The #SuperstarShakeUp is really confusing to be honest it hasn’t been explained by WWE, but from what I can gather it’s a trade system? And with all the trades so far Smackdown has essentially lost all of their big hitters minus AJ and they’ve lost the core to a good roster. WWE really need to think through Tuesday’s Smackdown Live, maybe bring Sasha, Charlotte, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens over to the blue team? Or even reunite The Club and push The Club vs The Shield.
