WWE is considering a former WCW/TNA announcer for new 205 Live GM role



205 Live could be getting a new General Manager soon now that Drake Maverick is the full-time storyline manager for The AOP on Monday Night Raw.

As reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is looking outside of the company for a possible replacement.

Former WCW/TNA announcer/commentator Mike Tenay is being considered for the 205 Live GM role. Tenay would be a good choice for the role. His name is interesting because he is not someone who has had an affiliation with WWE and he's been out of the wrestling business since leaving Impact in 2015.

Tenay worked for WCW from 1994 until the company closed in 2001. He was the lead play-by-play announcer for TNA Wrestling from 2002 to 2015. Dave Meltzer noted that although Tenay has stayed out of wrestling since his exit from TNA, he has been keeping up with everything in the business so he shouldn't have a problem with the role.

There is no word yet on when they will debut the new GM but it seems like that announcement is coming soon.
