WWE Draft: These superstars should move from SmackDown to Raw
The WWE is entering a new phase as Raw and SmackDown get a new face-lift following a terrific premiere week.
As WWE looks to bring back the brand split to full effect, they would be hosting a fresh WWE Draft, starting October 11, on SmackDown.
With superstars set to switch brands, we take a look at the SmackDown superstars, who should move to Raw.
Kofi Kingston should embark upon a new journey
Kofi Kingston turned WWE Universe upside down since coming into the WWE Championship frame and winning it at WrestleMania 35.
While he was the champion for 180 days, he was squashed by Brock Lesnar, in nine seconds, on SmackDown, last week.
Furthermore, Kingston is not at the same level as Lesnar.
Thus, a move to Raw for the Universal Championship makes the most sense.
The Viper, too, should add another feather to his cap
It is no secret that Randy Orton is one of the most sound wrestlers in WWE to date.
While he has won most of the championships in WWE, it's about time he adds another one in his bag, in the form of the Universal Championship.
Also, challenging the reigning champion Seth Rollins as a heel would bring forward a massive and a mouth-watering feud.
Time to give The Bulgarian Brute a gigantic push
Rusev is one of the most underutilized wrestlers in WWE.
However, the recent transformation of his physique, followed by his epic comeback, is set to give him a massive push.
Thus, a move to Raw and challenge for the Universal Championship makes the most sense, as the contenders' scenario for the WWE Championship is more or less jam-packed on SmackDown, for now.
The Artist should help in keeping Raw fable
Just like Rusev, Shinsuke Nakamura, too, was kept underutilized for a long time, before he won the Intercontinental Championship, recently.
While he is unlikely to be in the main event picture, for now, a move to Raw would make sense, as most of the top superstars from Raw are set to move to SmackDown.
Thus, Nakamura could help in keeping Raw fable.
The Hugger might have some unfinished business on Raw
Bayley had a good time on SmackDown, following her 140-day Women's Championship reign, before losing to Charlotte Flair, last week.
Now, with her being out of the championship picture, moving back to Raw could make sense, as WWE could pit her against her best friend, Sasha Banks, for a long-awaited feud.
Or, maybe, put them together in the Women's Tag-Team Championship picture as well.
