Former WCW and TNA world heavyweight champion Sting is set to be in WWE very soon. Some people backstage that are supposed to be insiders say that he could be an onscreen character as a General Manger. In thinking about it, that could be a good idea, but also an idea that does not work in today’s WWE. If you look at anyone in the past couple of years that has been a general manger for either Raw or Smackdown, they haven’t had much weight in making decisions.
For instance: Vickie Guerrero and Brad Maddox.
They both are supposed to be general managers for the top two flagship shows for WWE. However, they appear on television as puppets. They take orders from the “authority” and do whatever they say. With that being in mind, bringing in Sting just as a general manger to be another puppet for the McMahons is just plain stupid. I am not saying in any way, shape or form, that he should be a full-time wrestler. I do however believe that he can be used to his full potential as a part-timer.
If he does not want to be a part-timer then have him appear a couple times throughout the year. Many ways to get around this, also many ways to get the “icon” Sting on WWE programming. Either way, this is a bad idea if they bring him in as a general manger.
