Superstar Shake-Up: Byron Saxton to SmackDown, David Otunga to Raw

WWE waited until after Monday Night Raw went off the air this week to reveal as much but the Superstar Shake-Up doesn’t only affect wrestlers. Indeed, it turns out Byron Saxton will be headed to SmackDown Live while David Otunga will be coming to Raw.

Saxton’s reaction, from the above video:

"Wow. I'm kind of shocked right now. Obviously we saw a lot of changes on Raw and I guess I'm one of those changes. You know what? I'm going to miss Michael, I'm going to miss Corey... well, maybe not so much Corey. But you know what? I'm going to be positive about this. This is a great opportunity. Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan always say SmackDown Live is the land of opportunity, I'm ready to seize it. I guess I'll wear my blue now. Thanks!"

That brings the total of Raw talent switching to SmackDown to 12. See the full list here.
