WWE Rumors: Why Shinsuke Nakamura debuted on Smackdown over Raw

Mahal was in the final three competitors, and he got in the face of Rob Gronkowski (Rawley's good friend) at ringside. Things are "shaking up", if you will.

Last week's announcement of WWE's Superstar Shake-up promised to change the landscapes of Raw and SmackDown Live significantly, and with the pseudo-draft officially in the books, it's safe to say it was successful in doing just that. "Asian, fan favorites are a rarity in North America, but the fans seem to adore the charismatic former MMA star".

If Owens and Zayn are the "trade" for Dean Ambrose and The Miz, SmackDown is the early victor in this shakeup.

Terrance "Rhyno" Guido Gerin and his tag-team partner Heath Slater will be part of the Monday night show starting next week.

After what happened in the opening segment, a triple threat match among AJ Styles, Corbin, and Sami Zayn took place to determine the number one contender for the United States title. Also, imagine the Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura feud! He'll prove to be the best NXT call-up ever.

AJ Styles - Unfortunately, we didn't have a monster flipping any large emergency vehicles on SmackDown, so there wasn't an obvious pick this week. At the moment, the United States title is more important than the World Heavyweight title. Among the names that were traded from Smackdown Live to Monday Night Raw are Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Alexa Bliss, The Miz, Maryse, Apollo Crews and Mickie James. The switches were obvious but instantly changes up the respective midcards.

I legitimately laughed when Tamina entered, but the swerve also took away from Charlotte's announcement.

Here's a look at SmackDown viewership in 2017 as opposed to Raw numbers from the same week.

If an incoming wrestler was unable to earn Undertaker's respect in the lockerroom, he was more than likely doomed with the entire lockerroom. Returning Hardy Boyz adds something fun to RAW but it seems temporary. They are excellent additions to Team Red, though it remains to be seen whether they will receive the same high-profile opportunities on Raw.

Wonga suffers data breach 'affecting 245000 United Kingdom customers'
Police are now investigating the incident, which has been reported to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). A further 25,000 customers in Poland were also potentially affected, the report said .

The rating war between Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live is at its peak. But I expect the impending Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor feud to trump all the rest.

Kevin Owens is now a part of SmackDown Live.

While I like Ziggler as Nakamura's first rivalry, it's unfortunate that he's just going to do another job.

Furthermore, the tag team scenes on both brands were altered a bit. No real pairings were torn apart.

WWE has been it's most entertaining in some time post-Wrestlemania this year, and tonight's Superstar Shakeup could be a strong catalyst for keeping that momentum rolling into the summer. Seeing The New Day on Smackdown is going to open up a whole new door to some awesome work. She would be wasted in a feud with Nia Jax.

In the ring - Shane McMahon announces new women's division members: A promo aired a couple times noting McMahon had a major announcement to make about the women's division. Both shows have very different takes on their females and that's great!

Rather than apologise for a corporate culture built around hazing and "weeding out the weak", or even admonish the main perpetrator JBL, WWE are instead dealing with the growing media storm by ejecting fans with anti-bullying signs.

Adam Cole is rumored to be WWE-bound in the future, and if Cole had his way, he would start off at NXT. A lot of fresh faces shining while older names are starting to put over newer ones.
