The WWE brand extension is coming and there are a lot of fans that are excited and waiting to find out which superstars will be headlining each show. According to the latest WWE rumors, the top babyfaces and heels are already set for both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown.

As mentioned in a previous report, the WWE also announced that SmackDown will begin airing live on Tuesday nights starting July 19.
