Smackdown Live Recap – Superstar Shake up (April 17, 2018)

Sorry this is a few days late, but here is the rest of the superstar shake up.

We only knew of one person who was going over to Smackdown, the Miz. Unfortunately, the A-lister was not there. He had sent a video of him and his family saying that he wouldn’t show up until next weeks Smackdown Live.

One of the big shockers was Jeff Hardy, the current United States Champion, went to Smackdown. I thought they might switch titles to go back on the other brand, the Intercontinental and the United States. With Matt Hardy being Woken and Bray Wyatt being his new tag team partner, I had a feeling the Hardy Boys would go different directions.

Since the new general manager of Smackdown is Paige, I figured Absolution would follow over to team blue, which they did. Since the Riott Squad went over to Raw. Speaking of the Women’s Division, the empress of tomorrow, Asuka is on Smackdown.

After losing her streak to the Queen, Charlotte Flair, at Wrestle Mania 34, it would make sense to switch her over to team blue. I’m now wondering if Asuka is going to try a beat her old streak?

Another big shocked was seeing Big Cass, he was out on injury for a while, but he’s back! However, Carmella, the current Smackdown Women’s Champion and first Money in the Bank winner, and Big Cass did date, but things ended last year. Maybe they will relight their old flame?

The one person that we didn’t hear about, from either Raw or Smackdown, was Dean Ambrose. Currently, he has been out of action for 4 months and has been expected to be out for another 5 months. Unfortunately, because Dean Ambrose doesn’t use social media, we may not know the state of his condition anytime soon. It might just be a surprise, but let’s hope he recovers fast!
