SAnitY finally arrived on SmackDown Live this week and faced off against The Usos. It has been two months since they were called up.
It has become tradition after WrestleMania for WWE to shake up their roster. Aptly named the Superstar Shakeup, men, women, and tag teams are moved between Raw and SmackDown Live. That's not all. Superstars are also called up from NXT, and some notable ones this go around included Drew McIntyre, The IIconics, and former NXT Women's Champion Ember Moon.
SmackDown Live also managed to accrue the services of SAnitYy. Howevtwo tow months passed and there was no sign of the insane trio on Tuesday nights. There has been speculation that a certain trademark relating to the group had to be filed before they could appear on television, and also that WWE simply didn't want them getting lost in the shuffle due to the many NXT call-ups.
Whatever the issue was it seems to have been cleared up now as SAnitY made their long-awaited debut on SmackDown Live this week. Two members of the trio were slated to go up against The Usos in tag team action, however, the match never happened. Instead, Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, and Killian Dain came to the ring and beat down Jimmy and Jey, presumably to send a message that they have indeed arrived.
While it's great to see SAnitY on the main roster, some fans are disappointed that only three of the faction's four members have made it. Nikki Cross, who is arguably the group's most unhinged member, remains in NXT, losing to Shayna Baszler at TakeOver: Chicago last weekend. Cross will likely rejoin the rest of SAnitY at some point, but for now, she has unfinished business at Full Sail.
The SmackDown Live tag team division is incredibly strong right now. The Usos, New Day, Bludgeon Brothers, Gallows & Anderson, it's an impressive list. Now you can officially add SAnitY into the mix, things are about to get even better. The division didn't get much of a spotlight in the build to Money In The Bank, hopefully, things will be different between now and the next PPV, Extreme Rules.
