We have ourselves a good old fashioned brand swap this weekend.
As announced on Talking Smack this weekend, Mandy Rose is moving to Raw from her previous SmackDown home.
The move has been framed as a ploy by The Miz to rile Otis by pulling strings to have the trade made.
In reality, it’s a good move all round. The money in the Mandy/Otis feud was in them getting together. The continued relationship was a millstone around their necks. It can always be revisited down the line if and when required.
The improving Rose will get a fresh set of opponents on Raw as she continues to make a name for herself in the women’s division.
Rose herself posted a response to the move on Twitter, very much in character and continuing the story of this being a surprise move.
