After Raw went off the air on Monday night, WWE.com posted an article stating Vince Mcmahon was set to announce the biggest acquisition in SmackDown history.
With AJ Styles closing Monday night's episode of Raw as the big mover to the red brand during the Superstar Shake-up, fans were left to wonder what would happen on tomorrow’s SmackDown Live and who would be the big get for the blue brand?
Well, according to WWE.com, Vince McMahon is set to announce the biggest acquisition in SmackDown Live Superstar Shake-up history. The official website for WWE wrote:
The first night of the Superstar Shake-up was thrilling, to say the least. Although SmackDown LIVE is saying goodbye to Superstars like AJ Styles, The Miz, Rey Mysterio and Naomi, there is still plenty of intrigue as to who will be joining Team Blue.
The mystery has been heightened by Mr. McMahon, who will be revealing the biggest acquisition in SmackDown LIVE history tonight. Who has the WWE Chairman secured for the blue brand?
This is a pretty lofty statement from WWE considering in the history of the Superstar Shake-up, SmackDown has grabbed some massive stars in the past. The question left to ask is, 'who on WWE’s current Raw roster is bigger than some of the other names already selected in SmackDown's selection history?'
What This Means
Speculation will run wild all day Tuesday for WWE fans. Eagerly awaiting who this Superstar is, assumptions will range from Vince grabbing a huge name like Roman Reigns to grabbing a “huge” superstar like Braun Strowman. Either way, the name should allow the blue brand to get back a little bit of what it lost when it saw names like Styles, the Usos, Miz, Rey Mysterio, Ricochet and Aleister Black officially picked up by Raw.
Add all this to the fact that WWE has already teased that Paige will debut a new tag team on the blue brand that many believe will be Kairi Sane and Iro Shirai.
