Shaking things up

Superstar Shakeup 2017 is in the books, and overall I'm impressed with how it was executed. There weren't any splits of tag teams or manager/valet setups, which is good. Lana is staying with Rusev on SmackDown Live and the Miz and Maryse will remain a pair on Raw. I had concerns teams like the New Day or Enzo and Big Cass would end up getting separated.

It's interesting that Bray Wyatt is now on Raw. I'll be curious to see if there's any kind of interaction with Braun Strowaman on the show. It seems like neither man would really need to have their alliance anymore. I'm happy to see Charlotte Flair coming to SmackDown Live. As mentioned before, the Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte story was getting a bit stale. Injecting Alexa Bliss into the Raw Women's Championship picture is great, but all signs are pointing to a Sasha heel turn, at least it appears that way to me. I'm hoping Tamina is ready to get back into the ring because the SDL women's roster lost two full-time and talented women along with Maryse (I don't know how much more she'll wrestle).

I'm not sure why they traded the Intercontinental and U.S. champions between shows, but I'm glad they didn't keep both champs on the same show. Maybe the IC title will get some shine on Raw with Universal Champion Brock Lesnar being a part-time Superstar. I believe Kevin Owens will beat Chris Jericho at Payback and remain on SDL. But I was hoping for a faction with him, Samoa Joe and possibly Cesaro on Raw. 

The rosters have new looks for the post-WrestleMania season. Change is good and I'm looking forward to the build up to Money in the Bank (I'll be there) and SummerSlam.
