With the thread about the Heenan DVD, it got me thinking about managers. So who was the best manager? I've got to go with Bobby, but I'd put Cornette a close second. After that it gets kinda muddled but those two stand out to me.

Cornette far and away for me, though I liked a lot of them.

It's Heenan followed by Cornette for me. The problem is most of us did not see certain managers in their primes. The technology was not available back then. Sure you can see stuff now on youtube or the WWE classic channel. But that's not the same as following the promotion week after week during the time period it originally aired.
