QOTD #70 – TV Champions

Question of the day: In the history of Professional Wrestling – all promotions included (WCW, NWA, Mid-South, ECW, World Class, TNA, SMW, etc.) who do you consider the greatest all-time TV Champions? (If you are up to it, give me a top 4)

Yesterday’s QOTD: If Vince McMahon were to name a new General Manager of RAW (which at
some point, I am sure he will), who would be your first choice?

TheOriginalDonald had an interesting choice…..
“Jerry Jones”

As any Dallas Cowboys fan will tell you: sure road to mediocrity and failure. I can tell you this: Jerry Jones as RAW GM = the best scenario possible…..for TNA/Impact

“Hulk Hogan in a suit and a doo-rag”

fg76….call me crazy, but I think this one has a realistic shot at happening


**** no….didnt we do that with the computer?

Some of the more insightful responses…….

“If they have to have one, they should just do the Foley bit again, but
use someone like Edge or Punk in the role. They have to do their
entertainment bits…might as well be a GM making matches with jokes
thrown in.”

“Ernest Miller.”

IF THEY MUST have one, Foley or The Cat would be good in the role

“Jack Tunney. He’s not able to appear on WWE programming anymore, so
therefore he would never come out and cut a 10-20 minute promo, create
stupid stipulations midmatch, or do other things to generally piss off
the audience.”

“If they must find a reason to justify supporting Ric Flair, I wouldn’t
mind him as a GM if he played it seriously instead of dancing around
like a fool. But in the Jack Tunney role where he shows up to make
decisions/announcements and doesn’t have an agenda against anyone.”

If the WWE were really listening to their fans, sounds like they are over the whole heel authority commish role being a big factor (Can you imagine an NFL weekend where Roger Goodell was on the TV talking for more time than actual games were being played?)

I think Magoonie NOT Teddy Belmont summed it up nicely….

“I’m thinking nobody, no GM. Move HHH and Steph away from the authority
figure storyline. Then no authority figures. Maybe if there’s a big
decision to be made, trot Vince out to make the decision then leave
(kinda like Bret/Luger and Gorilla). Just go back to I hate you, you
hate me lets fight.”

The great referees/officials in any Combat sport work best….when they are not even noticed.
