There are some who say that the General Manager position on Raw is cursed. And, looking back at the history of leaders on Monday night, they might be right. Every man or woman who’s run WWE’s flagship brand in the past has seen his/her career end in humiliating fashion. To be fair, theirs is the hardest job in WWE. Nevertheless, it doesn’t excuse the famous screw-ups that put the careers of these Raw helmers in jeopardy.
Eric Bischoff Raw, 12/5/05

William Regal Raw, 9/3/07
