WWE SmackdownWill a New GM Be Named For Smackdown?

While Vince McMahon announced that Diva AJ Lee would be the new GM of Raw, no general manager was named for Smackdown this week. Additionally, WWE.com has posted an article up questioning whether or not the show even needs a GM, so it's possible WWE will not be naming one for Smackdown.

Lawler Says Kaufman Should Be In HOF

WWE.com has posted an interview with Jerry Lawler, during which he speaks on the 30th anniversary of the legendary feud between himself and Andy Kaufman, and the following is an interview highlight:

Andy Kaufman Paving The Way For Celebrities In Wrestling:

"I really feel, in my heart of hearts, that he was responsible for that. I certainly believe that Andy Kaufman deserves a spot in the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame. Without a doubt, we would not be where we are today without his involvement. I really feel that way. Even at Raw 1,000, we had Charlie Sheen challenging Daniel Bryan to a match. It’s Andy Kaufman revisited as recently as last night."
