Last night's RAW shed a lot more light on how the brand split will work and who will have what role. Vince McMahon revealed that his son Shane would be the commissioner of SmackDown, while his daughter Stephanie would lead RAW going into WWE's new era.
Next Monday on RAW, both commissioners will have to name a GM for their brand, or Vince will name one himself. It seems though, that SmackDown's GM may have already been named, as WWE.com posted "The 'Yes' Movement Takes Over SmackDown Live!" which would indicate Daniel Bryan will be leading the blue brand.
WWE.com has since updated the story without the major spoiler behind it.
