WWE wants to shake things up, therefore Mandy Rose was traded to RAW. Also, Miro signing with AEW was something the promotion was working on for months.
Mandy Rose Traded To RAW
WWE made a change over the past few days, sending Mandy Rose from SmackDown to RAW. The Miz first broke the new on Talking Smack and WWE confirmed it the next day.
The move is being called a trade by WWE. As of now, there is no word on who will be sent to SmackDown or when he or she might debut.
After hearing the news, Rose was not happy, while her storyline boyfriend Otis tried to stay positive.

For now, there is no reason why WWE decided to switch Rose to the RAW brand. She recently defeated her former best friend Sonya Deville at SummerSlam, in a Loser Leaves WWE Match.
With Rose and Otis on separate brands, it might allow both to get a bigger push. Otis has the Money in the Bank briefcase and Rose is very popular with the fans.
At WrestleMania 36, Otis finally secured a kiss from Mandy and they became an item. The story was picked up by several major media outlets and considered one of the highlights of WrestleMania.
Based on how the trade was first mentioned, it seems like Otis and The Miz are not done. As for Rose, we could see as early as Monday what WWE has planned.
When AEW Decided To Sign Miro
When Miro, known as Rusev in WWE, appeared on AEW Dynamite, fans were taken back. They were glad to see him, but seemed surprised in how he debuted.
He was revealed to be the best man for Kip Sabian and his future wife, Penelope Ford. We will have to see how long that pairing lasts, as AEW could have major plans for Miro.
During his debut, Miro cut a promo where he took aim at WWE. While not mentioning the company’s name, he spoke about the “brass ring,” which is a line WWE likes to use.
During the Saturday Night Special, Chris Jericho addressed Miro’s debut. He noted how AEW had their sights on Miro once he was released by WWE back in April.
At the time of his release, Miro was negotiating a new deal with WWE. Neither side could come to an agreement, but Lana re-signed with WWE.
“I think it’s great to have him,” said Jericho. “We had discussed having Miro come in a few months earlier when he was released.”
“The only thing all of us were thinking was, ‘we just have to think of a spot for him.’ We need to find a place where you’re not just going to bring him in and have him hanging around.”
“I think it’s perfect, “The Best Man” thing, it’s not just a one-shot deal. It’s a gimmick.”
“He’s “The Best Man.” He’s the best man at everything it’ll almost be like a Mr. Perfect thing.”
In WWE, Miro might not have clicked with fans right away. Although, the Rusev Day gimmick got their attention and he quickly became a fan favorite.
Now, Miro is The Best Man and we will have to wait and see where he lands after the wedding between Sabian and Ford.
