Just a couple weeks into the new WWE Draft era, Smackdown General Manager Daniel Bryan will return to Raw.

WWE announced today that Daniel Bryan will appear on this Monday's episode of Raw, thanks to a special invitation from Raw General Manager Mick Foley. Even though the WWE is in the midst of a brand split, there has already been plenty of crossover, namely the feud between Raw's Brock Lesnar and Smackdown's Randy Orton.

WWE's preview offers a few more details on the situation.

“The lead-up to the anticipated SummerSlam clash between Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar pitted Raw and SmackDown Live against each other in a whole new way this past week. After The Viper invaded Monday night’s hottest show to attack The Beast, Lesnar retaliated against WWE’s Apex Predator the following night and put Team Blue on notice. Now, Raw General Manager Mick Foley has invited SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan to Monday night’s hottest show for what’s sure to be an eventful meeting. Will the competition between Team Red and Team Blue stay friendly for long?”

Monday's episode of Raw takes place from Anaheim, California. Fightful.com will provide full coverage of the show, including a live, post-show podcast.
