2018 hasn't been such a great year for the WWE.
They may still have a lot of money, but viewership has plummeted on their television shows and injuries, unfortunate illnesses and bad booking decisions has been their downfall.
NXT has been the main success story this year for the company, with the one-hour Wednesday night show ran by Triple H always entertaining the fans, and the TakeOver specials are must-see stuff.
But there have been a few success stories on the main roster.
The rise of Elias on Raw from a heel who didn't do much to a top babyface has thoroughly entertained fans, Drew McIntyre has had a steady rise on the red brand, and Ronda Rousey has been an unqualified success in her first year on the roster.
For SmackDown, 'The New' Daniel Bryan has ended the year-long reign of AJ Styles as WWE Champion, a change that was really necessary.
As we enter the new year though, changes seem to be happening on the main shows, with the General Manager role being phased out seemingly.
The reveal a few weeks ago that all the McMahons would now be the authority for both brands came with some confusion, but Vince's appearances on both Raw and SmackDown since then makes it seem like he's going to be a prominent figure going forward.
It's really Raw that needs a major shake-up, as the blue brand seems to be running smoothly, with a mix of experience such as AJ Styles, Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan, coupled with emerging talent such as Mustafa Ali, Andrade 'Cien' Almas amongst others.
But Vince could be set to guide another rookie into stardom from SmackDown as we enter 2019.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, per WrestlingInc, McMahon is 'high' on Mandy Rose, and he could have big plans for her in the coming months and beyond.
After placing second in the 2015 edition of Tough Enough, Rose went to NXT to perfect her craft, and just three months after her television debut in August 2017, she was called-up to the main roster with Sonya Deville and was aligned with Paige to form 'Absolution'.
It didn't last long though with Paige suffering a career-ending injury, but Rose and Deville have been paired together since on SmackDown Live.
Rose seemingly has the look that McMahon likes, almost Trish Stratus-esque, and no doubt she is improving in the ring on a weekly basis as well.
And with an increase in microphone time given to her in recent weeks, it seems like McMahon is all-in on Rose as the WWE enters January 2019.
