On tonight's episode of Monday Night RAW, the Anonymous RAW General Manager made his return after nearly a one-year absence. And after a little more than two years since his debut, his identity was finally revealed.
During the time the Anonymous RAW GM ruled Monday nights, I, like most members of the WWE Universe, was curious as to who the Anonymous RAW GM was. Could it be "Stone Cold" Steve Austin? Could it be Mick Foley? Could it be Stephanie McMahon? Or could it be John Laurinaitis?
Well, the WWE Universe finally got the answer they wanted. The answer they got was, let's just say that nobody saw it coming.
It all began when Santino Marella played Sherlock Holmes as he was determined to reveal the RAW GM's identity. And after the Jerry Lawler versus Michael Cole match, the RAW GM's identity was finally revealed and that person is none other than...
Why Hornswoggle? After all, he's the leprechaun who often makes backstage appearances taunting Chavo Guerrero and sticking his nose in the Divas' locker room. On an episode of WWE NXT, Hornswoggle was the original judge for the Rookie Divas kissing contest, only to be ordered out of the ring by Maxine (who would blame her?). Eventually, Cody Rhodes was called to replace Hornswoggle as the judge.
In my opinion, this was another failed WWE angle. From the Mr. McMahon illegitimate child storyline (that too, turned out to be Hornswoggle), the Mae Young gives birth to a hand (yikes), to Good Ol' JR getting the boot as RAW announcer by you-know-who, Michael Cole and joining Mr. McMahon's "Kiss My Butt" club.
In other words, this was the worst type of closure that the WWE has gotten into. And they failed miserably, thanks to a leprechaun.
