Since Raw has been on the air we have see general manger's come and go. Especially of late we have seen four GM's since 2007. Is it a curse to be the Raw GM? I think it is. There have been eight different GM's in Raw history and all have had a bad ending to them.
Vince McMahon has been a GM twice. The McMahon's together have held four different period's of being GM. Shane and Stephanie and been Co-GM together once and Vince was a Co-GM with Ric Flair.
Two of the seven different GM's have been pro wrestlers: Regal and Flair. Jonathan Coachman is the only GM to have the title Executive Assistant.
I think the GM's that have been around haven't done well.
Now who is next in line to be the Raw GM?
Stone Cold Steve Austin- There is a good chance he could be GM if he want's to be involved with anything wrestling activities.
JBL- He could be GM if he ended his wrestling career but I don't see that happening anytime soon. He would go down as the most hated GM.
Roddy Piper- I think that he need's to come back and be the GM of Raw I would pick him out of the three, and he would be a great GM. It would be interesting with Chris Jericho currently on the Raw Roster.
Who do you think should be the GM of Raw?
There seems to be some sort of a curse or jinx for the GM of Raw. Period.
