On Monday Night Raw this week, the main event of the show was a 10-man tag team match of Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman and a mystery partner vs. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, The Miz, Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas.

When the main event arrived on Monday, the mystery partner was revealed to be Bobby Roode, who would also be Raw's last televised move for this year's Superstar Shake-up.

The Glorious One ended up helping his tag team partners win the epic main event match, which ended when The Miz faced The Monster Among Men's brute force in a Running Powerslam, pinning him afterward for the three-count and the victory.

Roode might have been the last superstar to have his move from SmackDown to Raw televised on the red brand show this week, but the fact he was placed in this spot is a good thing, according to a report by Wrestling Observer Radio.

According to Rajah, it was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio this week that having Roode's switch to Raw saved until the end of the show and revealed as a big surprise bodes well for the future of him on Monday nights.

They stated as well that the fact he was revealed last suggests that WWE views him as the most significant wrestler to move from Smackdown to Raw through the Superstar Shake-up this week.

This is a promising sign for The Glorious One, as, since his jump from NXT to the main roster in August last year, he has struggled to make a huge impact as he was largely one-dimensional on SmackDown. Hopefully, that changes now that he is on Raw.


For now, Roode will still likely compete for below the main event picture on WWE's red brand, but this brings a future of promising feuds with Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn. 

However, if WWE pulls the trigger and turns him heel, this could be even better for him, especially since there aren't a lot of top full-time heels on Raw at the moment.
