SmackDown Star being moved back to Raw?

While the speculations of another superstar shakeup turned out to be an overblown rumor, it appears a top SmackDown Star could still possibly be moving to Raw.

During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez talked about the upcoming Hell In A Cell match between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon and speculated that Owens could be moved back to the Red Brand.

According to Alvarez, the outcome of this match is not set in stone yet and Officials are considering several possible follow-ups for this bout, including the one which involves Kevin changing Brands once again.

What’s interesting to note here is that amidst these rumors several fans have reported that Kevin is being advertised for an upcoming Raw episode on October 16th RAW in Portland, OR on Facebook. Below is a screenshot of the advertisement:


Another sign of this storyline is the appearance of Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon during the recent segment between the former Universal Champion and Mr. McMahon. It’s speculated that her appearance would be used for storyline purpose in near future.

If Kevin Owens does end up leaving SmackDown Live, it’d be interesting to see if the Blue Brand gets a replacement for him and who it turns out to be.

    I don’t know why they made Roode a face to begin with he was a great heel on NXT.

    Balor. You can replace Owens by turning Roode or Orton heel while adding Balor to the Fan Favorite side with AJ and Nakamura

  • Nicholas2778

    If Smackdown get Strowman who is a huge draw right now it would be good for Smackdown.

  • Maurice

    Don’t feel Owens should be moved back to Raw because he’s one of the best things Smackdown has the only way it turns out to be a good thing is if they trade him for Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family reforms and they actually allow bray wyatt to have a career

  • Arnold Jackson

    Move Bray, he is being killed on RAW

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Move Braun Strowman to Smackdown because you can’t keep him out of the WWE title picture to long.

  • Will Henderson

    i think Owens would be traded to Raw and SmackDown in return gets Braun Strowman or Finn Balor, and truth be told, SmackDown feels more like a developmental brand to Raw then NXT is to the entire WWE.
