    With that client list, has to be Sherri, helped start the singles career of HBK, deserves a place in the final, amazing lady

    I'm sorry, i can't choose between the two. Both had huge roles.

    I'm abstaining

    Its Sherri so:D

    Sherri. As I said before it might not be a popular view but I'm not a Cornette fan tbh.

    Also.... that client list of Sherris wipes the floor with Jim's imo.

    Ah here!! And yes I did know that cornette managed Sherri. For a second before I scrolled down I was wondering "when was Stan lane a manager" but thankfully it's Sherri.

    I'll have to go with Jim cornette again as while Sherri could wrestle while cornette couldn't jim was a better manager overall.


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


    Sister Sherri cruises through to the quarters. I'd have had Jim Cornette down as a Final Four candidate personally. It's another battle of the sexes up next.

    Errr.. Vickie.

    Gertner is basically here because of the random draw gods :P

    It's not even close imo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,456 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Continuing with having another great lady in the finals, heel heat magnet Vickie who even made annoyingly screeching "Excuse Me" popular


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,980 ✭✭✭✭chopperbyrne


    Vickie

    Anyone she managed was instantly one of the biggest heels in the company.

    Vickie deserves so much credit for being that hated. She was Eddie Guerrero's widow, who should have had nothing but sympathy from the crowd, but instead became a heat magnet.

    Vickie destroys Gertner 3-0. Could she be a dark horse in this? Two big guns up now.

  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,155 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Ah feck. I hate you random draw Gods!

    Have to vote for Heenan here, but DiBiase is a likely finalist with the right type of run. But it's Heenan as a manager by a mile imo.

    I can't think of a logical argument as to why DiBiase should win this one, so my vote has to be for Heenan.


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,456 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Heenan, his antics and tactics for the family promoted them greatly and got them heat, a detestable weasel but one of a kind


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,980 ✭✭✭✭chopperbyrne


    As much as I loved DiBiase as a manager, Heenan is simply the best of all time.

    Always got his wrestlers over.

    Obviously most knew who Ric Flair was when he came to WWF, but let's face it, compared to the giant muscle heads in WWF at the time, he simply was not physically impressive.

    Heenan presented his as a god though. The real champion. A completely superior competitor compared to Hogan.


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


    Heenan has the momentum of a runaway train. Can anyone stop him? Tonight's last match goes up now and the tournament will resume tomorrow.

    Gonna vote for Dutch/Zeb based off his CV tbh.

    Worked with a higher calibre of talent for the most part imo.

    And somehow got heat for Jack Swagger of all people.


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


    Dutch for me too. Gold on the mic, gone too soon from WWE. A legend in the business, with a great mind for it. Knows how to get his client's over.

    Francine? Eh, i guess Tomm Dreamer piledrivered her once and her boobs fell out:(


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


    I'm gonna throw a vote Francine's way. I liked her and grew up watching her. Dutch was a bit before my time I feel. Plus, Francine took bumps, had sex appeal and was a little bit gritty too


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,393 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    The Queen of Extreme for me.

    She played a huge part in ECW and also managed the top players there.


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


    2-2

    Can we get a deciding vote?!

    I'll vote for Zeb, know more of him from his time with Swagger


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


    Zeb eeks out a win in a long match up. Let's get one more match up for tonight.

    I'm going for Slick huge part of the WWF in the 80's feeding talent to Hogan.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,637 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    JJ dillion as he managed one of the greatest stables/ factions ever in pro wrestling. I Can't believe cornette is out btw.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,980 ✭✭✭✭chopperbyrne


    I like Slick, but it has to be JJ Dillon.

    He managed the Horsemen.


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


    2-1 to JJ dillon as it stands. Any more bets folks?


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,155 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Slick to even things up for ****s and giggles :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,108 ✭✭✭johnnysmack


    Slick for the win cause who else could handle akeem the African dream!!


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


    We finally get there as the good Reverend progresses. We've two very different characters up next in what should be an interesting affair.

    It's easy this one. Paul Heyman. Look at the talent managed, from WCW right up to present day WWE.

    Liz, love her, just not to the calibre of Heyman. Very few are
