Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan are on-screen rivals as the respective general managers of Raw and SmackDown Live, but most fans know that couldn't be further from the truth.

Both men were unveiled on an episode of Monday Night Raw back in July and have been constant on WWE programming ever since.

They appear alongside one member of the McMahon family with Stephanie presiding over Foley and Shane teaming up with Bryan, both in commissioner roles.

However, the former WWE champions like to exchange barbs when they can. James Ellsworth, an enhancement talent who was squashed by Braun Strowman on Raw a few weeks ago, showed up on SmackDown Live this past week and was set to partner AJ Styles against John Cena and Dean Ambrose in the main event.

The Miz put a stop to that, but Foley posted a tongue-in-cheek blog on Facebook condemning Bryan for stealing Raw's 'talent', before signing off with some complimentary words about his work on the Cruiserweight Classic.


Dear Daniel,

I am a James Ellsworth guy. But James Ellsworth is a #Raw guy – and now YOU have messed with the wrong guy! By raiding Monday Night Raw for Superstars like James Ellsworth, you are setting a dangerous precedent, my friend. More seriously, you risk confusing the #WWEUniverse, especially the little Ellsters out there, who have been waiting for me to sign #EllmoreVsStrohman2 for an upcoming #Raw PPV. Shame on you, Daniel…shame on you!

There is, however a way out of this situation. How about if you and Mauro Ranallo come to Raw on Monday to call our #Cruiserweight matches on Raw? We’ll call it even and hope the Little Ellsters out there understand.

Ellmore Vs Strowman 2 is particularly amusing, but don't expect this to be the last of the talent trade off between the two shows. Jack Swagger also arrived to the blue brand this past Tuesday, though Foley made no mention of the Real American.
