Monday Night RAW is one of the oldest weekly episodic shows run by the WWE. Last year, the flagship show of the company celebrated its 25th anniversary, and the show has witnessed several eras in the WWE.

RAW has been home to the Attitude Era, the PG Era and also the New Era, which was started by Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon by splitting the WWE roster into two.

SmackDown started airing live on TV on Tuesdays while RAW retained its same format of airing a 3 hour show on Monday nights. Mick Foley was the General Manager of RAW in July, 2016 while Stephanie McMahon was the Commissioner of the red brand.

In this article, we will have a look at the current position of the entire RAW roster of July 2016. I have already covered the roster of SmackDown Live's current position.

Mick Foley was announced as a surprise General Manager of RAW as very few fans expected him to take up the Authority position on Monday Nights. However, Foley was soon fired from his job due to his differences with Stephanie McMahon.

The legend is still with the WWE, making appearances for the company on special occasions. Foley even guest refereed the Universal Championship match between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman at HIAC 2018.
