In WWE, Maverick is the tiny GM who wears a bow tie. They did give him a namecheck as Spud on his first appearance, but he's been pushed as a former wrestler.
Even based on his TNA gimmick, it's not like Spud has credibility as an in-ring performer.  I have no problem with him being booked as a cowardly heel.  He does it well.  I do think it's absurd that on 205 Live he's still a babyface commissioner simultaneously though.  And it doesn't really fit anyone's gimmick for him to be with the AOP.  They should certainly fire and destroy him next week for costing them the belts. 

And Roode and Gable can only be salvaged if they're put into a feud with The Revival and are allowed to have NXT-style matches with them over these titles.  I'm not holding my breath.  Rollins mentioned The Revival as specifically being held down as a shoot comment since they're heels and he's a face, and then they followed that up by...not having The Revival on the show again.
