WWE is expected to undergo a draft in October in preparation for SmackDown's move to Fox, and four Raw superstars have already been teased for a blue brand switch.
SmackDown will kick off their time on Fox on October 4 with a special 20th Anniversary show which will feature legends from the past and present like The Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Roman Reigns, and Charlotte Flair.
WWE set to re-draft rosters for both brands the following week on October 11 and October 14 episodes of SmackDown and Raw respectively.
While this draft date is yet to be confirmed by WWE, several photoshoots for Fox have already been leaked featuring four superstars from the red brand making the switch to the blue brand.
Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch, The Miz, and Rey Mysterio were all featured in the photoshoot for SmackDown on Fox.
- Cody to challenge Jericho for AEW Title at Full Gear
- Renee Young could host post-SmackDown analysis show
- Tommaso Ciampa hits out at Matt Riddle
Mandy Rose and Randy Orton were also featured in the photoshoot, but these two superstars are already assigned to the SmackDown roster.
WWE is planning to take the brand split more seriously when Smackdown moves to Fox, as SmackDown is expected to be an equal brand to Raw.
There isn't expected to be any Wildcard crossovers either once the move takes place since Raw will be featured on the USA Network.
Mysterio's presence on SmackDown will be huge for Fox, and it's likely a move the network pushed hard for since he can bring a huge Latino audience to the programme.
It's not surprising Fox wants The Miz too since he's one of the most versatile superstars in the WWE today with the ability to be a great face and heel on WWE TV.
It will be interesting to see if WWE decides to keep Bliss with her tag team partner Nikki Cross if she moves to the blue brand, or if they decide to split them up.
The moves above could be an indication of what to expect at next week's Clash of Champions show as well.
Lynch is expected to defend the Raw Women's Championship at the show a week today against Sasha Banks.
If The Man is moving to SmackDown in October, she therefore could end up dropping the title to The Boss at next Sunday's pay-per-view.
All plans are subject to change in WWE, but it looks like these four Raw superstars could be moving to SmackDown in the upcoming draft.News Now - Sport News
