Five surprise General Managers of SmackDown we would love to see
The definition might be open to interpretation, but retro makes regular comebacks in some shape or form. The WWE is no exception, with golden oldies being reintroduced every now and then.
While wrestlers deliver with their in-ring work, an underappreciated part of the whole package are non-wrestlers. Guys like Enzo Amore, Xavier Woods and Chris Jericho are rare blends – muscles and mouths. But the Harts, Heenans and Heymans are an endangered species. With the brand extension on the horizon, the inevitable question of a General Manager for SmackDown has popped up.
The WWE seem to be building towards a sibling war, with both shows being the weapons of choice. Shane and Stephanie’s segments have been mildly entertaining and we’re not sure that putting either at the helm of each show is best for business.
The WWE’s ability to knock surprises out of the park just shines in situations like this. Shane O’Mac’s and Rollins’ returns were strokes of brilliance. A surprise General Manager of SmackDown after weeks of teasing Stephanie and Shane’s contest of one-upmanship would be tough to beat. It has to be someone who can get a pop on the first note of their theme, but play heel when needed. So which names would we love to see?
