• WWE Hall Of Famer Confirms He Won’t Return Full-Time
We recently reported that there were rumors about former SmackDown General Manager Teddy Long possibly returning to WWE on a full-time basis as a new General Manager, a position he already held between 2004 and 2012.
On an interview with Inside The Ropes, Teddy denied those rumors and stated that he’ll only return occasionally but won’t be back full-time.
Here’s what Theodore R. Long said:
“I’m not coming back to be a GM. I’m not there to try and be full-time anymore, I really don’t want that. I just want to enjoy the rest of my life.
If they want me to come back and do something, I got no problem with that.”
Teddy Long appeared on RAW and SmackDown recently to announce Draft picks.
