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:





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?

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
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?

Maybe Teddy gets the spot on commentary. Gorilla Monsoon with the word 'playa' in his vocabulary.

If Regal takes the commentary spot, can they please, please, please redo the Booker/Cody feud with Regal/Cody?

Booker probably won't do much as a GM, which makes the spot pretty pointless and might as well just go to Teddy Long ... oh wait Booker won't be on commentary, it's a lovely move.

I would not mind Regal getting the spot eventually, but my (commentary) heart will always belong to Matt Striker. He needs to be there; his interactions with Scott Stanford on the Superstars shows I have watched have been pretty good.

I'd like for nobody to take the third commentary spot. Cole and Matthews made a good two-man duo and really didn't become unbearable until they had a third person to work with.

Hehe. Reading that in Teddy Long's voice doesn't sound too far fetched.

I loudly said "pfff you gotta be fucking kidding me" when I read the end of that text from wwe:

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.

If there's a commentary spot open, and if JBL is not climbing some mountain (and is willing), get him pronto. That man was money in the booth.

I wish that Cole would totally be removed from the Smackdown announce team ... 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.

They certainly seem to be building Eddie up as a god in the eyes of the fans. How long has it been since someone has gotten truly over with the fans all on their own, only to receive a big push from the company as a result?
