WWE Smackdown! Notes: Booker T, Bradshaw & Rene Dupree Updates

- With Booker T traded to Smackdown!, he will now be used as that brand's top heel. One of the reasons WWE went ahead with a roster shakeup is because Smackdown! became very weak on the heel side, especially after Brock Lesnar left the company. Booker T is expected to feud with all of Smackdown!'s top faces, including Eddie Guerrero, Undertaker and John Cena.

- As reported before, Bradshaw is in line for a huge push with Ron Simmons no longer with the company. In fact, WWE is already tentatively planning a Judgment Day main event of Eddie Guerrero defending against Bradshaw. By that point, it's possible that Bradshaw could be managed by Paul Heyman. If this happens, Undertaker would probably end up feuding with either Big Show, Booker T or Kurt Angle.

- Rene Dupree will most likely be repackaged into "The French Phenom" character, which is what he used in Ohio Valley Wrestling. He will probably get a low to mid level push and could feud with John Cena as already hinted at.
