Andrade And Zelina Vega Move Back To WWE SmackDown Live; Two Other Moves Made (Possible Spoilers)

Shake-Up after the Shake-Up

Even though Andrade and Zelina Vega appeared on Raw last week in the Superstar Shake-Up, the pair have been moved back to SmackDown, as initially reported by Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet.

Aleister Black has also been moved to SmackDown, as noted in the same report. Ricochet, meanwhile, remains on Raw, effectively splitting up their short-lived tag team.

The moves are convenient when it comes to real-life relationships, as Vega and Black are married, while Andrade is in a relationship with SmackDown star Charlotte Flair.

Additionally, Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that FOX made the request to bring Andrade and Vega back to the show. There are plans to highlight WWE's Latin talents on Fox Deportes when SmackDown moves to the flagship network this fall, and the Shake-Up had depleted the brand of Andrade, Vega, and Rey Mysterio

To try and balance things out, WWE is sending Cesaro over to Raw. This move splits The Bar after more than two and a half years as a tag team. Together, Cesaro and Sheamus held Raw and SmackDown's Tag Team belts a combined five times.
