Thought of the Day: Dusty Rhodes Is The Best GM Ever

This is one of the reasons why NXT is possibly the best wrestling show today.Dusty Rhodes is the GM of NXT and he’s been on the show maybe three times.  He makes matches but he doesn’t do so on screen.  What might happen is two guys will have an altercation in the back and then when they have the match, Regal might say something like “this match was set up by NXT GM Dusty Rhodes.”  No TV time wasted, no theme songs being pounded into our heads, no holding the hand of the viewers, just matches being made when they make sense.


Why can’t Raw or Smackdown get this?

    Because Raw’s got three hours to fill. Hopefully not for too much longer.

    What was their excuse when Teddy and Ace and every other GM ever did it when the shows were just two hours?

    To prevent having to give air time to the midcard
