An overwhelming success
This week on RAW, the Superstar formerly known as “Coach” was named as Mr. McMahon’s new Executive Assistant. In his first night on the job, the new Executive Assistant gave fans a No. 1 Contender’s match for the WWE Championship, an Intercontinental Championship match, and brought a free agent Superstar to RAW. WWE.com caught up with Mr. McMahon’s new right hand man after RAW to get his thoughts on his first night on the job.
Early on in the interview, it was made clear that the man known as “Coach” was no more. “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, before we even get started, please use my proper name, Jonathan Coachman. Thank you.” With no choice but to adhere to the Executive Assistants request, the interview began.
An excited Coachman was more than willing to give himself credit for an accomplished first night on the job. “It was an overwhelming success.” The Executive Assistant continued, projecting the same success for the foreseeable future. “In these chaotic times, it can be difficult for Mr. McMahon to keep his finger on all of the happenings on RAW. That is where I come in. Mr. McMahon doesn’t have any time to waste, and neither does Jonathan Coachman. With the two of us running the show, you can be sure you’re going to get your money’s worth.”
In regards to his qualifications for the new post, Jonathan was sure he held up to Mr. McMahon’s high standards. “Let’s remember, I have been around RAW for some time now. I’ve seen every aspect of the business from announcing, to interviewing to being an actual in-ring competitor. I know what’s going on in the head of a WWE Superstar. Aside from that, I’m also incredibly intelligent, which should make things a lot easier.”
As for the final word on RAW, Coachman made it known that Mr. McMahon was still the boss. “Let’s not make any mistake about it, Mr. McMahon is still in charge around here, I’m just the right hand man. That being said, my opinion will still be very important in the day-to-day operations of RAW. I encourage the WWE Superstars to share their feelings with me. My office doors are always open. Jonathan Coachman has always gone 24/7 and 365 days a year, and in my new position, you can be sure nothing is going to change.”
