A permanent General Manager for Monday Night RAW and Smackdown will be announced on the 1,000th episode of WWE's flag ship show on July 23 in St. Louis, Missouri.
The last GM, John Laurinaitis, was fired at the No Way Out pay-per-view as part of the stipulation in the outcome of the match involving John Cena and the Big Show. WWE Chairman and CEO fired Laurinaitis at the pay-per-view just prior to receiving the Attitude Adjustment on the announcers table.
RAW and Smackdown have seen their fair share of General Managers over the past years including a variation of "commissioners" including Steve Austin, Mick Foley, Sgt. Slaughter, Eric Bischoff, Teddy Long, Vickie Guerrero, the laptop otherwise known as the "Anonymous RAW GM" and a ton of others.
