WWE Raw: Superstar Shake-up begins as post-WrestleMania changes kick off
Last Updated: 16/04/18 3:13pm
WWE's annual Superstar Shake-up begins on Raw tonight, live on Sky Sports Arena at 1am.
The traditional post-WrestleMania roster changes begin with the red brand this evening, with several superstars expected to make the move between the company's two television shows.
Last week saw four competitors added to Raw from WWE's development system NXT, with No Way Jose, Ember Moon and the Authors of Pain tag team called up and a return for Bobby Lashley.
It is highly unlikely that any more talent will be taken from NXT but there will be moves from SmackDown to the Monday night crew, with superstars such as Becky Lynch and The Usos being heavily linked with the switch.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson could also be about to make the change, with Anderson saying it would be warmly welcomed by them.
"Right now, the Good Brothers are in dire need of a shake-up, to be honest," he said. "If we go to SmackDown, it's a whole new life for us."
Are The Revival about to be Woken?
The Bar will take a step closer to learning their opponents for the Raw tag team titles at the Greatest Royal Rumble event - live on Sky Sports Box Office on Friday April 27 (5pm start) - with another championship elimination scheduled for tonight.
Braun Strowman and Nicholas were forced to relinquish the titles they won at WrestleMania due to a "scheduling conflict" and Kurt Angle has scheduled a tournament to establish who will face Sheamus and Cesaro for them in Saudi Arabia.
The latest leg of that contest sees The Revival take on the unique partnership of Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt to advance to the next stage.
Bayley and Banks to clash
The unrest between Sasha Banks and Bayley continues to simmer in the form of a one-on-one match between the two on tonight's live episode of Raw.
Bayley appeared to be extending something of an olive branch to her long-time best friend when she turned up in her corner for a match against Mandy Rose last week.
But her attempted interference backfired when she missed a forearm strike on Rose and instead sent Banks flying, an incident which eventually led to her defeat.
Repercussions for Rousey?
Ronda Rousey took the rowdiness to new levels last week when she slapped an armbar on an already-injured Stephanie McMahon.
McMahon had been doing her best to get on Rousey's good side but the plan backfired horribly, and with painful consequences.
It is unlikely Stephanie - who is, lest we forget, the Chief Brand Officer of WWE - will simply accept Rousey's actions, and there could be retribution tonight.
