When wrestling enjoyed a major boom period in the 1980s, the manager figure still had an integral role to play.
Managers could add something to the storylines and rivalries, and sometimes they could create their own feuds out of nowhere.
They were mainly used as tools to win wrestlers with limited mic skills over with the crowd. They acted as a mouthpiece in their interviews and helped them find their voice.
But during the Attitude Era, the manager breed started to die out, mainly due to the fact that sexuality and violence was all that was needed to get over.
There was a recent attempt to revive the manager gimmick by pairing up Michael "P.S." Hayes, former manager of the Hardy Boyz, with Tyson Kidd.
Although this seems to have been dropped, there are some wrestlers in the WWE now that have the basic skills but cannot get over due to a lack of charisma.
Kidd is an example as is Ted DiBiase, and maybe a manager is all they need to receive a main event push.
Whether or not the WWE decides to instigate this, managers were responsible for so many entertaining moments back in the day, and they were an everyday feature of wrestling during the Hulk Hogan era.
