Stephanie and Shane learnt their fate tonight.

New commissioners for RAW and Smackdown finally announced

Published 1 Comments

With just over a week until the WWE Draft, we finally learnt the identity of the Commissioners for both RAW and Smackdown tonight.

In the closing segment of tonight's RAW, the Chairman of the board made his return and choice which of his children will be given the keys to which show after next week's draft.

Sibling rivalry

Each of his children took their chance to state their case for control of the new Tuesday night Smackdown.

It was obvious that the crowd were calling for Shane to take control of the new look show and he made a fairly strong claim.

Stephanie also reflected on what steps have been made for the company under her leadership and made an equally compelling argument.

After asking for a drum roll, Mr McMahon made his choice....

With Shane now set to take control of Smackdown and Stephanie set to take control of RAW, the two will now be in direct competition on a weekly basis.

This isn't the first pre- draft announcement to be made as it was also announced that next Monday on RAW, both commissioners will announce who their respective general managers will be.

While it could be a safe bet to assume that Stephanie will opt for the return of her husband Triple H, who Shane will select is however, a bigger mystery.

A lot of change?

While next Monday will finally see the answer to who will be running Smackdown and who will be running RAW, there could be another huge change that could alter two superstar's draft stock.

Following a heated confrontation tonight, Seth Rollisn will get his chance to go one on one with Dean Ambrose with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line.

The title match 24 hours before the draft is an added element to next Monday's RAW that could see the entire main event of Battleground change.
