Vickie Guerrero

While maybe not the first choice for many members of the WWE Universe, a very strong argument can certainly be made that Vickie Guerrero had a great week as Interim General Manager. Serving as GM of both Raw and SmackDown several weeks ago, WWE’s Queen Diva didn’t hide the fact that she had her sights set squarely on a full-time position. To that end, Vickie even managed to garner endorsements in her favor, as both Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan publicly lauded her efforts.

Vickie has experience in the role, and more importantly, she’s shown a marked ability to get the job done, as demonstrated by her scheduling a Three-Way Elimination Match between WWE Champion CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and Kane on the June 25 Raw SuperShow. After that match, Vickie announced a No. 1 Contender’s Contract-on-a-Pole Match for later in the night between Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler, with the winner facing World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus for his title days later in an epic Triple Threat Match on the June 29 edition of SmackDown.

Whether it’s helping to guide The Showoff to a Money in the Bank Contract or constantly seeking the approval of WWE’s Board of Directors, Vickie seems to thrive in the General Manager’s chair.
