WWE Brand Extension Roster Predictions

On July 18, 2016 we will see the return of the brand split. I am not a fan of the brand but I will be optimistic that this will be a success as they have a talented roster that isn’t always showcased as such. A few things I’d like to see are:

  • The WWE World Heavyweight Champion, the WWE Tag Team Champions and the WWE Women’s Champion compete on both shows
  • The United States Champion will be exclusive to RAW
  • The Intercontinental Champion will be exclusive to Smackdown
  • Mr. Money in the Bank can appear on both shows
  • WWE Network Specials/PPVs showcase talent from both shows

 

Here are the rosters I see with current main roster talent.

  • THE ASCENSION: KONNOR & VIKTOR
  • THE VAUDEVILLAINS: AIDEN ENGLISH & SIMON GOTCH
  • AJ STYLES
  • BIG SHOW
  • BO DALLAS
  • CESARO
  • CURTIS AXEL
  • DARREN YOUNG
  • DOLPH ZIGGLER
  • THE SHINING STARS: EPICO & PRIMO
  • FANDANGO & TYLER BREEZE 
  • JEY & JIMMY USO
  • JOHN CENA
  • THE LUCHA DRAGONS: KALISTO & SIN CARA
  • KEVIN OWENS
  • THE MIZ & MARYSE
  • NAOMI
  • NATALYA
  • NIKKI BELLA
  • NEVILLE
  • RANDY ORTON
  • SASHA BANKS
  • SHEAMUS
  • SUMMER RAE
  • TAMINA
  • TYSON KIDD

 

With a glance at these rosters it is apparent that Smackdown looks to be the pure wrestling show with new talent getting an opportunity to carry their own brand.RAW will be more of the sports entertainment show with more segments featuring charismatic superstars. With RAW being 3 hours, they will need guys (Rollins, Zayn, Ambrose, Jericho, Del Rio, Crews) who can put on longer, competitive matches and an expanded roster. This is where we can guess which NXT superstars will be drafted:

  • FINN BALOR
  • SAMOA JOE
  • AMERICAN ALPHA: JASON JORDAN & CHAD GABLE
  • SHINSUKE NAKAMURA
  • BAYLEY

 

I’ll be tuning in to see which superstars go where and seeing new talent from NXT is likely to ignite tremendous excitement among fans.
