Last week on RAW Stephanie McMahon announced that next week there will be a superstar shake-up. Which means that the Wrestlers will be drafted once again.
While everyone is posting their WWE Superstar Shakeup Predictions, rumors and even leaks, I am following WWE and seeing what they are hinting. Therefore I found out a recent tweet which contained WWE Superstar Shakeup 2018’s leak.

This tweet featured the editors picks for the draft.
In the meantime Daniel Bryan tweeted:

Looks like Daniel doesn’t want to leave #TeamBlue
The featured image highlighted Daniel Bryan and Braun Strowman, on their backgrounds being red and blue. Symbolizing Raw and Smackdown Live. This can be a true hint, cause WWE has always hinted the things before they pull up somethings – in order to see what people are interested in and for.
WWE’s Editors Predicted and their pick for Superstar Shakeup :
- Shinsuke Nakamura to Raw
- Finn Bálor to SmackDown LIVE
- The Riott Squad to Raw
- Braun Strowman to SmackDown LIVE
- The Bar to SmackDown LIVE
- Becky Lynch to Raw
- The Miz to SmackDown LIVE
- Daniel Bryan to Raw
- The Usos to Raw
- Bayley to SmackDown LIVE
Those were the all 10 editors choice for WWE Superstar Shakeup.
The things that matter……
1. Shinsuke Nakamura won’t be joining Smackdown
Nakamura turned heel at Wrestlemania 34 and he even attacked Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles last week at Smackdown Live. If WWE moves him to Raw, then this rivalry will end at Backlash most probably and Nakamura won’t have a title shot granted.
2. Daniel Bryan moving to RAW is good.
Amid of that, Daniel Bryan moving to Raw is a good choice. He could feud with someone like Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship – which will be incredible. He can have plenty of storylines to join with at RAW.
3. Sasha and Bayley to SD Live is a good choice.
Sasha Banks and Bayley is having a good storyline on-going. If WWE is to move Bayley to SD Live they must move Sasha Banks to Smackdown as well.
This way these superstars can come up with something great and Sasha and Bayley was featured on RAW since 2016 – this is the time for the change.
4. Riott Squad the RAW
Riott Squad to RAW is also a great choice. Once Bayley and Sasha are out, RAW needs some Women to fill their empty slots.
The Riott Squad will be a good choice for RAW.
5. The Usos vs. The Authors of Pain
This will be one of my dream matches. I always wanted these best teams to face each other.
The Authors of Pain made their debut last week at Raw after Wrestlemania and established themselves as top heels by attacking Heath Slater and Rhyno. On the other hand, The Usos lost their SD Live title at Wrestlemania to Bludgeon Brothers.
The Bludgeon brothers pinned Kofi Kingston. So let them continue their rivalry and Usos must join Raw and battle with the Authors of Pain.
6. Becky Lynch should stay at SD Live
As I mentioned early when Sasha Banks is joining SD and once Bayley’s and Sasha’s rivalry comes to an end – I would certainly love to see a match between Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch.
Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks will only happen if Becky remains at Smackdown Live and Sasha Banks moves to Raw. Or the other way round.
7. Braun Strowman to SmackDown LIVE
WWE wasted his Wrestlemania movement. This time they should use him correctly. Braun Strowman must be drafted to Smackdown Live, I would say.
If he moves to Smackdown, he could join or either confront his former Wyatt family brother. Or else he could also make a new storyline with Shane McMahon.
8. Finn Balor shouldn’t be drafted.
Finn Balor must remain the same. He must not be affected because of Superstar Shakeup. Only if Finn Balor stays around with Raw, we can see Brock Lesnar vs. Finn Balor for the Universal Championship sometime around.
I always wanted him to face The Beast in a singles match and yet WWE didn’t pull this match. In the meantime, I would also love to Jeff Hardy vs Finn Balor.
9. The Bar and The Miz to Smackdown Live
I have no thoughts on this. If Miz is about to join without his Miztourage, he should join The Bar and make something around it.
I must say that those were the tiny thoughts that I could give for the Superstar Shakeup 2018 as of now. I will update you if I get anything that’s worth mentioning.
