As a Smackdown fan I'm pretty happy with these losses.
- Ambrose has his moments but I can do without him.
- Hawkins, Apollo Crews and Kalisto are no loss at all.
- I've had hope for Bray's gimmick for a long time but it just never really pans out.
- I like Alexa and Mickie but expect Smackdown will get Charlotte and another woman (maybe Emma?) which will ultimately be better for Smackdown.
- I also like Slater and Rhyno but I expect Smackdown will get 1 or maybe even 2 "bigger" tag teams. Anderson and Gallows and/or Enzo and Cass.
- The Miz is a loss but as long as Miz/Ambrose are replaced with guys of equal or better talent I think Smackdown will come out looking pretty good. I'm personally hoping for Rusev even though he's injured for a little while.

Agreed. The Miz is a big loss - hopefully he is not replace with Roman Reigns.



Life is hilariously cruel.



It ain't the six minutes... it's what happens in that six minutes.



I....declare.....BANKRUPTCY!!!!

Part of me fears this shakeup, because the card for the house show I'll be at in May is pretty damn good (Owens/Joe vs Sami/Balor, Neville-Aries-Aleister Black, Reigns vs Strowman, Bayley/Sasha vs Nia/Charlotte, etc)

Adding guys like Ambrose, Miz and Wyatt makes me happy, hoping they make the card.
For Raw itself (and for the guys) getting Crews and Kalisto is good. They can use fresh starts (Kalisto as CW probably)

I'm curious what they do with the titles. Since Bray still has his title match, I assume he won't win and take it to Raw. Can Daniel Bryan quickly make Ambrose defend it (and lose) to Corbin or such...I assume that's the road they'll go.

Don't forget that Elias Samson has drifted up to the RAW roster...which is worth it solely to reunite him with Corey Graves.

Going by who took losses on Monday, I think that New Day and Charlotte are bound for Tuesdays, and maybe Kevin Owens too? KO'd be a big get for SDL, definitely enough to replace Miz. What Smackdown really needs, I think, is one more upper midcard guy than they started with. Adding a Zayn or Cesaro-level player would help them out tremendously.

Bray makes no sense. He has a title match and you are telegraphing his loss. I am glad AJ is staying on Smackdown. I do hope Smackdown gets a bunch of people after the losses they suffered. I almost hope the Bray thing is a fake out and Finn goes to Smackdown.

This is like the equivalent of trading a bag of balls for a player to be named later.

It sure is weird timing to send a guy who's gimmick is everyone makes fun of him on commentary to the show with JBL.

That's possible but WWE sure likes to switch the secondary titles in these sort of things, as something that looks like big move but doesn't mean much.

It's hard to say this given there's about only 25 people left on SmackDown at this moment, but SmackDown's winning this. At least in the main event title scene: AJ, Nakamura, Orton, probably Owens (and addition by subtraction on Wyatt and Ambrose, who both are played out.) The volume of people aren't there, but the title matches should be great.

This looks like what I was thinking they must be thinking, too:
-Ambrose for Owens
-(eventually) Rusev/Lana for Miz/Maryse
-Alexa for Charlotte
-Either Dana or Emma for Mickie
-New Day for Wyatt (Big E/Xavier to bolster the tag ranks until DIY comes up; but they'd be smart to move them to mid-card and world title feuds once Kofi is back; you could also say Jericho for Wyatt, but I can't see moving Jericho and Owens together)
-Slater/Rhyno make up the numbers on that Wyatt trade
-Let's say Titus for Hawkins/Kalisto
-? for Crews?

How much do they value Crews, is the question. Is he a Sin Cara? Is he a Zayn? Can you possibly move Owens AND Zayn together? Cesaro feels right and is the guy who would benefit most from getting top feuds with AJ/Nakamura/Owens/Rusev/Big E, but I don't see them breaking up Cesaro/Sheamus yet.

Outcomes for this? I don't know, I assume anything that involves Raw will be bad. Taking Miz/ryse off Smackdown feels like a bad move for us, the viewers. Moving Wyatt to Raw is good but I want them to have him interact with Bo now. The women's divisions need to be combined for the benefit of the workers and the audience.

The most important takeaway: Rusev on Smackdown Live is the best possible thing to come out of all of this.

My picks for tonight:

KO
New Day
Charlotte
Emma
Dana
Gallows and Anderson
Rusev and Lana (eventually, if not announced tonight)
Jinder (if he's not in the dog house for murdering Finn...or maybe Smackdown IS the dog house)
Maybe an NXT call-up, but probably not.



Everything is awesome.

I agree with most of this, but instead of Jinder I'd go Titus and Big Show. Maybe one bigger name, I'm thinking Seth

I always thought that was a goofy net rumor! Back when Goldust was with Luna Vachon (coming out in ball gabs and whatnot) he asked to get implants to make his character more bizarre.
