The WWE Superstar Shake-Up two-night event kicks off tonight on Monday Night Raw. With both SmackDown and Raw brands expected to have a shake-up, the entire SmackDown roster will be on hands for tonight’s show, including the newly crowned SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella:

Read WWE.com‘s preview of tonight’s show below:

One week after NXT Superstars Ember Moon, No Way Jose and The Authors of Pain rocked the foundations of Monday Night Raw, the red brand gets shaken up again in the 2018 Superstar Shake-up, when Raw Superstars will move to SmackDown LIVE and vice versa.

Will Braun Strowman’s path of destruction take him to Team Blue? Might we see SmackDown LIVE stalwarts like Shinsuke Nakamura or Becky Lynch join the red brand? Which teams will be split up, and which alliances will be re-forged? The Superstar Shake-up begins on Raw and continues the following night on SmackDown LIVE, and you won’t want to miss a moment.

Tonight will see Bayley and Sasha Banks square off in a one-on-one match:

Things have been tense between longtime friends Bayley and Sasha Banks in recent weeks, and even though they clashed in the first-ever WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal, there’s still a lot of unfinished business between them.

After The Huggable One inadvertently attacked The Boss during Banks’ match against Mandy Rose, Bayley and Sasha will battle one-on-one on Raw in Hartford, Conn. Will this bout mark the end of their friendship, or will it signal the beginning of their reconciliation?

WWE.com also looks at some possible repercussions towards Ronda Rousey following her actions against Stephanie McMahon last week:

In an impressive WrestleMania debut, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey teamed with Kurt Angle to defeat Stephanie McMahon & Triple H, doing some serious damage to the Raw Commissioner’s left arm in the process.

When Stephanie attempted to “befriend” Ronda and put the WWE “machine” behind The Baddest Woman on the Planet, Rousey saw through the façade and went to work on Stephanie’s arm once again, further damaging the injured limb.

The McMahons aren’t known for taking disrespect lightly, so what awaits Ronda when she enters Raw on Monday?
