There have been rumors that WWE could soon be doing another Superstar Shake-Up in the weeks following SummerSlam, which takes place this Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
One of the most notable movements is that of John Cena, as, since his free agent status announcement, he is still doing SmackDown Live shows and is yet to appear on Monday Night RAW. That is expected to change following WWE's biggest party of the summer.
Another rumor that has been going round is Brock Lesnar potentially switching shows. Lesnar and Paul Heyman have promised to leave WWE if he loses the Universal Championship on Sunday, but there has been speculation he could switch to SmackDown Live instead.

If this doesn't happen, however, WWE's blue brand will lack some star power when compared to WWE's red brand with the addition of Cena, and recent reports have an unlikely superstar replacing him on the brand.
According to Busted Open Radio, via a report by four3four.com, Triple H wants to have more time on TV in late 2017 and early 2018 to build himself up for WrestleMania 34 next year, and the way WWE plans to do that is by having him appear on SmackDown.
The Game hasn't been seen on WWE TV since his loss to Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 33 earlier this year in April. Many expect him to return to RAW to start a feud with Kurt Angle, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
This could make for some very interesting booking scenarios near the end of 2017 and at the start of 2018 for SmackDown, as there are a lot of superstars on WWE's blue brand, such as AJ Styles, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Shinsuke Nakamura, who Triple H is yet to feud with that fans would love to see. This gives him the option to return as a face or heel as well.
However, because they are keeping these plans under wraps, it is unclear as of writing who The Game would feud with upon his return to WWE TV. No matter who it is though, his presence should help boost SmackDown's TV ratings heading into the company's biggest show of the year.
One thing to note though is the rumored request by Triple H to have more TV time at the end of 2017 and the start of 2018, as this very well could be an indication he plans to retire from in-ring wrestling after the show and wants to go out after one final big feud, making WrestleMania 34 his last as an active performer.
