The Superstar Shakeup is done, and as the dust settled, we can see the trades that were made. Yes, while it seemed arbitrary at times, it does seem that there were “trades” involved to send superstars to RAW and Smackdown.
Sure, Kurt Angle and Shane McMahon weren't actually negotiating, but you can see how moves were made -- if they were. So why not go full hot stove with this and grade each of the moves that were made between brands? There will be a few trades you can quibble with, and you can say that not all moves were made one for one, but I found a corresponding move for each brand.
Here are the superstar trades that were made, and who I felt came out on top of each...
...World Wrestling Entertainment in 2002. The company has headquarters in Stamford.
