Through the Superstar Shake-up, several superstars have been moved from Monday Night Raw to SmackDown Live and one was inserted straight into the main event scene on the WWE blue brand.
AJ Styles teamed up with Daniel Bryan for the main event of SmackDown this week against Rusev and Aiden English, but their match was interrupted by Shinsuke Nakamura and Big Cass, who attacked Styles and Bryan respectively.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, via Rajah, this is a sign of what's to come for Cass on WWE's blue brand.
Meltzer has stated that Cass' move from Raw to SmackDown will also coincide with a big push for him, much like WWE had planned last year before he suffered a torn ACL and was sidelined for eight months.
The Wrestling Observer Radio host also notes that WWE is planning on programs with both Styles and Bryan and an alliance with either The Miz or Nakamura as well, which will be an interesting sight to see.
It looks like Cass' first program on SmackDown would be against The King of Beards, so it certainly would make sense for him to team up with The Miz, and essentially initially act as an enforcer for The A-Lister before eventually turning on him and walking his own path.
Bryan and Miz are expected to feud down the line at some point, so before the eventual meeting in the ring, this would be a good filler feud to not only elevate the hype for the Bryan/Miz rivalry, but to also elevate the status of Big Cass in the main event scene.
However, for the time being, it looks like he will be aligning with Nakamura, which could open the door for him to have a WWE Championship match against Styles as well since The King of Strong Style is feuding against The Phenomenal One.
It's great to see Cass back in the ring after eight months away dealing with an ACL injury, and hopefully, he is able to capitalize more on his push this time around on WWE's blue brand.
