Come on. Admit it. You all thought Ric Flair was going to be named the new GM of RAW this Monday night.
Everything was set perfect for it. Vickie Guerrero quit in the previous week. The episode was three hours. The event was in Charlotte, NC.
So Vince comes out and I almost turn the channel. I mean, don't get me wrong. I love Ric Flair. I just hate predictability, and wanted to watch some of the College World Series.
But, I gave it a chance. In return, Vince rewarded me.
It is true that Monday Night RAW has been on the decline for a while now. There have been many complaints, and too many to go into in an article like this.
But Vince has chosen to listen to the public and try to make drastic changes on the spot rather than wait until his ratings fall within the competition's range.
Vince's answer to the problem? Put Donald Trump in charge. Now, for anyone who actually believes that Vince did this in real life, please stop watching wrestling.
As far as a storyline goes though, he fills the void of the person in control, and he kills his character in the process. This is a little better route than the fake death routine that didn't go over so well.
Will it work? The good news is, as I mentioned above, he has an unbelievable advantage over his competition. So, he can try things and if they don't work he can try something else.
Regardless of what happens, no one can ever say that Vince McMahon won't try anything to make his company a better product. Not all of his ideas are good, but he makes us see what will happen anyway because....he can.
