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.
