WWE News: WWE Looking To Utilize More Managers Moving Forward

Published

on

Over the past few weeks on WWE television, more specifically Monday Night RAW, we’ve seen some interesting changes with 205 Live’s Drake Maverick leading the charge for The Authors Of Pain now, then this week Lio Rush seemingly being paired up with Bobby Lashley.

Previously, it’s been known to fans that wrestling managers has been something WWE Chairman Vince McMahon hasn’t exactly fancied, but it now looks like that’s a subject he has changed his mind on. According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there’s talk of bringing in managers from the independents to put with Superstars on television and it’s now something that company officials are thinking of storylines for.

While it’s not known specifically what has changed Vince McMahon’s mind with regards to managers, The Observer speculates that Paul Heyman’s success being side-by-side with Brock Lesnar played a role. It should also be noted that while it was said WWE is looking to bring managers in, no specific names have been revealed.

EA’s Take: Here’s something I’ve wanted for a long time, but first, I don’t know about The Observer speculating that Vince changing his mind on managers had to do with Heyman’s success. Vince is a smart guy, no matter what anybody thinks. I imagine he realizes Heyman is a one-of-a-kind talent and I don’t feel like after the last six years working with Lesnar that Vince just has this epiphany about how good managers are because of him. I do think seeing what someone like Zelina Vega has done recently, very well could have though or just the plethora of mouthpieces the company has been bringing on in general. I mean, who’s to say what changes Vince’s mind, really? Now when it comes to who they could bring in (Who? Who?), I’m admittedly not well-versed on managers working the independents. I do have one name though that I thought WWE dropped the ball on and that’s Armando Alejandro Estrrrrrrada. Why not give him another go? He was money with Umaga and had loads of charisma, but then they split the two up, made him ECW General Manager and that was that.
