What are you doing here? All Elite Wrestling has changed a lot of things about professional wrestling and a lot of that is for the better. It has opened the door for a lot of people who might not be able to get to WWE and deserve to be up on a higher level. That’s the kind of thing that can be very valuable to some younger talent, but also to some legends. One legend seems to have gotten a gig of his own.
All Elite Wrestling has posted a new interview with Jim Ross talking to Shawn Spears. During the interview, Spears mentioned having a manager who was not mentioned. At the end of the video, Tully Blanchard appeared and said that the interview was over. While not confirmed, it would seem that Blanchard is now managing Spears. Blanchard appeared at All Out, accompanying his daughter Tessa to the ring.
This is quite the debut. Check out the interview with Blanchard appearing at the end:
Opinion: I’m certainly surprised, though I’m not sure if Spears needs a manager in the first place. That being said, there certainly is an idea behind continuing the Blanchard vs. Rhodes family feud with Cody vs. Spears coming up. It might be a little too much at once but there is certainly an idea there. On top of that, Blanchard isn’t someone who has been exposed to death over the years so he still feels fresh for everyone involved.
Do you like Blanchard as the manager? Does Spears need a manager? Let us know in the comments below.
