WWE Superstar Shake-Up Night 1: Every Roster Move and Call Up

aj styles moves to monday night raw superstar shake up

The first night of the WWE Superstar Shake-Up was an interesting one as SmackDown superstars moved over to RAW while we had one official NXT call up.

RAW and SmackDown Live's rosters need a bit freshening up and the Shake-Up will do that. While the effects of the changes are yet to be seen, the WWE is definitely trying to really shake things up.

Here are all the official roster changes on night one of the 2019 Superstar Shake-Up.

The Miz

The night began with The Miz appearing to attack Shane McMahon in the opening segment. The two rivals brawled on the outside before Miz got the upperhand with a chair forcing Shane to retreat. He was the first official roster move in the 2019 Superstar Shake-Up.

Andrade and Zelina Vega

Finn Balor came out on RAW to have his scheduled match when Andrade and Zelina Vega came out to inform the WWE Universe who they were. What proceeded was the best match of the night as Andrade pinned Balor clean after a Hammerlock DDT.

Cedric Alexander

The former Cruiserweight Champion was revealed to be coming to Monday Night RAW through a video package.

The Usos

Chad Gable and Bobby Roode are looking for tag team competition, and they get The Usos who defeat them the duo after a Double Splash.


The IIconics challenged Bayley and Sasha to a match, but The Boss could not be found. Thankfully, Naomi has come from SmackDown to team up with Bayley and take down The IIconics.

Rey Mysterio

The latest superstar to interrupt Elias, Rey Mysterio joins Monday Night RAW. However, his warm welcome wouldn't last long as he was taken out by Lars Sullivan after chasing Elias out of the ring.

Eric Young

On a social media graphic, the leader of Sanity was confirmed to have moved to RAW without Killian Dane or Alexander Wolfe.

Lacey Evans

After appearing on both brands for weeks, Lacey Evans revealed that she is officially on the RAW roster. She defeated Natalya to become the number one contender for Becky Lynch's RAW Women's Championship.

AJ Styles

Throughout the night, commentary was teasing a SmackDown superstar would join Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in the six-man tag match in the main event. The mystery partner turned out to be AJ Styles who would put away Bobby Lashley with the Phenomenal Forearm.


This next group of competitors appeared on Monday Night RAW but it wasn't made clear whether they were part of the brand's roster. Not even commentary could give a definitive answer. However, WWE.com confirmed these Superstars are now exclusive to Monday nights.

Ricochet and Aleister Black

The two NXT alums appeared once again on RAW to take on The Revival and another NXT call up. However, despite the lower thirds showing RAW, it wasn't clear whether Ricochet and Aleister Black are permanent members of Monday Night RAW.

War Raiders

The surprise NXT call up were the War Raiders who have a new team name: The Viking Experience. Hanson and Rowe were also renamed Ivar and Erik.

On the bright side, they did win for their team by pinning one half of the RAW Tag Team Champions.


Another NXT alum, EC3 hasn't had any momentum since being called up. He showed up on RAW to get squashed by Braun Strowman.

Lars Sullivan

The monster who went between brands last week will now call RAW home. He made his main roster debut last week to destroy Kurt Angle and then The Hardy Boyz the following night on SmackDown. He took out Rey Mysterio on night one of the Superstar Shake-Up so it looks like he's trying to take out legends.
