Reason for Lars Sullivan being moved to Smackdown Live

Lars Sullivan

After a few months since his main roster call-up, Lars Sullivan finally made his main roster debut. He suffered a panic attack before he was supposed to debut on RAW a few months ago and his programme with John Cena was cancelled.

Sullivan showed up on the RAW and SmackDown Live following WrestleMania and demolished fan-favorite superstars. He also did the same thing this week as well. Him appearing on RAW during the Superstar Shake-Up made fans believe that he would be staying on RAW, but then it was made official that Sullivan is actually on Smackdown Live the next night.

It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Lars Sullivan was moved to Smackdown Live so that he and Braun Strowman could be on different brands. So each main roster brand has its own monster.

We will have to wait and see how Lars Sullivan fares on Smackdown Live.

    What is it with this guy and especially UK guys not wearing knee pads? Like, do you know what you do?

  • R.T. Red

    I always appreciate and tend to agree with your view and opinions on here

  • Nick Scott

    Anyone else smell that?
    Reaks of Survivor Series team building already

  • JC Bolden

    Interaction at Surviror Series, another at Royal Rumble, and then a mania match if they touch. This was a good call

  • Jamie

    I agree 100% with you on everything you just said. Maybe at Survivor series if they do a raw vs smackdown themed show again then they could have some sort of interaction together.

    I hope WWE learn to wait until after WM for the NXT call up to the main roster. Because Sullivan wasn’t ready for the Wrestlemania season.

    But what done is done an yes it to soon to have Braun Strowman and Sullivan on the same brand. Also it better to have Strowman on Raw then Sullivan. But there still going to be presure on Smackdown when they move to Fox so I hope Sullivan is ready because it going to be a different Smackdown come October.

    I would say it was more to protect him rather than having a monster on each brand.
    If he was on RAW then it would only be a matter of time before he and Braun come to blows, and they would either have to have Braun lose to him (not a good move right now if they want to keep Braun strong) or would have to him lose to Braun which would kill him dead in an instant before he is even established.

    Stick him on Smackdown and let him be fully built up as a monster and then down the line you have him and Braun go face to face.
