The Superstar Shake-Up was great for Monday Night Raw because they picked up over 20 Superstars, including Jinder Mahal and Bobby Roode. Now, it’s Smackdown Live’s turn and it looks like they will be getting one of Raw’s top Superstars.
PWInsider is reporting that Jeff Hardy is backstage at the Dunkin Donuts Arena in Providence, Rhode Island. If he is moving to the blue brand then that would explain why he defeated Jinder Mahal for the U.S. title on Raw. That would also indicate that Seth Rollins is staying on Raw since there’s very little chance that they would want both the IC title and U.S. title on the same brand. Hardy is scheduled to defend the United States Championship against Randy Orton at the Backlash pay-per-view.
As noted earlier, The Bar, Finn Balor and Sasha Banks are with the Raw roster on a plane to South Africa so, unless a video package airs for them on tonight’s show, it doesn’t look like they are going to be moving to Smackdown Live.
