Reason why WWE moved three Superstars back to SmackDown Live

As noted earlier, Andrade, Zelina Vega and Aleister Black were moved back to SmackDown Live just a week after they were moved to Monday Night Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up.

PWInsider reports that the decision for the roster moves is, in part, because FOX wanted more Latino stars (Andrade and Vega) on SmackDown Live for the Spanish language version of the show on Fox Deportes. A WWE source reached out to independently confirm the story to us.

Additionally, the reason why Black was moved was so that he could be on the same brand with his wife. Before today’s decision, the company was already considering moving Andrade back so they could keep him together with Charlotte Flair.

WWE has been trying to keep couples together so the moves made today also ensure that every couple on the main roster stays together.
