Wrestling Roundup: April 23, 2019


The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

Superstar Shakeup Continues in WWE

There have been some aftershocks in the week after the Superstar Shakeup. Cesaro has been moved to RAW without his tag team partner Sheamus. Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleistar Black have all moved over to SmackDown Live, breaking up Black’s tag team with Ricochet.

According to PWInsider, the moves were made in part to add Latino superstars to SmackDown Live. Fox plan on showcasing Latino stars on their Spanish-language channel when SmackDown makes the move to Fox in October. Vega moved alongside her client Andrade, and Black was moved as he is married to Vega. Andrade moving to SmackDown Live also allows him to stay on the same brand as girlfriend Charlotte Flair.
