The Superstar Shakeup took Raw by storm. Many fresh faces found themselves on the red brand. The likes of Baron Corbin, Mike Kanellis, Zack Ryder, and many others are in unfamiliar territory. With unfamiliar territory, though, comes opportunity, Which superstars, both old and new, could become Universal Champion?
Yes, the Lone Wolf was one of many who left Smackdown behind. Like him or not, he’s easily one of the biggest names to jump to Monday Nights (unless you consider Jinder Mahal and Bobby Roode big names). While Corbin was never able to claim the WWE Championship during his stint on Smackdown, he’s no stranger to big matches. He’s a former United States Champion and a former Mr. Money in the Bank. He’s been in four different WWE Championship matches.
Many people don’t like Corbin (I personally think he’s great), but rumor has it that Vince McMahon likes the guy. It’s not hard to see why. He understands his character, and his moveset is pretty impressive.
If it’s true that he moved to Raw to get a big push, then perhaps we could see Big Baron become Universal Champion.
