Baron Corbin is no longer the RAW General Manager and no replacement was named on RAW.

Tonight Smackdown Live opened up with Shane McMahon backstage with a number of the Smackdown roster and was talking about the fresh start. He would then go on to say the with this new start Paige will longer continue in her role as Smackdown General Manager. Shane stated Paige is not going anywhere but will be doing something new. The superstars present then began a “Thank You Page” chant as the show began.
