Teddy Long was back on WWE television all week for the 2023 WWE Draft, and fans loved seeing him around. SmackDown needs a General Manager, and Teddy Long has filled that role well in the past.

The former SmackDown GM recently spoke to Inside The Ropes, where he went into a couple of things. One question that he addressed concerned a SmackDown comeback for a full-time General Manager role. It doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen.

Teddy Long is more than happy to make a return to WWE for the Draft, or “anything else” that they need of him. That being said, a GM role isn’t in the plan.

“I’m not coming back to be a GM. I’m coming back to be a part of the draft or whatever else they want me to do.”


Teddy Long went on to say, “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.”

It seems that Teddy Long is enjoying his life as a retired WWE Hall of Famer. He has contributed a lot to the pro wrestling business, so only time will tell when he pops up next to entertain fans.
