i am thinking it could be the Rock, as someone else said Rock did mention some big idea forthe summer, not as a guest host but something better.

I think it would be awesome if the Rock was leading the NXTers maybe they could spin all the crap about Cena wanting the Rock into this Angle.

Who is the GM?

Is Shawn Michaels not that far-fetched an idea to no one else? Hart & HBK closure aside have had one of the largest rivalries in pro-wrestling history both in and out of the ring – if McMahon doesn't want to let go of the McMahon/Hart history, why ultimately let go of the McMahon/Hart/Michaels history to boot?

What is the announcement?

Not a clue?

Rock would be a horrible leader for NXT but he would make a great hero who came back to save the WWE character for a short run then once the angle is over go back to hollywood.

Jim Ross loves the product and the company, but hates the travel. This feeds right in to the fact that the Anonymous GM e-mailed all of his decrees tonight. I envision a live feed from JR's neck of the woods that allows him to be involved, but do so from close to home (and probably at a discount to the company.)

WWE needs a quick-witted person who doesn't make too many gaffes on live tv. Am I the only one to realize the Bret Hart mistakenly said "WWF" on live television last week and this week he's gone? JR is more than acclimated to the live and sometime spontaneous nature of the production. Vince wouldn't have to worry much about him screwing up his lines.

Jim Ross is someone whom the "PG" viewers are familiar with and the Attitude fans respect. If Bret was a god way to bridge the gap, JR is a better way to bridge it. His face is recognizable and his passion for the show is ubiquitous.

Vince has a vested interest in JR's future. Kurt Angle, Taz, Ken Anderson, Jeff Hardy, Ric Flair, Mick Foley, etc, etc, etc. Go back to the attitude days and the list could be a thread of it's own. How many times has he dropped the ball with losing good talent? JR going to TNA would damage WWE's image bigtime. They're most passionate employee basically says "Yep.... this is where the future is." Any self respecting wrestling fan is going to lend a ton more credence to what TNA is trying to do right now, and to serve JR a cake gig on a silver platter would be probably the only way to secure him from "defecting" before TNA gives him "an offer he can't refuse" Don Corleone style.

JR knows talent and sees potential. Having him involved is an indispensably perceptive opinion on talent. With WWE going crazy pushing new people, they need someone who can see five steps ahead and identify the people who should carry the brand.

It's freaking JR. Had to add that because I'm an attitude era guy.

I guess you could also make a case for him being behind the NXT angle, but I'll let someone else spin the wheel on that. I will say that as far as a face on the show to reinstate him in a dignified yet cautious manner, JR is your pointman to re-instate Brian Danielson publically and cause the least amount of waves in the Network Exec and Senate Race pools.

If it's not JR I'd be surprised. He's the perfect guy for so many reasons.
The more I ponder this the more I arrive at the conclusion that this is too perfect to ever happen. I cast a side-bet for Ted Dibiase buying the GM spot to establish his new gimmick and paint him as a coward behind all of the money.

JR as GM would be a message to me from WWE that they don't have their head completely up their behinds 24/7 and that they do occasionally come out for air

As much as I would like to see it being JR, I wouldn't bet on it. Just based off of JR's blogs before the NXT angle and Bret Hart being named GM, he's said before that he isn't going to be returning to TV anytime soon. Granted, this whole email thing could play into his statement of "not returning to TV anytime soon" but I can't see it being JR.

In my opinion, if there's one thing I've noticed when it comes to WWE and hyping up speculation and trying to hype up surprises, 9 times out of 10, they let me down. Look, no one knew NXT was going to invade that ending of Raw those couple weeks ago, and it was great! One of the more memorable endings they've had in years, because no one saw it coming, at all. Anytime there is hype about an "big announcement" it's never the same caliber of an NXT invading the end of Raw, if that makes sense.

Triple H being the GM just doesn't make much sense. He was attacked and taken out by Sheamus, and him returning as a GM just wouldn't work or make sense.

The Rock would be an extremely entertaining GM, but don't get your hopes up.

HBK? Could happen, but I remember reading that he is very happy with his time off.

Paul Heyman would be a great choice, if TNA was still on Monday nights and WWE wanted to destroy them even more.

I honestly think that it's going to end up being Michael Cole. Cole just draws heat. He's just like Vickie. The poor guy just can't get people to like him. If Cole ends up being the GM, then that could lead to JR coming back to the announce table on Raw...I'm hopeful for at least that.

But I could see this "anonymous email GM" thing going on for a couple more weeks. If King ends up questioning and getting suspicious of the emails and Cole and claiming that's not what it said, then Cole is either the GM or the NXT leader.

Completely forgot about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Definitely a great possibility. Though if NXT1 guys are connected to this new GM than I can't see Dwayne being the mastermind. Somehow just doesn't fit his image nowadays. Plus with a new movie coming up I don't see Dwayne's and the movie's publicist and the movie distributors wanting any heat for its movie or its stars.

Something tells me it may be HHH. It could be a good story, HHH being the mastermind of this whole NXT thing. Thus pitting HHH vs Vince for the control of RAW/WWE. Could be a hot story leading up to the place where it all began, Miami, Florida, at Survivor Series. Could be a good way to writing off Vince's character and thus ushering and cementing this new generation movement.

wow so many choices......

HHH..........the logical choice in my opinion. I would think the new GM was behind the attack tonight obviosuly, so it has to be someone who Vince cant fire the way he fired Brett. Which almost makes it seem like it has to be someone in the family, something that can be easily explained. They took Vince out to take over entirely. So HHH/Stephanie Mcmahon makes a lot of sense.

but theres also a lot of fun choices


The Rock...........would be a great explanation for destroying Cena every time, could explain the Rock got tired of Cena calling him out in the media

Shawn Micheals.....doesnt have to be on TV every week, they could probably set them up cameras at his house, not logical but would be great

Paul Heyman......would be the perfect mouthpiece for the group and would love to destroy Vince, dreamng but you never know....

Jim Ross..........dont think it should be him but it wouldnt bother me, whos been abused by vince more than good ol JR ?

I say we dont get it announced for awhile, next weeks announcement is just something for money in the bank PPV. And when the time is right id take 2-1 on Trips !!

Cheers man! I must've missed that update, but I do agree that these "e-mails" could continue for an indefinate amount of time. GM revealed on a PPV maybe? WWE may let us down, but I must say they try their best to push through all of the internal bureaucracy to deliver the best product and keep the employees content.

Could I see Cole? Yes. It would make sense as they were trying to pull him out of the chair and in front of the camera with Bryan, and if there was a direction with Cole with that angle then all of a sudden beginning and applying Cole to this Phantom GM gimmick would save that direction.

well everyone is leaning toward Jr, hbk, or triple h. all three good choices but i really think that THE ROCK might surprise us. cause he did say he wanted a non guest host role for the summer and him being GM wouldn't hurt his acting career maybe even improve it cause honestly how many of us actually went and seen a rock movie since get smart which he only had a minor/major role in. and Vince has the money to pay rock alot and i can see the rock saying yes to a non wrestling role that paid good. cause now that the wwe is pg it would do wonders for his pg acting career cause none of his pg movies have not done any good for his acting career and going back to his roots for the summer and going back to acting after summerslam. he would be the best pick out of anyone
i hope next weeks raw ends with michael cole getting an email say can you smell what the new GM is cooking lol
sorry for my poor grammer and not stayin on the topic completely. please dont spam me as this is my first post here thanks

I'd say either Triple H or HBK with the one who isn't GM the one who is fully responsible for the NXT 7. It would fit even better if HBK was the leader as Bryan Danielson is a former student of his, which would make HBK send NXT7 out to attack WWE for firing Daniel Bryan.
