Hey everyone, welcome back to ABYSS SAYS. In this 7th episode, I give you my top 10 wrestling managers of ALL time.
Of course, this is my opinion and I'm sure some will agree or disagree. I welcome you to message me on this site with your reactions, thoughts, and opinions on who you think we're the top 10 managers of all time.
Believe me it wasn't easy to come up with this list as there are, and were, so many great managers throughout the history of this sport. The utilization of the wrestling manager has unfortunately become a lost art in this age and day of wrestling. I personally feel that's a shame because a good manager has always been a refreshing and energizing part of the wrestling business. It's too bad that the wrestling industry, for countless reasons we could debate, has gone away from wrestling managers.
Some of my most fond memories of wrestling throughout my life have centered around the wrestling manager. I truly hope one day that the return of the wrestling manager makes its way back into wrestling.
Now I know most of you die hard fans will point to the success of Paul Heyman managing Brock as a current day example of wrestling managers. And I agree!!!! He most definitely is. He is the mouthpiece for arguably the biggest attraction in wrestling now and excels in this position. He truly has helped Brock reach new levels which is the job and goal of any good manager.
However, outside of this example, the wrestling manager has been scarce to non existent in modern day wrestling.
With that in mind, here we go with MY TOP 10 MANAGERS OF ALL TIME:
01. Bobby Hennan
Enough said right????
Bobby is the most storied and memorable managers of all time.
His resume speaks for itself. He was arguably as important and just as over as any talent in history during his WWF run.
He was attached to every major heel who came into WWF and was the antagonist to baby faces most notable being Hulk Hogan.
He was the first manager who drew me into whatever he was saying. He was so intense and convincing when getting a match or story over.
He managed every major star in wrestling history including Curt Henning, Paul Orndorf, Rick Rude, Ric Flair, Buddy Rose, Big John Studd, Harley Race, and King Kong Bundy.
And how could one forget his managing of Andre the Giant during the build up for Wrestlemania 3??
He truly garnered all the heat for Andre in my opinion. I got to meet and visit with Bobby on several occasions during my run in TNA. He is without doubt one of the nicest and funniest people I've ever met in this business.
A true class act that makes all around him feel good.
So there you go......My top 10 managers of all time!!! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!!! Take care til next time.
