At the 1000th Raw who do u think will be named the new GM for both Raw and Smackdown ?

For some reason i think it might have something to do w this summers big storyline (eg. Nexus takeover , CM Punk shoot promo)

They just havent been talking about who it will be much lately so i think it will be a big surprise ...

What do u think ?

I think they may go back to 2 gms which is the way I like it. I'd like to see Foley back as the GM, but it is probably doubtful. Hopefully not Vickie Guerrero for either show. AW possibly......hopefully not Teddy Long.

Good question...

I actually don't know to be honest, which is a good thing as it will be a surprise to me.
I wish the WWE did this more often.
As long as they're not gonna swerve it like they did when they revealed Hornswoggle as the Anonomous RAW GM.

I have no idea either.. Haha.

I'm hoping it's not Teddy Long though.. I would like too see Mick Foley return as GM but I think that is very doubtful with the talk about Triple H not liking him recently.

I would say Ric Flair could be an outside shot but I'm not sure with this legal battle going on with TNA.

Nooooot a good way to start of your EWN experience.

I think this is the guy who had issues with Tommy awhile back... corebore.. He posted in the WWF E-Fed and mentioned both Bodom and Tommy

What's Bischoff's status? How about Paul Heyman, say he's given the position from his threats of suing HHH for hitting him and tie in with their SS match?

THE HEARTBREAK KID
07-17-2012, 09:29 PM
I'm not sure the PG era would allow a GM called "Fuck Bodom". Maybe F Bodom. Then the IWC could speculate what the F stood for.

jbl would be entertaining to watch as the gm of at least raw but he is off climbing mountains... or edge but I doubt he would want to come back... I really want a heel gm.. note this because I probably will get bored of a heel gm with in a couple months but I kind of miss johnny ace every week on raw maybe a new heel gm would fix that

Mr Punk
07-17-2012, 10:40 PM
My best bet will be Michael Cole. I think there was also a hint on this weeks Raw when Cole said he had applied for the position. I think it could be great to get Cole of the announcer table into a more serious role.

Loving your thought of a stable but I'd leave sandow solo. But id love a good ol fashion British stable. Regal managing Barrett and WWE add in a under utilized TNA talent like Douglas williams, Magnus (doubtful) or bring back Paul Burchill. British wrestlers have a underlining rugged toughness feel, so it would draw imo.

Since everyone doesn't want it to be Teddy Long I hope it is playa :p I wouldn't mind seeing Mick Foley as GM. But wouldn't it be cool if The Undertaker was GM, I know it won't happen but it'd be cool. I really hope it isn't Vickie maybe Bret? who knows we'll find out next week

I just said in another thread that people jump all over Cena for being the poster boy of the PG era and how he caters to children yet they give Mysterio a pass. I think it's the same thing with Mick Foley. He almost seems needy for the approval of the audience. I really used to like him but it's just gotten worse and worse over the years. I really wouldn't like having him as a GM.

Im not bashing cena but foley and cena are totally different. Foley is the GOD of hardcore, bumps and blood. Murder scene looking matches. Hes goofy cause hes CRAZY. He has a missing ear from a Vader match, which he finished to prove it.

Totally different style of wrestlers from totally different eras.

Not talking about wrestling. Foley is so far above Cena that I'd never mention the two of them together when talking about wrestling. I'm talking about milking the crowd. Foley is just as bad as Cena. He is the constant face and do gooder with the crowd these days. It's almost smarmy. He already has the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand because they love him yet he seems to almost need their approval. It just rubs me the wrong way.

I hear ya. I think foley gets the crazy uncle treatment...lol

And i don't give Rey a pass either. But i like heels. I dont want Rey or John to leave. They have their super hero purpose. But i can see people pointing out that rey is a better wrestler than john. But so was Curt Henning compared to Hulk Hogan and I consider cena as the hulk of this generation. Nothing wrong with that.

I was hoping for Ric Flair for RAW but it won't happen because of the court case. Bret Hart forSmackdown! woud be awesome too.

My fellow Seasider, William Regal would be fantastic.

It could reignite the feud with Punk and possibly usher in the era of Ambrose...but it will probably be someone mind numbingly lame like Teddy Long, as is the current style of WWE.

Paul Heymen would certainly shake things up a little too

Tommy Thunder
07-18-2012, 05:47 AM
I'm hoping for Shane and Stephanie McMahon for Raw and Smackdown respectively.

But in all likelihood we'll be disappointed by having T-Lo, Vickie, Johnny Ace (I'm all for having him as an on-screen character, but he's done his duty as a GM).

I'd be happy to see Mick Foley, Ric Flair (unlikely, but you never know), Michael Cole, William Regal, Paul Heyman or someone fresh like that taking up the role.

I have to chime in on this one, -yes- Foley and Cena cater to the crowd every chance they get. The big difference? Foley has EARNED that right. I'm not saying Cenas not one of the hardest workers in this Era of wrestling, however not only is WWE literally wrapped around almost everything he dose, but the WWE as a whole is about 20x safer than during Micks time.

Mick had quite literally destroyed both his body and mind in some of the most brutal hardcore matches out there. Many of us have seen him get his ear ripped off, his tooth come out through his nose, finish a match with a completely dislocated shoulder, and more injuries than any living human should be forced to endure. In my eyes, he earned as many cheap pops as he wants, with his blood.

Tommy Thunder
07-18-2012, 07:31 AM
How about Cole and Booker?

Cole is an absolute yes for me. ANYTHING to get him away from the commentary table (I know he's got better since he's toned down his heel persona, but I still think he could be better utilized as a manager or a GM).

Booker though, I'd rather see him wrestling more. I can't see him as a GM.

HeelTurn
07-18-2012, 07:40 AM
I would love to see Stephanie back on my TV.

But 2 legends would be great, Flair for SD (so they can edit anything they don't want from him) and Foley for Raw.

*Glares at Wade*

Those tits aren't big enough for the both of us Wade...

*Takes a second look at the picture*

Oh yeah... They are! ;)

On topic I have a feeling that Paul and Brock will convince Triple H to add a stipulation to their match at Summerslam that, if Brock wins then Paul becomes GM or something, and if Triple H wins then Paul and Brock will drop their lawsuits. Brock will then go on to win the match and Paul will have the role of GM.

I like the idea of Cole for Raw and Booker T for Smackdown. I can picture it possibly ending up so Cole and Booker think that their show's better than the others, than a 6-8 man elimination tag match at Summerslam. (Even though this kind of happened at WM with Johnny and Teddy Long, I would still enjoy it.) This would be a great time to put over mid carders:
Example Teams:
Cole:
Damien Sandow
Cody Rhodes
Titus O'Neil
Darren Young

Booker:
Sin Cara
Tyson Kidd
Christian
Zack Ryder (possibly Ryback).

I see that people's thinking varies here. The end result is that it's unclear and we don't know. I do know this. When it happens we will have A.) tons claiming it was so predictable; and B.) lots of unhappy people that will be talking about how the chosen GM(s) is/are what makes WWE suck.

If it's heyman, he will either wind up Triple H enough to get the GM spot in return for Lesnar's match or he will proceed with his "personal lawsuit" against triple h unless he's made GM of Raw, something stupid like that. I am right in thinking that in return for a match against Triple H, Lesnar has to drop his lawsuits, yes?

07-19-2012, 10:20 AM
william regal can play both face and heel maybe have regal as his sinister masked evil self on smackdown and his face self on raw or have if dean ambrose got injured have him as his secret apprentice i don't care as long as the survivor series matches are being brought back even john cena can be in one of those on two conditions don't have him ever as the sole survivor and don't have him take out more than 1 guy in the match

Stihltygre
07-19-2012, 01:00 PM
All the Hate for Teddy Long, i actually like him as Smackdown GM, because as a rule he stays out of the story lines and just moves the story along... Raw tends to have a GM that has his fingers in the pie, usually a heel... so my choice would be Teddy for smackdown, and Regal for Raw... Cole is too over the top, and Flair is too unrelaible at this point.

07-19-2012, 01:53 PM
