WWE: AJ as GM Is Exciting, but Makes No Sense... Can She Surprise Us Again?
AJ being the new Raw GM is exciting for television reasons, while confusing from a storyline standpoint.
I've said before how heels are the best authority figures. You don't want some cookie-cutter good guy pulling strings in a show about conflict. This is a large part of why I think Teddy Long bored me to tears after being in the GM spot on Smackdown.
It was far too long for a face GM, let alone one who does the same old “holla playa” routine.
AJ provides television interest. She isn't a cookie-cutter face in the story, but she isn't a heel you despise. She is crazy and unpredictable. One scene you can love her, the next she could anger you by her actions.
Normally this many mixed emotions translates into someone in creative power tossing darts against a wall—but with AJ, it's all magic of the character.
On television, the crazy girl running the show sounds good. Based on logic, why would the chairman of the company propose a position of power to a crazy person? Especially after much of last year's story resorted back to the board of directors wanting the best person in charge and shuffling between Triple H and John Laurinaitis.
This is something I certainly feel McMahon should be on camera to address. If not on the next show then soon. Perhaps AJ drives everyone nuts, not favoring heels or faces. This forces McMahon to give an explanation of why he felt it was “good for business.”
I don't expect AJ in control to be a long term angle. I give it until September at the most.
John Laurinaitis was a long term choice. Easy to hate and was the most useful in the position of heel authority.
Your reaction when AJ was announced as GM?
AJ is entertaining, but she's entertaining while playing mind games with Daniel Bryan or CM Punk. How will she work or will she work at all playing decision maker for the rest of the roster?
Obviously, AJ as GM gives great opportunity to help sign a match involving her ex-boyfriend and Charlie Sheen. Maybe her GM power gets put on the line as a stipulation in the match.
WWE wants mainstream exposure—get AJ and Daniel Bryan in WWE character to guest star an episode of Anger Management where Charlie Sheen is casted as the counselor. Huge exposure there!
AJ is entertaining, but I don't think many are expecting this to be one of the memorable GM's of all-time.
Then again, when on NXT I thought, AJ is cute but she isn't typical WWE barbie doll. I figured she wouldn't be able to shine in the companies current model for divas.
She continues to skip around surprising and making us all dig her.
