Adjust Comment Print

This week, both Raw and SmackDown Live really get into that idea of refreshing storylines and rosters with the Superstar Shakeup.

Usually the first hour averages more viewers than hour two and three, but this week, the second hour had the highest average of viewers. If this rumor turns out to be true Monday nights will become phenomenal.

The Miz: This was a move that some expected, and the announcement was played out to perfection with Angle revealing it was Daniel Bryan who lobbied for Miz to be sent over to SmackDown.

As you can see, tonight is going to be another exciting one on WWE SmackDown, which seems to be a brand on the rise after an exciting first show after WrestleMania.

Jinder Mahal and Sunni Singh - the United States champion opened RAW with his arrival, before dropping the title to Jeff Hardy, making the Charismatic Enigma a Grand Slam Champion in the process. It was reported that he was backstage over the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an appearance.

Good news for the Yep Movement: RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon had chose to overrule general manager Kurt Angle's decision to not hire either man after their stalemate last week, and the duo had been signed to RAW. Jinder Mahal. The arena is chanting "RUSEV DAY", and here's the man we all hate the most coming out to stake his claim on Raw. There were no other developments from this moment.

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn: The explanation of Stephanie McMahon overruling Angle's decision from last week was logical, but if she was such a fan of Owens & Zayn. then why didn't she hire them immediately when they were fired from her brother's show?

Algeria, Egypt regret Western air strikes against Syria
Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for OPCW's findings before attacking. Mr Corbyn warned of an escalation in a "proxy war" between the USA and Russian Federation .

Seth Rollins took up the Intercontinental champion belt.

In addition to all of that, Angle announces that Daniel Bryan wants Miz back on Smackdown.

Even though the leader of Absolution, Paige, is not the SmackDown General Manager, Mandy Rose doesn't have to go at it alone.

Here's everything that happened Monday night.

While the Riott Squad gets a rather unceremonious introduction to Raw, essentially repeating what they've done on SmackDown, another great use of the Shakeup to tell stories comes with Miz TV. They proceed to give them tickets. Seeing they'll be 30,00 feet above the Atlantic Ocean when SmackDown airs, they'll be missing tonight's show.

The Queen is arguably the biggest full-time star in the entire division, and Raw would be able to offer her fresh feuds against the likes of Nia Jax, Ronda Rousey, Moon and Bliss.
