WWE Draft 2017/Superstar Shake-Up: Complete List Of Raw and SmackDown Draft Picks

Vince McMahon promised to “shake things up again,” and boy, did he live up to his word. The landscape of the WWE may have changed forever (or at least until the next superstar shake-up).

But before I run down the list of all the superstars who switched brands, I’ll give us all a little background on this so-called superstar shake-up. It’s like the traditional WWE Draft, only bigger. Instead of one night of superstar swaps, we get two nights of pro wrestling switch-a-roos.

What Happened?

On last week’s Raw, Mr. McMahon made the announcement for a “superstar shake-up.” This shake-up would occur over a two-night period; starting on the April 10th episode of Monday Night Raw, and concluding on the April 11th episode of SmackDown Live.

The game is about to change. No, not Triple H. I’m talking about the current roster of Raw and SmackDown. I’m talking about some serious superstar swaps. Champions will change brands, and new rivalries will arise in the WWE Universe.

I’ll stop the yip-yap and get down to the nitty gritty. Let’s see who made the jump to what.
