Among the many shifts taking place between the WWE rosters, The New Day is heading to SmackDown.

WWE announced the news of Xavier Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston moving from Raw to the Tuesday night series. 

The New Day and their "power of positivity" have become one of the most popular tag teams in WWE. They have won two Tag Team titles, including the longest term in history.

In 2015, Kenny Herzog of Rolling Stone named the trio Wrestlers of the Year.

Big E showed his excitement with the shift on his Twitter account:

Florida Man @WWEBigE

I'm mostly excited about being on Talking Smack so I can let the expletives fly.

This move continues the massive Superstar Shake-up among the WWE rosters, which has already seen Rusev and Jinder Mahal headed to SmackDown with Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt going to Raw.
