New WWE RAW And SmackDown Commissioners For The Brand Extension Announced

Vince McMahon appeared on tonight’s WWE RAW from Detroit and announced that Shane McMahon will be the new Commissioner of SmackDown.

Earlier in the night Vince changed the job title from the COO to the Commissioner. He also relieved Shane of his RAW duties and named Stephanie McMahon as the new RAW Commissioner.

Vince also announced that Shane and Stephanie will have to pick General Managers for their brands. Those picks will be made next Monday.

The WWE Draft takes place next Tuesday night when SmackDown goes live on the USA Network. Shane and Stephanie will lead the Draft and make picks for their brands.

    So Commissioners, you have General Managers to run the week to week operations? Interesting. Hopefully we get a nice surprise, and decent GMs.

      Nice surprise? You mean the return of HHH as GM of Raw?!!

      • Rob

        Idk, maybe. I personally don’t see them putting HHH in a postion beneath his wife. He’s still the COO on paper, so I don’t think he’ll be demoted.

          I guess so.

    Commissioner? When this isn’t the Attitude Era! ??

    • Boss

      Between NXT and now the CWC, his other responsibilities I highly doubt Triple H can be a weekly ON-AIR character. That’s why they created the Commissioner & GM position so it gives Shane & Steph a chance to MISS shows but still have a Authority figure to be ON-AIR.

      • BCorbin16 #TheBoss&LoneWolf!

        Makes more sense I guess.
