Complete list of roster changes from the Superstar Shake-Up

On Monday, Stephanie McMahon stated that the Sueprstar Shake-Up will run through the end of Smackdown. So, barring any changing of minds, here is the list of roster changes.


  • AJ Styles (from Smackdown)
  • Aleister Black (from NXT)
  • Andrade (w/Zelina Vega) (from Smackdown)
  • Cedric Alexander (from 205 Live)
  • EC3 (from NXT)
  • Eric Young (from Smackdown)
  • Lacey Evans (from NXT)
  • Miz (from Smackdown)
  • Naomi (from Smackdown)
  • Rey Mysterio (from Smackdown)
  • Ricochet (from NXT)
  • Usos (Jimmy & Jey from Smackdown)
  • Viking Experience ( NXT Tag Champions)


  • Apollo Crews (from Raw)
  • Bayley (from Raw)
  • Buddy Murphy (from 205 Live)
  • Chad Gable (from Raw)
  • Elias (from Raw)
  • Ember Moon (from Raw)
  • Finn Balor (Intercontinental Champion from Raw)
  • Heavy Machinery (Otis & Tucker)
  • Kairi Sane (from NXT)
  • Lars Sullivan (from NXT)
  • Liv Morgan (from Raw)
  • Mickie James (from Raw)
  • Roman Reigns (from Raw)

This does raise some questions about teams and titles.

-Samoa Joe is the current US Champion, and Finn Balor is the current Intercontinental Champion. Both titles will likely not remain on one brand. Finn is set to defend the title on Sunday’s WWE Network Event, so he may lose the title to a Raw roster member. Or Joe may lose the US Title to somebody like Rey Mysterio, who is moving to Raw

-Bobby Roode and Chad Gable are a tag team, and recently turned heel. It’s possible they may be breaking up, but there may also be an explanation for Roode to follow Gable back to Smackdown. If only Gable moves, then why are teams getting chosen together when other teams are getting split up.

-The next major show is Money In The Bank. It may be likely that some feuds and roster changes may be finalized at that show. The Miz and Shane McMahon’s feud is a good example.
