Mick Foley was fired on Raw this week, bringing an ugly end to his creative yet acrimonious tenure as Raw General Manager in the nine months since last year’s Brand Extension Draft took hold. Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon is in the driver’s seat for the time being, but it’s unlikely she’ll leave the flagship without its first mate. So, WWE.com got to thinking: Who could potentially replace The Hardcore Legend in the GM’s seat? Here are five options.

OK, so hear us out. Throughout his career, Kurt Angle has worn a lot of hats – sometimes literal ones of the tiny cowboy variety. Among the most pertinent of them, however, was his position as SmackDown’s General Manager for a time in 2004. Granted, Mr. McMahon put that to an end when he discovered Angle was feigning the neck issues that had led him to accept the job in the first place. Now, however, Angle is returning to WWE, and – as far as we know – he has no plans to put on the straps again. Therefore, the time is more opportune than ever for The Olympic Hero to assume the position of General Manager. Not only would Angle have plenty of wisdom to impart to a locker room that has followed the world-traveled path of his career, but the former World Champion and future WWE Hall of Famer is assured to stay true (damn true) to his past work.

After 11 years away, pro wrestling legend Kurt Angle has finally returned to the WWE and is headed into the WWE Hall of Fame – and he says he didn’t expect to get the call.

With just a few weeks left until WrestleMania 33 weekend in Orlando, Kurt Angle spoke to Fox Sports about his place among the greatest wrestlers of all time, how WWE has changed since he left the company more than a decade ago, and being inducted by John Cena.

You can watch the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony on March 31st at 8:00 ET on the WWE Network. Kurt Angle will be appearing at Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland this Sunday from 1-4 p.m. ET.

HBK mentions Kurt

On preparing to face Kurt Angle:
“There has never been anybody that I got in the ring with that I felt I needed to specifically train for,” said Michaels. “There was never even a possibility that someone could have more gas in the tank than me, but Kurt was different. I confessed to myself that Kurt was that guy, and I knew that match had to live up to extremely high standards, so I made sure I prepared extra.

On Kurt Angle returning to WWE: “Kurt is a WWE guy and his best stuff was on the WWE stage,” said Michaels. “That is absolutely not to take anything away from anything he’s done in any other places, but it’s nice that he can come back and get recognized for his contributions. I’m so amazed that he could go from this gold-winning Olympian and transition so flawlessly into our line of work. Nothing was out of the ballpark for him. He could wrestle, he could be silly, he could out-wrestle guys. Kurt adapted to the world of the WWE unlike anybody with his unbelievably legitimate credentials behind him.”

When discussing American Alpha, one name who often comes up is Kurt Angle. In 2002, “Team Angle,” comprised of Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas, debuted for the SmackDown brand and became mentored under Angle. The team immediately found tag team success, as Benjamin and Haas won the WWE Tag Team Championship just a little over a month after debuting.

“It would be great to work with Kurt. He paved the way for us amateur wrestlers,” Jordan said, when asked about possibly working with Angle in the future. “Also, his mind – the way he works in ring – it’s a thing of beauty. It’s amazing.

“There are all these stories we’ve heard about Kurt Angle ­– and obviously we’ve gotten some comparisons – but it would be really nice to work hand-in-hand with him, help get our game to the next level. Obviously he has so much experience that he can put upon us. It would be great to just sit under the tree of knowledge and let him talk with us and give us some pointers.”

John Cena will have the honor of inducting Kurt Angle – his very first opponent in WWE – into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2017 Induction Ceremony on Friday, March 31, airing live on WWE Network.

Cena was a long way from becoming a 16-time World Champion on June 27, 2002 when he accepted the Olympic Gold Medalist’s open challenge, believing he had the “ruthless aggression” to defeat Angle before striking him. Though he did not earn the victory, Cena established himself as a force to be reckoned with in WWE.

Angle and Cena would remain rivals throughout the latter’s rise to Superstardom, even battling over the WWE Championship in 2005. Now, Cena will present Angle to the WWE Universe for the first time in more than a decade – and officially as a WWE Hall of Famer.

What will Cena have to say when he inducts one of his greatest rivals into sports-entertainment history? Find out during the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, Friday, March 31 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, live on the award-winning WWE Network!
