Tonight's edition of Monday Night Raw saw two icons of professional wrestling return to the WWE in brand new positions: Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan are set to take up the mantles of General Manager to the Raw and SmackDown! brands, respectively.

The rumor of Daniel Bryan's involvement has been spreading in the dirt sheets for a few weeks now, but now it's official: the Yes! Man will be the sheriff of SmackDown!. Bryan had a few words to describe his return but stated that it's all a bit too surreal that he was back in the first place after his retirement in February.

As for Foley's announcement, that was a bit of a shock for the WWE Universe. Foley has been busy with his reality show, but also, the role of General Manager or even a Commissioner is nothing new to Foley. He had a similar position in the early 2000's after his first retirement and it went over really well.


Foley and Bryan have different legacies that are truly their own, but both were seen as underdogs for most of their career until given the moment to shine and eventually became two of the most over superstars of all time.

What lies ahead for tomorrow's WWE Draft? Do you think Foley and Daniel Bryan are the proper figures for these roles? Let us know in the comments below.
