Top 15 Worst Managers in WCW History

The art of the professional wrestling manager is something that has become a thing of the past in World Wrestling Entertainment for reasons that boggle the mind. A plethora of talents on the current WWE roster could possibly get over with fans if they only had mouthpieces cutting promos for them. Even more baffling is that certain individuals who are currently signed to WWE deals could be used as successful managers if only the company desired to have such characters on shows such as Raw and SmackDown. Corey Graves has been a great addition to the NXT commentary team, but he could be even more useful as a heel manager.

Back in the good old days of pro wrestling, companies such a World Championship Wrestling were not so foolish about such notions. WCW had a long history of managers being linked with wrestlers and with groups. J.J. Dillon was, for a time, the manager of legendary stable the Four Horsemen. Before he was the advocate for Brock Lesnar and the man responsible for bringing Extreme Championship Wrestling to mainstream wrestling fans, Paul Heyman was known as Paul E. Dangerously, a heel manager who had his alliance of talented wrestlers. One could see back then that Heyman was something special when compared with other characters.

Just as with many aspects of the wrestling business, WCW also had its fair share of bad and even terrible managers. First on the list is a woman who is one of the most recognizable names of her time, a manager who played a character that was strange and even, at times, hard to watch when she was featured on WCW television. The two individuals who top the list were, on television and behind the scenes, responsible for so many things going wrong in WCW. One has to wonder how different the wrestling business would be today if both of those men decided that being on-air characters was a terrible idea.

Little could anybody have imagined how the wrestling world would forever be changed when Eric Bischoff became a manager in the New World Order in 1996. Bischoff was a heel authority figure before the Mr. McMahon character ever officially began feuding with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Thus, we could blame Bischoff and WCW for “The Authority” storyline that continues to play out on WWE television in 2016. It has literally been 20 years since Bischoff turned on WCW and joined the nWo. Wrestling fans everywhere are begging the WWE to come up with a new idea.
