WWE discussing another Superstar Shakeup for SmackDown’s move to Fox

Smackdown Live -Fox-WWE

Many believe that the things have been messed up with the introduction of the wild card rule and WWE should return to strictly implanting separate rosters for both Raw and SmackDown Live.

Previous reports suggest that the company is indeed looking for a hard split after SmackDown moves to Fox network and it appears that another Superstar Shakeup can be the way to do it.

According to latest reports from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, while nothing is confirmed the concept of another draft is being discussed in WWE internally and it could see the company making some small changes:

Right now there is a concept of another draft type of thing to build permanent Raw and SmackDown rosters. What we were originally told is that they wouldn’t be making major changes, but some changes, but this is Vince. Everything is being kept quiet and USA and FOX will be the first to know when the concept is decided.

Which stars would you like to be moved if the company does decide to do an on air draft? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

    This article from Wrestling observer is so contradictory to what has been said before. They are saying that previously they were told no shake up would happen, yet all reports since the last draft had indicated that there would probably be another draft for the FOX move as FOX want as many big names on the show as possible.

    With the first episode on FOX supposedly being aimed at getting as many current SD and RAW talent on the show as possible to make it seem a big deal, it would not be a surprise if this is where we see the rosters get another shake up.
    WWE wont want to upset USA too much seeing as they just did the NXT deal with them and obviously still have a good working relationship, plus despite FOX obviously wanting SD to be the A-Show, WWE will never move beyond the mentality that RAW is the A-Show. It would make a lot of sense though to adjust the balance somewhat seeing as WWE obviously felt the last draft did not work (why else would they create the awful wild card rule?).
