List of WWE Superstars Who Have Permission To Appear On Both RAW And SmackDown

The Rules governing the movement of superstars between brands are strict. After the brand split in 2016, it made sure that particular WWE superstars will only be a part of a particular brand. Be it RAW or SmackDown.

Ever since the split, WWE has had full dedicated rosters for each branch who rarely cross each other unless there’s a special event like a pay per view such as Survivor Series, where brands are supposed to compete against each other or if wildcard rules come into play.

However, some superstars get a free pass to appear on other brands because their part time status or due to overall stardom. E.g. Free Agents like Brock Lesnar and John Cena. While there are others like the Usos and Roman Reigns who have become the Undisputed champions and therefore have to perform on both brands as they are champions of both brands.


Complete list of WWE Superstars who are free to show up on RAW and SmackDown


Let’s take a look at such superstars whose contracts allow them to appear on both RAW and SmackDown.

  1. Damage CTRL (Damage Control) Leader Bayley
  2. Dakota Kai and IYO Sky (WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions)
  3. The Usos (with Sami Zayn) (Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions)
  4. Roman Reigns (Undisputed WWE Universal Champion)
  5. Goldberg
  6. Brock Lesnar
  7. Logan Paul

Damage CTRL (Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai with Bayley) became the Women’s tag team champs on the latest episode of RAW when they defeated Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah and that championship being the only one for both brands, they will have to appear on both and be in action either for the titles or not.

Roman Reigns and the Bloodline have both been Undisputed champions (WWE and tag team respectively) of both brands for a record period and have to appear in both brands as their contracts say so. Sami Zayn being their associate is allowed to do so too.


Goldberg and Brock Lesnar are both part timers and show up for the big money matches from time to time and thus can be utilized on either brand to make full use of their expensive contracts.
