WWE Wants Big Smackdown Names on Raw Due to Low Ratings

May 5, 2019 - by James Walsh

As previously reported, WWE postponed a house show that was scheduled for Monday, May 6 in Corbin, Kentucky. The show was instead pushed back to October 17. Daniel Bryan, making his first in-ring appearance since WrestleMania 35, was set to appear. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton was also advertised. PWInsider has a report on what led to the event being shifted. 

Per the report, WWE made the decision in the last few days to send several top Smackdown stars to the May 6 edition of Monday Night Raw to help with the build-up for Money in the Bank. Additionally, the drop in ratings for Raw this week was also a factor.
