In a series of posts on his social media channels, Adam Pearce addressed the news from Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown that he will be the WWE RAW General Manager moving forward.

The post reads, “For the last ~4 years, I’ve been honored to lead the governance of #SmackDown. Without question, it’s one of the great blessings in my professional life, but for everything, there is a season. With great, yet bittersweet pride, I now turn her reins over to @RealNickAldis. I know that Nick will treat this shared legacy witht he same respect he’s given to our past shared honors, and I’m excited to see what path he sets the blue brand on going forward. As of me, 100% of my passions now goes to the flagship, #WWERAW. Here’s to new beginnings, renewed passion for the tasks at hand, and to gratitude for all that have crossed my blue path for the last 4 trips around the sun. See ya at the #WWEDraft, Nick! It is official.”
