to SmackDown from Raw:

  • Byron Saxton (Commentary)
  • Kevin Owens (United States Champion) - or Chris Jericho if the title changes hands at Payback
  • Sami Zayn
  • "Shining Stars" Primo and Epico
  • Tamina
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Sin Cara
  • Rusev and Lana
  • "The New Day" Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods

A feud between Dolph Ziggler and Shinsuke Nakamura sounds like an great idea to me and I look forward to seeing it progress from here.
