Reported that the Shake-Up will span RAW and SDL.

So.....Owens going to Smackdown then? I know Vince favors RAW, but you can't have both the IC and US Titles on the same show in a brand split.

I wasn't expecting to see Gamma Ray Braun.  If he's not getting a win, they are wasting time.
Did they say if Charlotte was staying?  She could use the move.

They did not say anything about Charlotte specifically. It will probably be her + 1 more moving to SDL's women's division.

It's like they want The Braun Strow Man to be the top babyface. I thought Roman was handled perfectly last week. Now he's a bbyface in peril which hasn't worked for three years.

I'm pretty sure Reigns is still the baby face and Braun is the heel, despite the complete opposite crowd reactions.


You guys gave Reigns way too much credit last week for his promo, which he did nothing but stand there.


Reigns cut a baby face interview right before Braun assaulted him. Faces don't assault people like that. Maybe Stone Cold in the attitude era, but he was Stone Cold.

She has lost to all the top contenders.  I think it was a little soon to swing that pendulum for her.  It is kinda sad that I think SD would be the best move for her.

The RAW Women's division is loaded, they have to lose a major player or two right now and Charlotte works best. I'd like to see Emma move over as well as she shines when she is given time.

As far as Roman goes, he really plays the cocky heel very well. So stupid to book him like Super Cena and feed him Strowman in the process. Vince will never learn.

Apparently there was a post-RAW "Fallout" video where two announcers swapped brands. I updated the summary in the OP.

Kevin Owens with a shave and a suit is an exponentially a better look.

Being reported Balor suffered a concussion at the forearm Mahal threw at him during the match. He did look fucked up when Wyatt's promo aired.

Balor is having some bad luck on the main roster. He is going to get ziggerled real quick. AT least Vince can go back to the Roman Reigns well :dash_mini: :dash_mini:

Well no surgery this for this plus his fued with Wyatt can keep going on air without any matches til he's cleared again.

Just a bad forearm by Mahal. Finn was out before he hit the mat, you can tell by the way he landed on his head. He's really lucky he didn't suffer any neck damage as it was an ugly fall.

First Rollins and now Mahal. Bad luck Finn or do they hate him?

That slo-mo of the forearm showed how stiff that was. You could see Finn's face ripple from the impact, and yeah, the way he kinda dropped and crumpled you could tell he was out for a moment.

Nice knowing you, Mahal. Wow.

Owens vs AJ could be the MOTY.   


Charlotte looks so out of place. I figured they would send someone else with her. 


Shinsuke and Dolph could have a match that plays to both of their strengths.


What is happening to Lana?

With the Lana I think they're going to semi-split her and Risev up and have them do they own thing

Charlotte looked like a million bucks. That entire women's segment really put the division over. Bliss in Raw will be great too. Best facial expressions in the business.


 I know you guys think Roman cut a master promo last week standing still while getting booed as a baby face, but Owens actually has the fans in the palm of his hands. He was cheered walking in and turned it around as a heel with his actual words.


I was worried Vince wouldn't know what to do with Nakamura on the main roster, luckily the fans eat him up just by his appearance in the ring.



I love the shake up on both shows.
