SUPERSTAR SHAKEUP KICKS OFF TONIGHT IN CT, RAW TOURING SOUTH AFRICA THIS WEEK, RUSEV, BOOKER AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2018-04-16 10:41:00

Add WWE Hall of Famer Booker T to the list of those heading to Saudi Arabia for the Greatest Royal Rumble on 4/27.

WWE will kick off the Superstar Shakeup on tonight's Monday Night Raw broadcast from Hartford, CT.  Most of, if not all, of the Smackdown roster is scheduled to be at tonight's taping.

For those who have asked about Rusev, he is in CT for tonight's Raw taping.

Following Raw, WWE Ride Along on the WWE Network will feature The New Day as well as Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin.

The Superstar Shakeup will continue tomorrow at the Smackdown taping in Providence, Rhode Island.   Given that the Raw crew has a tour of South Africa this week, not sure how many of the Raw roster will be staying for the Smackdown taping.   

205 Live from Providence on the WWE Network will feature Lince Dorado and Gran Metallik vs. Hideo Itami and Akira Tozawa in a Tornado Tag Team match.

WWE NXT this Wednesday features Johnny Gargano's return to Full Sail and Killian Dain vs. Lars Sullivan in a No DQ match.

The Raw brand will tour South Africa this week with dates on Wednesday 4/18 and Thursday 4/19 in Capetown, Friday 4/20 in Preotoria and Saturday 4/21 in Johannesburg.

WWE NXT has live events this weekend on 4/19 in Washingon, DC, 4/20 in Bethlehem, PA and 4/21 in Bel Air, MD.
