Vince McMahon announced on last night’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw the new commissioners for Raw and Smackdown. As the storyline goes, Vince named Stephanie McMahon the new Raw Commissioner and Shane McMahon the new Smackdown Commissioner. Each will “pick” General Managers for their brands next Monday.

Shane and Stephanie will lead next week’s 2016 WWE Draft to make picks for their brands.

While all of this is obviously storyline, this was highly debated by the scenes. Triple H and Stephanie wanted her on Raw with Shane on Smackdown. Vince originally favored it the other way around but it looks as though Hunter’s angling won out. While Smackdown is going live on a new night, the feeling is Vince will always view Raw as the superior No. 1 show.
