cash it creates, and I realize, Bischoff's return angle led absolutley nowhere. I mean, wasn't he supposed to be the new RAW GM? Didn't Vince say he was still finding a GM? RAW still doesn't have a GM? Hell, he didn't even become Rated RKO's manager. I don't get it. Was this supposed to generate controversy. I don't think it helped. I can't imagine that it created much cash. I don't know.

Here's a novel idea WWE can try:
HAVE NO GENERAL MANAGER ON RAW AND JUST HAVE THE ANNOUNCERS STATE THE CARD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW.
I mean seriously, I don't see why every show (TNA included) has to have a dastardly general manager getting in everyone's business. It's really kind of a dated concept. They should just have the announcers say what the matches are, and let the audience draw their own conclusion that some manager behind the scenes came up with it.

Yeah, the heel authority figure can still play a role in today's wrestling world, but it's SO overdone that's it's lost almost all it's effectiveness.
Try a face authority figure, a neutral one (which I remember Bischoff almost became back in late 2004, before they re-turned him heel to feud with Cena), or none at all for awhile, and watch how refreshing it seems.
Also, I'd mainly want to see Backlund back if he determines title contenders via the Bob Backlund Authorized Push-Up Points System.
