The superstar shake-up is now in the history books. The two-night event, which took place this week saw a total of 25 superstars switch brands, with several notable faces, and two title belts also making big moves.
True to its name, the Superstar Shake-Up has thrown a cat among the pigeons, whether for better or worse, with several of Smackdown’s notable stars, like The Miz and Dean Ambrose joining Raw, while in return Smackdown received Kevin Owens and his United States Title.
While many fans are complaining that Smackdown got raided this past week and that the event itself was a bit of a hot mess- it’s time to take a look at the positives coming out of this week’s event and look at ten of the potentially great feuds it could create in the coming months.
Bray Wyatt Vs Finn Balor
Let’s get the most obvious one of the way first shall we? Bray Wyatt made his debut on Raw this week by showing up on the big screen after Finn Balor’s match with Jinder Mahal, clearly indicating that the two are headed for a program in the very near future.
Wyatt is currently tied into a feud with Randy Orton, which will likely culminate in a defeat at Payback, leaving The Eater of Worlds open to begin his feud with The Demon King. Balor, despite being due a Universal Title shot rematch, currently has no feud lined up and this will provide him with plenty to do until he finally gets his shot at Brock Lesnar’s Universal gold.
The meeting of the Demon King and The Eater of Worlds has some serious potential- both men have supernatural gimmicks and the promos between the pair could be highly entertaining. Let’s just hope Bray keeps away from the maggots and other insect-inspired projections.
