When Monday Night Raw revealed their latest acquisition from Smackdown Live, WWE Universe was stunned when the Blue Brand let go some of its gems. Later today, Smackdown Live just showcased their new talents and the crowd went berserk especially when Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn made its presence felt.
Monday Night Raw
The rating war between Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live is at its peak. The Superstar Shakeup that was initiated by Vince McMahon didn’t only give opportunities to its talent but also a chance for the fans to see some of the stars compete in other brands. Among the names that were traded from Smackdown Live to Monday Night Raw are Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Alexa Bliss, The Miz, Maryse, Apollo Crews and Mickie James.
Kevin Owens And Sami Zayn
The names mentioned on top are widely considered as “A+ Players” in WWE. Smackdown Live fans were upset when they heard the news. However, Commissioner Shane McMahon has a lot of tricks up his sleeves. Smackdown Live started with a bang, to say the least when the United States Champion, Kevin Owens showed up. He was briefly interrupted by The Lone Wolf Baron Corbin. Owens continued to belittle the fans and then the crowd erupted when Sami Zayn came out on the entrance stage.
Tag Teams Added In The Blue Brand
After their segment, American Alpha and The Usos had an outstanding match. The Usos won and after the match, Team Alpha was attacked by Epico and Primo who were from Monday Night Raw. Just when Smackdown Live was about to go on commercial break, it was announced by the commentary team that the longest reigning tag team champion, The New Day, will be joining the Blue Brand next week.
Basing on the current roster Smackdown Live has, most of them were from the Indies promotion. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura have traveled around the world to seek greatness. Right now, they are on the same brand and WWE fans will surely witness why they are called the Indie legends.
