    Yep, Paul E. takes this one with ease unfortunately for Liz.

    Knowing Heyman he has Brock take out her current client before the match begins leaving her wide open for an easy pin. Devious, deadly, dangerous.

    Probably won't win but a deserving finalist imo.

    Im a paul heyman guy,

    So yeah paul heyman

    He managed a company full of talent off screen!

    Paul E Dangerously slides into the last 8. Only one more spot up for grabs, let's get to it.

    captain lou


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    To be honest, I'm kind of meh on both.

    Gonna go for Woman purely on her client list being better.

    Did Woman never manage Benoit? Thought she did for some reason?

    Anyhow, off topic! I'm going with Cpt. Lou, even if just for the British Bulldogs


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,478 ✭✭✭brianregan09


    Woman for me


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,428 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Captain Lou just because he was batsh1t crazy and as a kid I loved batsh1t crazy while watching wrestling.

    My early memories of wrestling envolve captain Lou so him him for me


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


    We enter the quarter final stages with some heavy hitters gone but with many big guns still remaining. As before, first manager to attain three votes will go into the Final Four. Please give a reason for your choice. Let's see who drew who.

    Ah Jaysus, one of these is going to the semis :pac:

    CURSE YOU RANDOM DRAW GODS!

    Ugh... I...

    Captain Lou.

    Reason: I flipped a coin :pac:

    Captain lou here too for me as I loved him back in the day


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,428 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I'm going with the Slick he was just a slick manager :)


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


    I'm going with Lou. I know little of Slick, whereas Lou, I even remember the WWF cartoon from back within in the day on The Den, and he was in it.

    Lou for me


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


    80's icon Captain Lou goes into the semi final. Who might he meet there? Time for the ballad of Vickie Bobby.

    Ha it's the same thing here as with DiBiase to an even bigger degree.

    I try to consider a coherent argument as to why Vickie should go through - and I just can't.

    Excuse me, Vickie - but my vote is for Heenan.

    Far better client list, far better manager. I think that covers it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 14,158 ✭✭✭✭hufpc8w3adnk65


    Love the brain! Gotta vote for him! Big part of my child hood! Gorilla Monsoon firing him on Raw was a great moment in my memories of WWF


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,657 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Vickie was good at getting heat but outside of that I wasn't a fan. Also it's sir Robert of heenan so he will win every time. He has some of the best lines ever uttered as both a manager and commentator.


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


    Pretty straight forward win for the Weasel. Can anyone stop him? Next matchup sees some intergender action.

    Heyman.

    In terms of talent managed they're just about even, but Heyman is head and shoulders better at promoting his 'clients.'

    Stack memorable Heyman promos against Sherri's.... yeah it's no contest.

    Heyman.

    Heyman for sure.

    So good at getting his wrestlers over.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 14,158 ✭✭✭✭hufpc8w3adnk65


    Heyman for me too! Excellent in all roles of management and love how promos


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,592 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Sherri, think she matches as the female Heenan so has to make the finals, plus epic client list


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


    Support for Sister Sherri arrives a little too late as Paul E Dangerously slides on in to the last four. There's only one spot remaining there. Who's gonna take it?

    Sticking with Dutch. Such a talent on the mic, and creatively (when he's allowed).


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


    I suppose Dutch limps over the line 1-0 in the most uninspiring quarter final that's ever happened.

    Ok so semi final time now and we might as well stick with three votes. Reasons are encouraged as always!

    Heyman. Relevant even today, when managers really aren't a thing anymore. One of the best on the mic, of any talent, of any time. In ring or not. Exactly what a manager needs to be. And look at that list of talent - have you got Mean Mark listed there Omack?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,428 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Got to be Paul E the only one that could give Bobby a run for his money.


    For what it's worth I would have voted Sinister Minister.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Paul E calls in a few favours from his old clients and Lou gets squashed like a bug.

    Heyman wins by knockout.

    An utter squash. Will it be the same here in our second semi-final?
