3 WWE Stars SmackDown Can’t Lose in Superstar Shake-Up

3 of 4


2. Shinsuke Nakamura

After months of speculation, Shinsuke Nakamura made his long awaited debut to the main roster last week. The question though was where Nakamura would end up.

WWE had a long pattern of having all the former NXT Champions join the RAW brand after their time in NXT had ended. However, this trend was finally broken when Nakamura made his debut last week on Smackdown Live.

With everyone available to be moved this year in the Shakeup, some fans fear that WWE could do something out of the blue and moved one of the newly called up stars to a new brand. With all of this potentially happening it could be Nakamura who moves to RAW. However, this should not happen.

Many people believe that Smackdown Live could lose one or two top names off their show. This would be a huge blow as the brand does not have a ton of star power compared to RAW which has more top guys.

Shinsuke Nakamura is a polarizing star who could become the face of Smackdown Live going forward. With John Cena being gone till possibly the Fall and the brand rumored to lose multiple stars, they need to keep Nakamura.

After being on the roster for just one week so far, The King of Strong Style needs to remain on Smackdown Live going forward.
