We go back to last week's Raw to see the acceptance of the challenge to come to the Wyatt Family Compound.

We go to the announcers and they talk about what they just saw.

Colin says everybody on this roster is gunning for John Cena's spot.  He wants John's spot.  Enzo wants his spot.  You want his spot.  The difference is that if they are going to take his spot and knock John off that mountain, they are going to earn it.  As for you three, you come out here week after week after week and BEAT UP JOHN CENA and use the numbers game to take him out of the equation.

Enzo says they have no backbone.

Colin says it is only a matter of time before you try to take out him and Enzo.  Instead of sitting back and waiting, they stepped up and joined the fight.

AJ says that was a real cute story.  Like he said earlier, John Cena isn't here tonight.  You know why?  Because he don't care about you.  This is his final warning.  Turn and walk away because once you step into this ring, his boys are going to drop you where you stand.

Vince McMahon is in the back and we go to commercial.

We are back and it is time for the announcement of the person who will lead Smackdown into the uncharted waters of Tuesday nights live.  Before Vince McMahon comes out, Shane McMahon shuffles his way to the ring.

Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring.

Now it is time for Vince McMahon to make his way to the ring and Vince does the Power Walk to the ring.

Vince says Shane and Stephanie have been doing a good job.  He did not think they would cooperate.  Competition is good on Raw, but he is disappointed.  It is like neither of you came from his loins.

Who is this sweet little girls who gets along with her brother and is passive aggressive.  Who are you?

Stephanie wants the people of Detroit to tell Vince she is not sweet.

Vince says that Shane is only here because of the leap off the cell at Wrestlemania.  Where is that ruthless aggression.  He says he would have expected one to stab the other in the back or slit the other's throat.

Vince wants to be convinced why they should be the commissioner of Smackdown.

Stephanie mentions the launch of the WWE Network, the biggest Wrestlemania and increased revenue.  Stephanie says that she watched Shane on Mick Foley's podcast.  He says he left because he wasn't patted on the back enough and he said he knew more than Vince.  Shane is manipulative, malicious, and maniacal.  The only villain in the ring is the wolf in sheep's clothing.

Vince wants Shane to convince him.  

Stephanie says the crowd chants for him because he kisses their butts.

Shane says he returned to WWE five months ago in this building and he was humbled for the reaction when he returned.  He should run Smackdown because he represented change.  Change is what we need and that is what he would bring to Smackdown.  He would change the way things look and he would get rid of the glass ceiling because it is choking the lives out of the business.  He says he is the only one in the business who tells Vince what is on his mind in a respectful way without kissing your ass.  Change is in the power of your hands right here.  You can make history because it is all about change and change is what is needed in the WWE.  If you still have the grapefruits, pick him because we need change in the WWE.  

Don't just take his word for it, so he does a survey and the crowd is obviously behind Shane.

Vince says he does not care what the people think.  That is not the way to run a business.

Shane says one of you has to be named the commissioner of Smackdown Live. 

Vince gets a drumroll to make the announcement.

The new Commissioner of Smackdown is Shane McMahon.

Vince says he has to curtail the celebration.  He says that he is relieving Shane of his duties on Raw.  The commissioner of the juggernaut and flagship Raw is Stephanie McMahon.

Vince says he wants them to compete . . . for real.  He wants them to compete for ratings, social media metrics, live event attendance, merchandise.  One of you might inherit the keys to the kingdom.  He does not care if they break the law, as long as you don't get caught.  Vince asks which of them will prove they will inherit the keys to the kingdom.  He says each show needs a General Manager.  Vince says each of them will name a General Manager on Raw next week or he will name one.  Vince says in the end he gets what he wants.  He says let the games begin.

Stephanie says she has had to work twice as hard for half the recognition.  He will make sure Shane knows when she buries Shane.  She says Shane will wish he was never born a McMahon or that he was never born.

Shane says that Stephanie usually hides something when she uses that venom.  It isn't intensity or anger.  Stephanie is scared.  Shane says she will be looking up to him, like she always has.

Shane says Game On.

Stephanie says there is only one game in this business and she is married to him.  Stephanie slaps Shane and then she dares Shane to slap her.

Stephanie makes sure to show how dangerous it is to walk down stairs.

We go to credits.
