    Congrats Ryder.

  • The Guest

    Why would an active superstar want to battle for a chance to be G.M.? Makes no sense. Just put someone in that position. Preferably someone injured so they can stay on tv.

    • Chris Savage

      because that’s what they’re gonna use this for. it’s gonna be hopefully (what i would do) as a building block for a push for an underused talent.

  • who me?

    its gonna be hornswoggle or how ever u spell that little trolls name

  • Trevor

  • DrivesDale

    I dont think I’ve heard an idea this pointless… like, ever.

  • InfiniteRTG

    I forgot that this show even existed…nor do I care.

  • Max Da Boss Patterson


  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    Is there any reason for them to have this programming or Main Event? Does anyone actually watch these? Hell I don’t even watch Smackdown anymore.

    • Damien J. Dennis

      It is part of a Kid’s block on the CW. So it is designed for kids and targeted directly at kids. It has no bearing on Raw or Smackdown. That is their reasoning, tap into the Saturday morning cartoon block.

    I hope CM Punk wins. Saturday Morning Slam needs more pipe bombs. ;)


    I hope Ryder wins so I never have to see him again on RAW or Smackdown or Main Event! His time has passed WWE needs to release him so he can go to TNA and feud with Robbie E.! Good thing I don’t watch TNA so I wouldn’t have to see that god awful feud.
