Heavily Rumoured SmackDown – Raw Trade Confirmed By WWE

Two recently rumoured roster trades were confirmed by WWE on Raw last night with the appearance of a SmackDown superstar.

A number of roster moves have been confirmed recently by WWE.

Most prominently, Mustafa Ali has quietly been moved to the Raw brand and AJ Styles has moved to SmackDown and won the Intercontinental Title tournament with significantly more fanfare.

Last night on Raw, two recently rumoured trades were confirmed as Dolph Ziggler showed up and announced that he and his absent partner Bobby Roode had moved to Raw as the counterweights only Styles’ move to the blue brand.

Ziggler has spent the last few months on SmackDown engaged in a fun feud with Otis over the affections of Mandy Rose. He immediately challenged WWE Champion Drew McIntyre to a title match at WWE Extreme Rules. His former tag team partner accepted.

Roode meanwhile has been off screen since March due to travel restrictions put in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Roode resides in Canada so has been unable to enter the USA. With restrictions around the world beginning to ease, it should not be long before he debuts for his new brand.
