UPDATE: With Samoa Joe likely making the move to the Raw roster, since Intercontinental champion Finn Balor has moved to Smackdown, it looks like his first feud is lined up. According to Dave Meltzer on the most recent edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio, he stated that Joe is likely to feud with Braun Strowman after moving to Raw.

The idea would make sense after the two WWE Superstars had an encounter on Smackdown Live after WrestleMania 35. Braun Strowman made a surprise appearance on Smackdown Live last week, and the two got into a brawl. You can check out that clip from last week’s Smackdown below.

WWE has yet to officially announce the switch, but Joe is the last of the bigger names that is expected to switch brands.

ORIGINAL: With the Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor moved to Smackdown as part of the Superstar Shakeup, it currently puts both midcard titles on the same brand, as WWE has yet to announce what they are doing with the United States title.

In the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that the plan is for United States Champion Samoa Joe to move to RAW. He was expected to appear on Monday’s episode of RAW (something we previously noted), but he was sick and the show had to be rewritten as a result.
