Last year when the Superstar Shake-up came around it was a little bit shocking when so many top stars made the move over to Smackdown Live as it left Raw very weak. Looking over the last twelve months we saw one of the worst years overall for the WWE in history and now is the company's chance to hit the reset button to move forward. In my opinion, both Raw and Smackdown have talent that really need to switch brands and have some fresh eyes on them because they have been in the same place since the start of the split three years ago.
Seeing names like AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio, The Miz, Viking Experience and others move to Raw is sort of the type of shake-up I for one expected to see last year and was dumbfounded when it didn't happen that way. As I mentioned earlier AJ Styles was absolutely one of those top stars that was in desperate need of a change as he has been on Smackdown since the start of the brand split three years ago. It is crazy to think that we haven't seen AJ Styles on Raw for the most part since 2016 and that for me is the reason why the brand split is such a good thing for the company. I also want to point out with Miz being a baby face now it would be a refreshing sight to see him have a deeper roster of heels to go against then he did on Smackdown.
Speaking of Smackdown Live I know that a "Big Dog" made the switch which was expected after AJ made the jump to the red brand. However, I think some other top stars will make the change to a fresh crop of talent onto the blue brand ahead of their big move to Fox this fall. They want to start building things up on Smackdown before October and this is their only chance for that in my book.
