PW Boards Greatest Manager Tournament

    We've all grown up enjoying wrestling and wrestlers for a multitude of reasons. Their larger than life characters, their charisma and their crazy storylines. An often forgotten but fondly remembered element of these were the managers. These sometimes devious, sometimes comic individuals could make you cheer or boo that extra bit more and invest you further into what was going on. We're going to see who you think was the best of them all as we look to crown and see who is the greatest manager of the modern era.

    The Brain for me.

    Reasons?

    He's Bobby Heenan basically up against a hair stylist.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Has to be Robert "The cerebellum" Heenan for me.

    Had it all, and acted like a manager should, even when on commentary. He followed canon, knew what the business was all about, and how to get the reactions he wanted.

    Early pick for winner here


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,971 ✭✭✭✭chopperbyrne


    Bobby Heenan.

    Repeat this for every round until he wins.

    Nobody else comes close.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,275 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Bobby Heenan do I really need to say any more.

    As expected, The Brain saunters through unscathed. A real mismatch. Let's see if our next bout throws up something a little more competitive.
    Francine

    Francine who played a key role in ECW as a manager to some of the companies biggest names.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Stacey for me, purely because I have no knowledge of Francine's management experience in ECW


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Francine

    stacey was pretty forgettable as a manager


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    I'll give my vote to Francine too. Wasn't afraid to mix it up and took her fair share of bumps. Also was a manager in a truer sense whereas Stacey was more of a valet IMO.

    The Queen of Extreme goes into Round 2 at the expense of Ms Kiebler. Our next match has strong ECW roots but I fear it's gonna be a very one sided affair.

    Paul Heyman

    Heyman here

    A great manager for Brock,


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,417 ✭✭✭WinnyThePoo


    Heyman for his work with Cesaro ;). I honestly don't know who the other guy is.

    Heyman must go down as one of the best promo's the modern business has ever had.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,971 ✭✭✭✭chopperbyrne


    Assuming they're on the opposite side of the bracket, Heyman will be the likely finalist with Heenan.

    Honourable mentions to JJ Dillon, Jim Cornette, Mr. Fuji, and Jimmy Hart.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,476 ✭✭✭brianregan09


    Heyman obviously


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Assuming they're on the opposite side of the bracket, Heyman will be the likely finalist with Heenan.

    It's a random draw each round so they could meet at any stage.



    On we go with our next bout.
    Paul Bearer

    Can't say no to Sunny. Just can't.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,476 ✭✭✭brianregan09


    Paul Bearer , shes known more for her backstage shananigans than actually being a manager


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Sunny for me. Bearer might have had bigger boobs, but nobody was better with tag teams in mid /late 90s wwf than Sunny


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Paul

    I think hes more iconic

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,275 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Got to be Sunny for me too.


    She elevated any one she managed which is a managers job.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,989 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Yeah Paul Bearer for me.

    OHHHHHH YEESSSSSS!
    Big part of the 90s as a manager.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Well it's the timing that can decide these things and it's mere seconds that sends the iconic Paul Bearer packing at the first hurdle. I'd consider that an upset. Let's see what's up next...
    Teddy Long

    Ill go dutch dont remember teddy being a manager at all


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,437 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Dutch.

    Btw I realise that we need to give the tournament a look of credibility but ffs Sir Robert of Hernan is in it. Case closed end of game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,275 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Teddy for being manager of Doom.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,437 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    I mean not only was heenan a brilliant commentator who was sharp as you like but he managed multiple worlds champions(not that the WWF ever mentioned it) he's the greatest manager ever.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Dutch for me. Never really seen Teddy manage other than Rodney Mack etc


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators, Regional West Moderators Posts: 6,773 Mod ✭✭✭✭connemara man


    Dutch for me he somehow got Jack Swagger over and I can't really remember teddy

    Dirty Dutch beats out Theodore R Long in a decent tussle. We go old school for our next bout. First to three advances.
