So we now know where the bosses will be after the draft. As we found out this week in WWE Programming, Vickie Guerrero has ended her tyranny on SmackDown...only to bring her brand of justice to the Flagship show, RAW.
Because of that decision, the Board of Directors also acted quickly by bringing back some Thuggin' and Buggin' to the SmackDown Kingdom: Teddy Long. Long departed ECW, and left the Extreme Brand in the hands of his former assistant, Tiffany.
So to recap: Vickie to RAW, Tiffany to ECW and Teddy to SmackDown.
Both RAW and SmackDown have huge caliber talent, whereas ECW has had to suffer the fallback of being a one-hour program and having a majority of the talent it once had heading to either RAW or SmackDown. So which GM will find success following the 3-Hour spectacular this Monday night?
In Vickie's defense, she did assist in providing some great storylines, not to mention her patented, "EXCUSE ME!" She could most likely continue that success on RAW, but in order for that to happen, the Edge-Vickie storyline must end...at Backlash.
As for Tiffany, we already know that there are a truckload of blonde jokes that came about after the announcement. But Tiffany did deliver some huge news when she made the Elimination Chase to Backlash Tournament. So, will the blonde bombshell be just what the Land of Extreme needs to continue its dominance on Sci-Fi?
And then there's Teddy Long. The Mac Militant found success when he took over the reigns from Kurt Angle a few years ago. But due to a heart attack, he was forced to the sidelines, and upon his return, he had to do the bidding of Vickie Guerrero. But he soon returned to the mainstream when he took over the duties of Armando Alejandro Estrada on ECW.
With his return to SmackDown, will he be able to restore the order that the show lost at the hands of La Familia? And what does the future hold for the SmackDown Kingdom, the Land of Extreme and the Flagship Show?
