I was watching RAW and I saw that WWE has introduced a lot more managers. They have Heyman, Rush, and Spud but the newest pairings seem so mundane and rather rash. Rush is working really well with it, but that's down to his ability to repeatedly say "LASHLEY" and getting on people's nerves. Spud rarely talks and is just out of place, and Heyman has cut the same promo for the last 4 years. SmackDown has virtually no managers except maybe Vega and Lana, but they're more valets than managers. It seems that managers have been on the decline, in numbers, since the early 90s. However the decline in proper, quality managers has been steeper and broader since the early 90s. WWE has been a culprit of pitting random fucks together for no real reason, and it seems to have taken its toll. Some could say that WWE and wrestling has allowed workers to improve their personal charisma. However, if thats the case does that mean managers are a dying breed? There used to be a lot of managers that debuted with their workers or were supplemental to their gimmick like Kamala and his slave master or Bearer and The Undertaker. Paul Ellering and LoD, Jackyl and his weird G.I. Joe bois etc. etc. However the last of those types of pairings (that worked) was probably Heyman and Lesnar, but there is no more zest in Heyman's promos because he literally says the same shit everytime.
