After two nights of surprises, the WWE Superstar Shakeup is complete. But which superstars gained the most out of the roster moves? Read Ahead.

The 2018 WWE Superstar Shakeup came at a seemingly very good time for the company. After sputtering through the first three months of the calendar year with the normal, bland booking which was capped off by a somewhat mediocre WrestleMania, it was clear that the roster needed some re-tooling. And the WWE responded in a big way as over the course of two nights  it was announced that a whopping 44 superstars had switched brands and suddenly RAW, SmackDown Live, and NXT all have very different landscapes.

Over the course of 48 hours, the United States and Intercontinental belts changed brands, Bobby Lashley returned to the WWE after over a decade, and a total of 11 NXT performers made the jump to the main roster. And that’s just name a few. It was a very productive five hours of post-WrestleMania television programming.

Any time a Shakeup occurs it gives a number of wrestlers new and exciting opportunities. Perhaps something that wasn’t working on one brand could get a shot of life on the other. That has worked numerous times in the past.

But who benefited the most from the 2018 Superstar Shakeup? It might be way too soon to know for sure, but these next five superstars suddenly have a real shot at making some noise with a fresh start on a new show.
