This week’s WWE Smackdown Live kicked off with big news. Shane McMahon announced that Daniel Bryan has tendered his resignation as GM because he is now an active Superstar.
McMahon then announced that Paige would be the new Smackdown General Manager. Apparently, this decision was made recently because Paige was not aware of her new role as of Monday night.
Paige said that Shane McMahon was waiting for him after her retirement speech. Her first act as new Smackdown Live GM was to announce Daniel Bryan’s first TV match in 3 years. His opponent was AJ Styles.
