WWE is moving some of their Superstars around. Dolph Ziggler is going to the Raw brand from Friday Night SmackDown, but he’s not coming alone.
Ringside News has learned that Dolph Ziggler isn’t the only SmackDown Superstar headed to Raw. Robert Roode is set to go with him.
Robert Roode has been in Canada and unable to make the television tapings. The travel ban between countries due to COVID-19 stopped that travel from happening. Now there is a loophole for professional athletes which they will apparently utilize. It is not clear how soon Roode will be back.
Additionally, it was told to us that “all of the moves” were being discussed “a few weeks ago.” This was supposed to happen, even before Paul Heyman’s firing. “Now it got put into place.”
The reason they are going with on television is that these are trades as part of the AJ Styles move to SmackDown. “Future considerations” was the verbiage they used on television. It was noted to us that this is the reason for those moves behind the scenes as well.
