• Real Reason Behind Andrade, Zelina Vega & Aleister Black Being Moved To SmackDown
As we noted earlier, WWE moved Andrade, Zelina Vega & Aleister Black to SmackDown this week (after they were moved to RAW last week).
According to PWInsider, FOX officials requested WWE to move Andrade & Zelina to SmackDown because SmackDown lacked Latino stars after the Superstar Shake-Up and FOX is planning to showcase WWE’s latino stars on their Spanish language station, FOX Deportes, once SmackDown moves to their Network in October.
With that being said, WWE officials also decided to move Aleister Black to SmackDown because Black is married to Zelina and WWE officials are trying to keep married (or engaged) couples on the same brand.
