WWE Anonymous RAW GM: Happy Birthday, and Your Time Is Up
On June 21, 2010, RAW introduced, well I should say Vince McMahon introduced (was it Vince? I seem to forget, but anyway), a new general manager to Monday Night RAW. At first it was a breath of fresh air because the general manager was anonymous and s/he would send in his/her marching orders via email. This was also the time when Michael Cole officially became a "tool" (thank you, Edge).
So it's been one year today since the inception of the anonymous general manager, which is quite frankly hard to believe because it seems this stupid thing has been dragged on for a longer time than the nWo. And I say it's time to end this madness once and for all.
After about six to seven months I just wanted the manager to be revealed. I didn't care who it was, I just wanted Michael Cole and his laptop to go away. But since I have been subjected to this torture for a year now, I don't want just anyone to claim the manager spot. I want a decent person that makes this whole thing worthwhile, even if it's only a tiny bit.
So, here is my possible list of people who should claim the managerial role of Monday Night RAW.

The Chairman himself. Why not? It is a proven fact that whenever a McMahon is on camera, more people are watching.
Vince can play his usual psychotic self. He can show his support for the heels (which I have not seen done to the extent that it used to be in late 1999 and the early 2000s), or he can cheer on his moneymaker.
Whatever his role may be, having Vince McMahon on television shows that Monday Night RAW matters. Even if Vince doesn't want to appear on TV every week, he can at least appoint a real general manager. Vickie Guerrero should fill in that spot perfectly.
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H
The McMahon-Helmsley era is my personal favorite in wrestling. With Stone Cold out of action because of the famous run-down incident, Triple H, Stephanie, the rest of DX, The Rock and Mankind made RAW bigger and better.
Triple H can also take some wrestlers under his wing, like he did with Orton and Batista. Also, the McMahon-Helmsley authority can play out the fact that since Shane's gone, the WWE is theirs for the taking and they can change it to their liking—meaning a feud with Vince McMahon where superstars loyal to Vince or Cena can feud with superstars who will be on Triple H's side, like CM Punk.
Love him or hate him, Nash is a legend in this sport.
Big Kev is my personal favorite choice for the RAW GM spot because he is one of those general managers I can see getting physical in the ring. Given his history of backstage politicking, he'd be perfect for the job.
And with the way he makes his decisions, he can have some good feuds with the likes of John Cena, Rey Mysterio (he can go after Mysterio's mask again) and the other baby-faces.
Stone Cold should not be announced as the anonymous RAW general manager, instead Stone Cold should take that spot.
I say give Michael Cole the stunner, pour some beer over him, have him run the laptop down with this four-wheeler, pour some beer over the laptop and say: "The sheriff is back in town and that's the bottom line."
I loved Stone Cold as the co-general manager of RAW during the early 2000s. With him constantly appearing on TV, maybe we can get to see some feuds, like with CM Punk.
Please comment below and feel free to respond to my choices. If there's any other candidate that should be the RAW general manager, then please tell me.
