Cut The Bull: We Need A Permanant General Manager
And welcome to a new weekly (hopefully) series geniusly titled, "Cut The Bull"
In which I'll be tackling the tricky subjects which involve the WWE and Vincey Mac Daddy being a little bit silly in some of their decisions.
Such as not pushing John Morrison, I mean what the f....I'll spare you the rant.
In our first week, I'll be scouring through the possibilities of a permanant general manager for Monday Night Raw.
Don't get me wrong, I've loved some of the guest hosts we've had but I've loathed most. Some guests have had great chemistry with the superstars and worked the crowd well, but most have had little to none charisma, had no knowledge of the WWE and clearly didn't care about being there. It was just another chance to get photograped.
Some guest hosts I may have been a bit biased towards as I love their non-WWE work such as Seth Green and Snoopy Snoopy Doggy Dogg or whatever the hell his name is.
Anywho, lets get on with the slide show and lets see if we can figure out a new GM for Raw.
Ah, good ol' JR. Jim Ross has been a loyal servant to WWE and its easy to tell how much he loves the business and company.
I believe he was a former GM of Smackdown for a while and yes, I am aware that he's stated he wouldn't consider the job nut come on!
Who wouldn't love to see JR back on Raw every week.
I'm confident that JR would bring all his usual passion and enthusiasm to the job each week, that he brings to commentating.
You can't bring up Raw general manager without mentioning Steve Austin. He will raise the roof in any WWE arena as well as raising hell anywhere he goes.
Now I know this is also quite unlikely as Hollywood seems to have taken over Steve's priorities and who can fault him for that?
But Austin will always have a soft spot for WWE and I could see him in this role, taking no s**t from anyone.
It would give the WWE Universe good exposure to a HOF'er and absolute icon without him having to step in the ring.
An unlikely, but very entertaining choice.
This is one choice I could see coming true.
Too be honest Vince can swing both ways (easy now) in that he can work as a face (By Orton beating the hell out of him) or as a heel (turn to page: Attitude Era/Triple H's entire career) and being able to work as both is a huge advantage as a general manager.
Personally I could see him in his typical role of picking a certain superstar and pushing them to the max and constantly picking on a face superstar (Batista/Cena) but I feel we've seen this way too many teams and personally I would not like to see Vince as GM.
JUST LOOK AT THE PICTURE! HOW COULD YOU NOT WANT HER ON YOUR SCREEN EACH WEEK?
Seriously though, as much as I'd love to perv AHEM, see Steph on our screens week in week out, I don't think she'd do too well as GM, plus with a new little kid she'll be very busy for the next few months so it's highly unlikely.
See this way he could win a world title that he deserves!
Ah, Mrs Bowston.
See first line of "Stephanie McMahon"
This is my personal favourite.
Now, I know this won't happen as his main reason for retiring was his family but HBK would make a superb GM.
Imagine this, HBK as GM at first hooks the faces up with title shots and main events, but he finds it hard to keep the crowd entertained with these match ups and starts giving heels pushes, so HHH etc start complaining to Shawn and he's torn between the two. Shawn becomes obsessed with crowd pleasing and gives them what they want.
HHH at a PPV, battles extremely hard, against the odds and comes out injured but with the win, the next night HBK reluctantly makes HHH defend his title, which he loses and bam, you have a feud in which HBK doesn't need to step in the ring.
Okay, so some of those choices were a bit far fetched or a bit of a joke, but in all honestly folks, we need a change.
Guest hosts seem to ruining Raw as the show now contains more "comedy" segments than wrestling and it's destroying feud and superstar development.
My personal hopefuls for the job are Shawn Michaels or Jim Ross, but as long as there's money to be made I see Vince McMahon keeping as many "celebrities" as possible.
So my suggestion to the WWE?
