Y!: # 1 Posted on 31.7.12 2155.21 Reposted on: 31.7.19 2156.09 Look, this is clearly a spoiler (if you're not already getting texts from WWE, who seem to not mind spoilering you) so here's a giant graphic in case you accidentally clicked on this not wanting to know until Friday who Mr. McMahon announced as GM: (image removed) If you continue to read on, you have no one to blame but yourself (and possibly NBC). ... ...as the above silhouette obviously makes clear... ... it's Booker T. (wwe.com) I have no idea what storyline rationale could be put forward to have us end up with Booker T as general manager of the show, but I guess it's not the first time they've pulled one from behind the commentary table. We are confident that T can at least perform better than Mike Adamle did. I wonder if this signals an end of an era for Teddy Long - he's been with WWE since the tail end of 1998 (when he originally came on as a referee). I wonder why they're telling us now - to get ahead of the dirt sheet sites? Or does this news somehow make you more likely to tune in to Syfy on Friday?

No. Teddy's assistant GM. I wonder what this does to the announce team. They have done two non-wrestlers (sorry Josh) as an announce team on a main show, but not for a long time. Maybe Regal gets the spot? (edited by thecubsfan on 31.7.12 2248)

He needs to be there; his interactions with Scott Stanford on the Superstars shows I have watched have been pretty good. (edited by Torchslasher on 1.8.12 2022)

Cole and Matthews made a good two-man duo and really didn't become unbearable until they had a third person to work with. (edited by It's False on 1.8.12 2123)

To what end do you spoil your own surprise as soon as you reveal that there's even a surprise? The only good that will come of this is if Booker reverts to his King persona.

That man was money in the booth.

Matthews deserves a chance to be the lead guy ... coupling him with either JBL or Regal would give you a pretty solid 2 man team. a dark horse replacement? Road Dogg.
