205 live is getting a GM

That GM will announce the plans for the title now that Enzo was fired

Rockstar Spud is my pick


He's been signed by WWE. Meets the weight limit. Is a very good talker

I could also see it being Gulak. But I think gulak will be champ soon. So bad idea for both roles

Some are saying Ellsworth. I'd go for that, but don't see it happening

Others say Paige. Meh. Rather she'd be a women's GM if they go that route

Other names are being thrown about like Rey misterio. X-PAC. Scotty too hotty. Dean malenko
I say nope to all

No offense to Spud, but it'll be death to casual crowds. I know Smackdown is in Philly next week, but even with a smart crowd, does the online community love him that much? After that, it'll be a fart in church.

205 Live desperately needs star power and a GM, even if a borderline ridiculous need, can help fill that void. The solution isn't a TNA castoff.

Mark Henry and Gregory helms are rumored as well

So is Nikki Bella.

Billy Kidman

Eric bischoff

Tyson Kidd

Obviously a lot of the names are silly. But that's what the internet does

My God... there's no one of name value left to use. "General Manager Hurricane" just sounds awesome and awful at the same time.

You should feel the full fury of the Gods for ever saying "nope" to Dean Malenko on any level!

Malenko is horrible on the mic

A GM or any authority figure should be good on the mic

The more I think about it, the worse the idea is.

1. The GM shouldn't be more over than the wrestling talent, but 205 Live is void of "stars" to casual audiences, so you need someone major.

2. After watching Raw 25, there was a lot of old looking people that are constantly relied on to get a pop. I don't think there's much left to pick from that can look good for TV and not completely overshadow the division.

3. The division is hurting for talent. Enzo is gone. Neville is gone. Aries is gone. Kendrick is injured. Swann is out indefinitely, but could be back soon. Dar is injured significantly. even TJP was out for 3 months, and is now back to being a Cruiser-Jobber. They aren't adding new talent, outside of demoting Kalisto and bringing in Hideo Itami. Add depth via the Smackdown roster. Use Breezango again. Chad Gable is 205 pounds, let him dominate the division as the next Kurt Angle. DO SOMETHING WITH SOMEONE! ANYONE!

Summer rae was rumored

But they felt at 5 9 and then adding her heels she'd be taller than most of the cruiserweights

I'm not joking either

The more ridiculous the rumor, the more likely it's 100% true.

Fuck it, Dana Brooke still has a job. Put her in the spot. She's ass in the ring, but god damn she must stay employed.

What about Samir Singh? He tore his ACL. So can't wrestle/take bumps for awhile

He's a good talker. Good facial expressions. He's under the 205 Live weight limit

I still want/think it will be Rockstar Spud

But Singh would be my 2nd choice
