It was on this week's edition of RAW that United States Champion Jinder Mahal was revealed as one of the Superstars who've been drafted from SmackDown to RAW. After shoulder surgery cost him nine months, the 40-year old made his return to action last week.
The A-Lister could do the same thing for the United States Championship if given the opportunity, so it would make sense to move Jinder Mahal and his belt to Raw while sending The Architect and the IC title to SmackDown. The show was creating compelling storylines, utilizing lesser used talent in meaningful segments, giving objective to Superstars across the card and making the show a highlight of the week in WWE programming.
The key to the Superstar Shakeup is using the injection of new talent to tell meaningful stories.
Bobby Roode: A necessary change for Roode to get off of Tuesday nights. The last time Mahal was on Raw, he was just getting into his returning run.
Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn: The explanation of Stephanie McMahon overruling Angle's decision from last week was logical, but if she was such a fan of Owens & Zayn. then why didn't she hire them immediately when they were fired from her brother's show? Per request of Daniel Bryan, The Miz is being sent to SmackDown, while the Miztourage stays on Raw.
The loss of Breezango and their hysterical Fashion Police segments is a huge blow to SmackDown, but Tyler Breeze and Fandango showed up on Raw Monday and deservedly wrote up Sheamus and Cesaro for their bad camouflage jackets.
All of those major appearances may have given the WWE reason to avoid bringing yet another star back in what could have been a crowded show already. Both shows start at 8pm eastern/7pm central. When Dolph Ziggler showed up halfway through the show, I can't say I was all that interested, especially when he's sporting the same gimmick that's failed to get off the ground over on SmackDown. Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, Zack Ryder, Chad Gable, and The Ascension all jumped to RAW without actually appearing on the show. Both Owens and Zayn are regarded as the two best workers in WWE and they can work as singles - even be heels to Roman Reigns if he wins the Universal title - or focus on capturing the Raw tag team titles. It's a fun match, but what's clear is that SmackDown Live has trimmed a lot of its fat.
I also believe that there is so much more that you can do creatively with the 3 members of The Shield on RAW.

I wouldn't believe every politician who said he was leaving office to spend more time with his children, but I believe Mr. Ryan's allies insist the party's top fundraiser and champion of a crisp GOP message remains in full force.
