Well, it is her house now. A lot of things happen every year on the Monday Night Raw and SmackDown live after WrestleMania. This time around, one of the biggest changes was the signing of Paige as the new General Manager of SmackDown Live. The surprise was even bigger as Paige had announced her retirement as an in-ring performer due to a series of injuries the night before. It was a very odd choice and a lot of people were wondering why Paige was the pick. Now we might have a better answer to that question.
It was a heck of a surprise.
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise in the world and that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. Paige has been fine in the role so far and is far better than bringing in someone for the traditional role. I don’t need the General Manager to be a mostly retired wrestler who is eventually drawn back into a feud with the other wrestlers. I’m not sure how long Paige is going to be around in the role but she’s doing well for now and it could last for a very long time. It’s a good choice and if it helps the movie, so be it.
