A King of the Ring by all measures
In the previous slide, I argued that a wrestler would struggle to seem convincing if he or she was coached to say something close to verbatim. To be realistic, every single wrestler who has sufficient in-ring capabilities or marketability can't be expected to have abundant charisma.
Contrary to the current WWE practice, the lacking of promo skills does not justify either scripted promos or a wrestler's relegation to jobbing. It should be obvious Vickie Guerrero shouldn't be the only member of WWE's managerial fold.
For many decades, it was accepted knowledge in pro wrestling that if a wrestler couldn't sell himself or promote his own matches, place him with a mouthpiece, or more simply, a manager.
The case for the return for managers is completely one-sided.
Could King Kong Bundy have ever main-evented a Wrestlemania without Bobby "The Brain" Heenan? Would The Midnight Express have become the "World's Third Greatest Crippler" without Jim Cornette and his lethal tennis racket?
To further support the cause for managers, there are several personalities already employed by WWE that could fill play the role perfectly.
Michael Cole is not entirely needed as a third wheel on the Raw announcement team, and it is no secret he wears thin on Jim Ross' patience. He could definitely draw heat for his charge as a manager.
William Regal, despite being the color commentator on WWE NXT (yes, it still exists), has sadly been lost in limbo within the company for three years and could prove his undeniable worth at ringside. Plus, it wouldn't be backbreaking for Johnny Ace and the talent department to hire a few managers off the indy scene.
I could guarantee, though, that Corny wouldn't receive a job offer.
In short, it isn't coincidence that caused the manager formula to be a success for so many, many years. Managers are a core element of pro wrestling that have been overlooked for far too long.
