flair is the only person with the personal history to make all the marky marks mark. plus he's waaay too old to keep rasslin. i say make some bullshit up about flair being the head of a "consortium" of former owners/commissioners lobbying mcmahon for the gm job to keep bischoff in check. if it's stephanie i swear to christ i will first puke and then punch myself in the balls. thank you.

Remember they eluded more than once tonight to Bischoff's revealing match results. What they didn't mention (yet, possibly) is the most awful example- Giving away Mick's first title win. That would give Foley some real motivation as Linda's Smackdown GM.

Geez, you think they'd piss off the live audience like that? Besides, I'm sure they'll give the new GM some face time in the ring.
Gotta go with Dusty on this one.
Karl: If you had a neck and I had hands I would squeeze your brain which is your body right out of the top of your head which does not exist! Zorak: That's some great hair. Karl: Thanks, it's not real.
Y'know, I never thought of Piper, but, by God, it'd make sense. Admittedly, he was sometimes a rambling jack-ass towards the end of his WCW days, but if he can channel the Hot Rod of old...woo boy, that's some good TV.

I'm thinking it's gotta be someone bigger than Easy E, I mean if it's not won't it be a let down? If it's shane or steph I'll throw up and hate wwe forever. Vince wouldn't make us suffer watching them again would he.
my 5, some way out on a limb picks are:
Vince Russo: it's probably not as far fetched as you think. Vinny Mac: Vince vs. Bischoff in a ratings war that he can't lose? Dusty: WOW! it's that big guy, the son of a trucker, garbage man, plumber, carpenter...I remeber him...then nobody will care cause I can't think of anything dusty could do to stir things up. Ted Dibiase:there's always hope Ultimate Warrior:one can always dream
Okay, the Smackdown GM is equal to or greater than Eric Bischoff in coolness. Which means, here are your suspects:
Eric Bischoff: Both shows? Unlikely... Shawn Michaels: They've already blown THAT load... Bret Hart: Stroke, nope. Vince Russo: NWA, nope. Hulk Hogan: But what of the feud? No way. Paul Heyman: Nope. Tied up on RAW. Stephanie McMahon: Possible...but unlikely. Shane McMahon: Possible.
So, I'm guessing that it's somebody that nobodys mentioned yet...but when he's announced as the GM, we'll all go "OHHHH...that makes sense."

Superstar would be a good trainer for interviews. Maybe the guys that lack mic skills can learn from Billy. The GM spot would only benefit to get the old school fans (over 30) to watch again, but that would be a short lived experiment.
