April 11th Smackdown Live Preview: Who is Left?

Here is a Smackdown Preview for the April 11th episode. With a ton of talent moving to Raw, what is next for the blue brand?

Monday was night one of the #SuperStarShakeUp and a lot of Smackdown stars made the jump to Raw. Check out the full list here.

So WHO is left on Smackdown?

  • AJ Styles
  • Baron Corbin
  • John Cena
  • Randy Orton (maybe?)
  • Aiden English (newly single)
  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Erick Rowan (Once again, alone)
  • Luke Harper
  • Mojo Rawley
  • Zack Ryder
  • Shinsuke Nakamura
  • Tye Dillinger
  • The Usos
  • American Alpha
  • The Ascension
  • Fashion Police (Fandango & Tyler Breeze)
  • Naomi
  • Becky Lynch
  • Carmella
  • Natalya

This is bound to change as some Raw Superstars make the jump to Smackdown Live.

What else is there to expect on #SDLive?

TreeHouse Of Horrors

While Bray seemingly made the jump to Raw last night, he is still challenging Randy Orton for the WWE Title in the yet-to-be-described “House of Horrors” match. The match will be contested at the Payback PPV, which is being advertised as a Raw exclusive. This could mean Bray is bringing the title to Raw or that they need to quickly wrap this feud up and send The Eater of Worlds on his way.

Tag Division Shake-up

The only tag team to leave Smackdown was inaugural tag champs Rhyno & Heath Slater. The SDLive Tag Division STILL needs some fresh blood and a new coat of paint. Look for a big name or two (possibly the Club) to jump onto the blue brand and inject some much-needed energy.

Ladies Shaking it up

Former champion Alexa Bliss and Mickie James have gone to Raw. That leaves Namoi as champ with Becky Lynch, Natalya, and Carmella hanging around. There were hints last night that Charlotte or maybe Sasha were planning a move. Charlotte coming to Smackdown would be huge while Sasha has unfinished with “best friend” Bayley on Raw.

AJ vs Nakamura?

Last night, as it was confirmed that AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura were staying on Smackdown, a lot of wrestling fans got giddy at the idea of the two matching back up.

Nakamura and AJ put on a Match of the Year contender in what ended up being both stars’ final appearance for the leading Japanese promotion. Both are considered to be the best wrestlers in the world and bringing this classic match to a wider American audience would be huge.
