WWE has announced that Vince will reveal the "biggest acquisition in SmackDown LIVE history" tonight. Further details on who it will be have yet to be revealed.

SmackDown lost AJ Styles, The Miz, Andrade & Zelina Vega, Rey Mysterio, The Usos, Naomi, and Eric Young to Raw in night one of the Superstar Shake-up. NXT Tag Team Champions The Viking Experience (formerly known as War Raiders), 205 Live's Cedric Alexander, Lacey Evans, Ricochet, Aleister Black, EC3, and Lars Sullivan were also added to Raw.

Young Bucks to Smackdown confirmed.

But for serious, I'm thinking Lesnar or Roman. I was wondering who Vince was going to throw at Kofi to get the title off of him...

My mom and I both think it has to be Roman, especially after Smackdown lost AJ. They don’t have a lot of ready-made main event players anymore, and if the Shield is done forever and Dean is gone, I bet they’ll want Seth and Roman to be on different shows so people will “forget” Shield was even a thing until WWE decides they want people to remember.

i'm honestly surprised New Day didn't get drafted to RAW, but at the same time, sorry to those geeks, but put them next to a Reigns, a Lesnar, a Strowman, and they'll look like comedy civilians next to superstars

Come on. All their constant endless "Lesnar is the biggest and best thing WWE has ever seen", overhyping? It has to be him. I mean, all things considered, it's literally nothing for him to just change nights.

Except he’s about as hot as a wet sponge.

That draft would probably go over about as well as a wet fart in a church mass. After a big announcement like this, for it to be Lashley... underwhelming isn’t a strong enough word.

Come to think of it...Lashley with Vince McMahon's backing against Kinston and The New Day would be a pretty interesting turn of events...lol especially with the "awh man, black dudes never get ANYTHING in the WWE!, thing they were trying to talk about lol.

except it doesn't make any sense to bring him in right now. It's not like he's gonna start a feud for MITB.

It could very well be Lashley as some sort of giant "fuck you" towards the new day.

Rematch with Seth to headline MITB. I agree that it's not a good use of Brock because MITB sells itself, but I'd make the same argument about the Rumble and they always have him there for that.

at least rumble is 'road to WM' stuff, this is not building to anything except the Saudi Arabia show. I'd personally keep him off TV until the jump to FOX and then move him to smackdown for the ratings pop
