If Stephanie McMahon were to fire Angle, who could his replacement be?
If Stephanie McMahon were to fire Angle, who could replace him?

Last week, we heard a song that we have come to dread with time, and no, it was not sung by Justin Bieber. Instead, it was Stephanie McMahon's theme signalling her arrival, back into the mix.

She accused Angle of letting things get out of hand, and even gave him an ultimatum, to get things in order. We assume that we are going to see friction between the two authority figures in the coming weeks, eventually leading to Kurt Angle's dismissal.

Remember her angle (no pun intended) with Mick Foley? We suspect that it will be much the same with her once on-screen flame, Kurt Angle, as well.

In case Angle does decide to step away from his on-screen managerial role, who could step into his enormous boots? We list five likely contenders.

Let us know in the comments, if you agree or even disagree, with any of the names mentioned.

#5 Sting

The WCW icon would make for a really cool Authority figure

Sting is no stranger to the role of an Authority figure. He dabbled in it for a bit during his time in TNA, and as we recently reported, he's playing one in an Independent Canadian promotion, as well.

The WWE Hall of Famer may be one of the few people in sports entertainment who is just as recognised as Kurt Angle is, and therefore could be a worthy replacement for the man.

It would be interesting to see his dynamic with Seth Rollins, considering that he retired Sting, if 'The Icon' were to take the job. He's one of the few names that would not be an underwhelming replacement, if Angle did get fired.

The night after Sting made his debut, RAW drew 4.29 million viewers. These days, 3 million is considered to be a strong week! There is a lot of equity in the legendary face painted man, with or without the paint.
