Things change pretty quickly in professional wrestling, even if it seems like we will always boo the guy with the wet hair who is the one we should be cheering. Wrestling is cyclical, so things move around and get shifted all the time. Favourites come and go, losers become winners, and Big Show changes character almost every month. It’s the circle of life. That’s why this will be updated as and when new guys come to the Smackdown Live roster or when talent leaves.
The WWE roster was split in the recent Draft, pitting Smackdown against Raw and effectively rebooting the idea of years gone by. It’s worked pretty well, especially now that Smackdown is broadcast live and has a genuinely fresh and exciting pool of talent to lean on.
With that in mind, let’s look at all of the wrestlers who make up Smackdown Live. The roster will be updated whenever someone debuts, or there’s a Shakeup:
