The former Anonymous General Manager of WWE Raw is reportedly having a hard time finding an anonymous managerial role elsewhere in the corporate world.
“I guess the job market still hasn’t completely bounced back from the recession,” the ex-GM of Raw said via e-mail to Kayfabe News on condition of anonymity.
“I’ve applied for a lot of managerial jobs, but they’re all looking for someone whose identity isn’t shrouded in mystery.”
The Anonymous General Manager of Raw was gainfully employed by World Wrestling Entertainment between June 2010 and July 2011.
He — or she — typically communicated to WWE talent via e-mail, usually to be read aloud during live events by commentator Michael Cole.
“It was a great job,” said the nameless former GM. “Well, except for the carpal tunnel syndrome I developed from all that typing. Do you know how fast you have to type in order to write full e-mails on the fly during a live TV broadcast? Very fast.”
It has been roughly six months since WWE wished the Anonymous GM “the best on his or her future endeavors,” and job prospects aren’t improving.
“I’d even consider a non-management role,” wrote the ex-GM. “I could be an anonymous consultant, maybe even an anonymous executive assistant. At this point, I can’t afford to be choosy.”
The former GM has sought advice from Michael Cole — who used to answer e-mails without hesitation, regardless of the timing or circumstances — but has yet to receive a reply.
