WWE has confirmed when it will hold its next Superstar Shake-Up. A commercial aired earlier this week during Monday Night RAW in Canada to promote the upcoming RAW and SmackDown tapings on April 15th and 16th in Montreal. The commercial was promoting “the first international Superstar Shake-up” for the shows. After much speculation on social media, WWE has finally confirmed the news to be true.
They released the following YouTube video:
Last year’s Superstar Shake-Up took place on April 16th and 17th. Some of the more notable names to switch brands included Jeff Hardy, Kevin Owens, Dolph Ziggler, Samoa Joe, The Bar, Jinder Mahal, Baron Corbin, and more. It will be interesting to see which names move where this year.
Especially with SmackDown Live heading to FOX in October, and WWE likely having big changes planned for the program. It has been reported that FOX would like to have former UFC women’s bantamweight champion and current RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey on the blue brand.
FOX aims to present SmackDown as more of a sports show than a comedy. The presence of figures like Rousey would certainly help out in that aspect.
