What's the story?

The controversy surrounding Enzo Amore's status has been the big news all through the week. Immediately following the fact that he was released from the company, it was announced by Daniel Bryan that a 205 Live General Manager would be appointed, to address the state of the division.

Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer announced that one of the names considered for the position of 205 Live General Manager was none other than former WWE superstar Summer Rae. We thank Wrestling Inc. for the update.

In case you didn't know...

Summer Rae was a part of WWE's main roster from 2013-2017. She was involved in a variety of storylines in the division, including the infamous Lana-Rusev-Ziggler-Rae love quadrangle as well as her role as Fandango's dance partner, when she first came up.

She was released, along with Emma and Darren Young in the year 2017.

The heart of the matter

According to Dave Meltzer, there had been talk of having an authority figure on 205 Live for an extended period of time. However, the idea had never been okayed by Vince McMahon, until recently, in light of the current events.


Summer Rae was considered for the role of 205 Live General Manager. The idea was even discussed with her before she was let go. Why did the idea never materialize? Simply because she was taller than everyone else in the Cruiserweight Division.

What's next?

A new 205 Live General Manager will be crowned next week. The future of the division and the championship will be discussed. Stay tuned for live updates, as they happen.

Author's take

I don't think even Summer Rae could have saved this division. 205 Live is just not exciting to me, and as someone who watches a lot of wrestling every week, I often give this show a miss.

Enzo had made me slightly interested in the product, but without him, I'm just not excited about 205 Live.
