There are a few noteworthy things about this list, which was provided by For starters, United States Champion Samoa Joe was not included on the list despite reports that he was supposed to appear on Monday Night Raw this week but had to be pulled from the show due to illness. In all likelihood, the WWE will have him appear on Raw once he's better to avoid having two midcard titles on SmackDown Live.

This year's Shake-up also brings an end to both the Sanity and Riott Squad factions with Eric Young going to Raw and Live Morgan heading to SmackDown. Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe both lamented over the end of their faction, which had seen very little television time despite winning the NXT Tag Team Championships during their time in developmental.

A few more names missing from the list are Nikki Cross and Heavy Machinery. The three were all called up at the same time at the start of the year along with Evans, EC3 and Sullivan, yet did not appear on either show. Like the other recent call-ups, they were treated as free agents up through this week's Shake-up, appearing on both shows in the past few months.

Speaking of Sullivan, initially had him listed as a member of the Raw roster as of Tuesday morning. That obviously changed when he appeared on SmackDown Live and attacked R-Truth.
