Paige is now General Manager of SmackDown Live

The land of opportunity gives back.

SmackDown Live commissioner Shane McMahon opened this week’s show with some big breaking news.

One night after Paige gave a heart wrenching speech to announce her retirement from in-ring competition, the former WWE Divas champion was appointed SmackDown’s new General Manager, taking the spot formerly held by Daniel Bryan, who will resume his work as a full time wrestler.

Paige’s first order of business was to book Bryan vs. AJ Styles for later in the night.

She’s doing a great job already.
