Following an impressive WrestleMania 33 showcase, WWE chairman Vince McMahon last week announced that there would be a "superstar shakeup" at Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.

The "superstar shakeup" was supposed to be done via trades and other moves between the red and blue brands; however, the entertainment company has not disclosed how they reached the decision to move one wrestler from one brand to the other.

Raw general manager, Kurt Angle, and SmackDown Live manager, Daniel Bryan, have not said anything about the "superstar shakeup". But on Raw following the Grandest Stage Of Them All, Angle said he would not force Seth Rollins to move to SmackDown Live.

As of now the following superstars have changed their brands:

New superstars on Monday Night Raw

Bray Wyatt

The Eater of Worlds is the number one contender for the WWE Championship. His feud with the current champion Randy Orton started a year ago. The two stars squared for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 33, where Wyatt lost his title to his rival. They are scheduled to fight in a House of Horrors match at Raw exclusive PPV show Payback on 30 April.

Dean Ambrose

As SmackDown Live already has a United States champion in Kevin Owens, the Intercontinental champion's move to Raw is indeed strange. To balance out the number of championships between the two brands, Owens' move to SmackDown Live should happen.

Alexa Bliss

Sending Alex Bliss to Raw could be a move to bring Charlotte Flair to SmackDown Live and make the latter the Women's champion at the blue brand.

The Miz and Maryse

The long-running feud between Daniel Bryan and The Miz might have ended with the wrestler now at Raw along with Maryse.

Mickie James

The former Diva's champion also joined Raw. It will be interesting to see what happens as Alex Bliss, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Charlotte Flair are also in the running for the Women's Championship.


It seems like Kalisto's move to Raw could be a move for the wrestler to join the cruiserweight division.

Apollo Crews

Crews wasn't able to showcase his talents at SmackDown Live. He could change the tide in his favour now that he is in Raw.

Heath Slater and Rhyno

Heath Slater and Rhyno's move to Raw is also strange as the Raw tag team division is filled with amazing talents such as the Hardy Boyz.

Curt Hawkins

The wrestler received not so memorable welcome as the Big Show delivered a knockout punch on the former.

Elias Samson

The wrestler has moved from NXT.
