Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black Moved to WWE Smackdown

Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?



Andrade Cien Almas Zelina Vega WWE Superstar Shake-Up

Three talents get shaken up once more: Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black head to WWE Smackdown in a WWE Superstar Shake-Up reversal.

In a surprising move, WWE has changed the profiles for Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black to the blue brand, WWE Smackdown. Black was assigned to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up, and Andrade and Vega were moved there in a spot that saw Andrade get a clean victory over Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.

The internet, of course, immediately jumps to conclusions about the Latin representation of Smackdown (Rey Mysterio was also moved to Raw), as well as the relationship between Charlotte Flair and Andrade. Aleister and Zelina are married, and WWE has been trying to keep couples together. Do you think Charlotte Flair is responsible for this move?

Greg DeMarco’s Take on this WWE Superstar Shake-Up Reversal

I stand in the middle! I know, I don’t do that often. But Andrade to Raw made a ton of sense, as he can be a workhorse there and eat up TV time by putting on great matches. Smackdown is loaded (even more so), and I really hope 3 people move back to Raw in the process. As for why? This can definitely be a case of “LOLCHARLOTTEWINS” as she and Andrade are of course an item. If so, that shows how strong of a pairing Zelina and Andrade are if she went with him, and since Zelina and Aleister are married, Black goes as well. I could see the four of them traveling together, honestly.

Dolph Ziggler Reveals He Was Added To The 2019 Royal Rumble The Night Before

How did Dolph Ziggler end up in the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble?



Dolph Ziggler 2

When, and how, was Dolph Ziggler added to the 2019 Royal Rumble match?

In a sit-down interview with Chris Van Vliet (seen above), Dolph Ziggler reveals that he wasn’t booked for the WWE Royal Rumble until the night before, and he earned a payday for his comedy show and the Royal Rumble appearance.

“Oh my God. That’s a great story. Can I tell this story? When I talked to you, I was not booked for the Royal Rumble and I have no reason to lie to anybody or be like ‘Hey listen, I don’t know what the deal is’. I was just on hiatus and I got a call to be there. And if I wasn’t in town for a booking for a comedy show that night I would not have even been in Phoenix. I got a call the night before saying ‘Hey, you gotta get here.’ … I was one of the last people in the ring that night and my comedy show three blocks away had to start an hour late because I was running over with sweat and my bags. I almost went in my gear but I was like I’m going to have to shower.”

Dolph Ziggler hasn’t appeared for WWE since the Royal Rumble, and in the interview above he maintains that he on an extended vacation from the company. You might remember that Ziggler made first contact with Nia Jax during the Rumble, nailing her with a Superkick.
