Big Cass in Line for Major Push on Smackdown; Potential Storylines for Samoa Joe
— According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Big Cass’ move to Raw will also coincide with a big push for him, much like WWE had planned last year before injury took him out. Meltzer added that WWE is planning on programs with both AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan and an alliance with either The Miz or Shinsuke Nakamura was also speculated.
— One of the biggest beneficiares of the Superstar Shake-Up was Samoa Joe, whose movement was a surprise. While it means that his match with Roman Reigns at Backlash is likely a one-match feud, there are a bunch of new programs for him on Smackdown including against Styles, Bryan, Randy Orton and others.
