10 Key Personalities That WWE Underappreciates

2 March 2016 3:46 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It’s fair to say that, over the past thirty five years, Vince McMahon and WWE have established a poor habit of greatly under-appreciating some of their most valuable contributors. Regardless of how they ended up in the unenviable position they are in, too many former WWE personalities have had their place in history slighted for one reason or another.

In almost every case, it is varying degrees unfortunate and sad to see the hard work and sacrifices that these individuals have made throughout their career not receive the same type of recognition had it been credited to someone else, someone that is on the good side of Vince & Co.

Despite what Vince McMahon would have people believe, loyalty to the WWE doesn’t always pay off.

Sure, there are some individuals whose careers would make a good argument against this point. Guys like The Undertaker, Pat Patterson, »

10 Noisiest Wrestling Managers Ever

1 March 2016 1:03 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

There are many things that make a good wrestling manager, the most important being mic skills. After all, what else is a guy who’s not grappling going to do add to the production?

Another key skill, particularly for heel managers, is the ability to make their presence felt during matches. Anybody can just blend into the background as the audience focuses on the action in the ring, but it takes a particular type of manager to become the soundtrack to a match.

Whether it’s to cause a distraction, draw heat, or just through commitment to the character, there have been a number of managers/valets who excelled at the art of the sonic attack.

It’s important to keep in mind that for the purposes of this article, noisiness doesn’t in all cases equate to greatness. For example, Bobby Heenan was arguably the greatest manager ever, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Bobby “The Brain” Heenan

27 February 2016 12:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. Mention his name to a wrestling fan, particularly an old school one, and you can guarantee that person will smile. Over an illustrious career that spanned over five decades and saw Heenan work as a wrestler, manager, color commentator, TV host and more, Bobby was a part of literally hundreds of moments and memories in wrestling. Enough for him to fill two biographies which, incidentally, are both worth checking out if you haven’t already.

Heenan was an integral part of what is still considered to be the greatest wrestling attraction of all time – Hulk Hogan vs Andre The Giant at Wrestlemania III. When the babyface Andre first walked out onto Piper’s Pit with Heenan at his side, prompting a devastated Hogan to ask “What are you doing with him?”, the road to WrestleMania officially began. Andre’s association with ‘The Brain’ was »
