WWE introduced a new Wild Card Rule on this week’s episode of Raw which will allow 4 stars from both Raw and SmackDown rosters to appear on the other brand at any given week.

However, while Vince McMahon confirmed the SmackDown side of names which are allowed to appear on the company’s flagship show, they didn’t confirm their Raw counterparts, leaving fans wondering.

While not confirmed, now the current travel schedule for the upcoming WWE European tour appears to have revealed some names belonging to the Red Brand which can show up on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live.

The schedules for the tour are based on the rosters prior to the Superstar Shakeup and two of the top Raw names which are scheduled to travel with SmackDown are AJ Styles and the current United States Champion Samoa Joe.

Not only them but The Usos and Naomi are also booked to travel with the Blue roster and it’s possible that these stars make an appearance on the SmackDown episode this week.

On the contrary, since the Raw roster is heading overseas for the tour, Roman Reigns who will be traveling with them will not be able to appear on the Blue Branded Show this week. 

Though as we noted before, it appears that the company is still figuring out the regulations for this rule and it’s possible that this line-up changes later on. You can check out their explanation of the Wild Card Rule here.
