WWE: Booker T as the New SmackDown GM Is a Good Decision
On the latest episode of SmackDown, Vince McMahon revealed the new general manager—none other than six-time world champion Booker T.
All things considered, this is a great move by the WWE. Although his commentary had mixed reviews, Booker has been involved in the business for nearly 25 years, and is one of the most decorated champions in pro wrestling history.
He knows how to go out there and give his best.
His move from wrestler to commentator was not a transition that was very popular. His stumbling on words, Harlem Heat-esque mannerisms and difficulty of knowing his cues made the majority of his reviews negative.
However, just like his wrestling skills, he stuck with it, and continued to hone his craft. His "You Gotta Love It," "Whoa," "Aw Shuckey Duckey, Quack Quack" and "With the Greatest of Ease" catchphrases were something that many SmackDown viewers not only eventually accepted, but started to embrace.
His move to general manager doesn't seem to be as rough as his move to commentary. He looked like a veteran on SmackDown, even on his first day on the job.
His interactions with Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus, Eve and Teddy Long were just what the show needed to break the monotony of what we've seen over the past few weeks—especially concerning the World Heavyweight Title picture.
As his in-ring wrestling career is coming to a definite end, it seems like Booker T has found his niche in becoming SmackDown's new GM.
