Smackdown Superstar Shake Up

Here are the match results, my match ratings and review for this weeks episode of Smackdown.


AJ Styles kicked off Smackdown and he called out Nakamura but he got Rusev. There was a short match between Rusev and Styles that was interrupted by English. After a short beat down Daniel Bryan made the save.

Shelton Benjamin did an in ring promo. He asked for competition and he got Orton but then out came Jeff Hardy who ran past Orton taking his place in the match.

There is no question that Smackdown got the better deal when it comes to the Shake Up. Samoa Joe was the biggest name and arguably a game changer for this show, he is a great heel and could have some amazing battles with many on this roster. Jeff Hardy is another who is a big name that can help Smackdown, he has a massive fan base and getting him away from his brother was a brilliant move. I am really excited to see what Sanity bring to the show but am also slightly baffled that Nikki Cross is not moving up with the others. Big Cass returning and moving to Smackdown is perfect for him and the show, it looks like he will jump straight in to a feud with Daniel Bryan and I can see him winning it thanks to The Miz. That is the big match everyone is no really excited and if they do it right it could be a huge match for maybe Summerslam. Asuka is a huge boost to the women’s division and now Carmella is really gonna have trouble holding that belt for a long time. I was surprised to see The Bar added but they are going to give the tag team division a huge boost. I am really looking forward to see Andrade Cien Almas on Smackdown he has the potential to be a huge star and a top guy on Smackdown. I am liking what they are doing with Nakamura, he is 100 times more interesting now than he has been since he came to the WWE. I like the look of the roster but I still have no confidence in Road Dogg and the rest of the creative team for Smackdown to make this any better than it has been for the past few months.
