Football News

Last week, the WWE made history and announced SmackDown would be moving from Thursday nights to Tuesday nights and it would be broadcast out live rather than being pre-recorded.

Alongside the move, the company also revealed that each show would have a unique roster, meaning the brand extension would be coming back and the concept that goes along with it, the WWE Draft, which hasn't been since the brand split ended its nine-year run back in 2011.

Between now and the rumored draft date of July 11, the WWE Universe will be discussing which superstars should go on which show. However, some speculation has suggested Roman Reigns will be the headline superstar on Raw, while John Cena will be the other main star on SmackDown.

This still leaves several other superstars' show status up in the air. While fans discuss where they should go, some superstars have already voiced their opinions on which show they would like to be on.

Sasha Banks was recently asked about the WWE's brand extension on their YouTube channel, and she said she was leaning more towards SmackDown because that was where some of her favorite superstars competed in the past such as Eddie Guerrero, Kurt Angle, and Rey Mysterio.

She isn't the only one to side with the blue brand of the WWE, as Sami Zayn was asked about the brand extension as well and he said he would like to be competing live on the Tuesday night because he believes there’s a lot more room for growth on that show.

Whichever brand the two superstars are on, the WWE Universe will be hoping they're given championship shots as they are arguably two of the biggest fan favorites in the company today.

Many fans and critics believe Zayn is not that far away from being a main eventer in the company, especially with his experience in indies and his time in NXT. The hope will be that he is given a run with a minor title, before making the next step in his career to main eventing pay-per-views.

As for Banks, it has long been called for WWE creative to give her a run with the Women's Championship. Many thought it was coming earlier this year at WrestleMania 32, but the company decided to award the title to Charlotte instead.

With the rumors that The Nature Girl, or whoever is Women's Champion, will be competing on both Raw and SmackDown, the opportunity is still there for The Boss to become the title holder within the next couple of months.

However, her recent concussion has decreased her chances of picking up the championship anytime soon, but the hope on many fans minds are that she will be healthy enough to win the title at SummerSlam later this year.
