But the blue brand’s Commissioner Shane McMahon and newly-appointed General Manager Paige will get the chance to replace them with some of RAW’s finest.
The likes of ex-US Champion Bobby Roode, former Money in the Bank winner Baron Corbin and ex-World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler have moved to Monday nights.
Jinder Mahal also took the US title to the red brand, which means Smackdown are missing a belt.
But at least McMahon and Paige got a huge boost by signing former WWE Champion The Miz who is now set to feud with Daniel Bryan.
Here are the five RAW superstars who could join him on Tuesday nights:
Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins could move to Smackdown
Asuka’s two-and-a-half-year undefeated steak shockingly came to an end at WrestleMania 34 when Charlotte Flair made her tap out to the Figure-Eight.
That surprise loss changes everything for The Empress of Tomorrow and her direction doesn’t
However, a move to Smackdown would provide her with new opportunities to re-establish herself as the most dominant female competitor in the company.
The best way to do that would be by challenging Charlotte to a rematch at Backlash next month.
Rumours suggest the inaugural women’s Royal Rumble winner has been advertised to appear on Smackdown’s live event on June 10 in Tupelo, Mississippi.

2. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson made a name for themselves in Japan but have struggled to replicate that success in the US.
Gallows and Anderson had a hapless RAW Tag Team title reign and their reunion with AJ Styles as well as Finn Balor has led to nothing.
The duo needs to start fresh and the only way they can do it is by switching brands and reasserting their authority.
Finn Balor may leave RAW
3. Finn Balor
This is a move that could pay dividends for WWE.
Balor needs new opportunities as well as fresh opponents and his reunion with Gallows and Anderson has done nothing for him.
However, if all three of them move to Smackdown then they could rejoin forces with Styles and form one of the most dominant stables in WWE history.
Even if the Bullet Club doesn’t get put back together then The Demon could have another classic match against The Phenomenal One.
4. Big Cass
Big Cass has been out with a knee injury since August but seems set for an imminent return.
WWE seem to have faith in him but he will need some time to develop himself as a singles competitor.
Smackdown is well-known for building talent and a stint in the blue brand could do wonders for the big man.
It could also lead to a feud with one of the company’s biggest stars or even a world title shot.
Asuka has been linked with a Smackdown appearance
5. Seth Rollins
Smackdown lost the US title when Mahal moved to RAW – and The Modern Day Maharaja had it taken away by new champion Jeff Hardy.
The most reasonable thing WWE can do is to bring back the Intercontinental title to the blue brand and have Seth Rollins move to Tuesday nights.
Rollins could finally face superstars he’s never wrestled one-on-one before, such as Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura and many more.
If The Kingslayer doesn’t move to Smackdown then we should expect the likes of The Miz, Samoa Joe or Balor to win the Intercontinental title in Saudi Arabia and bring it to the blue brand.
