• Reason Behind WWE Not Featuring Enough Managers Over The Recent Years

During a recent interview with Fightful, former WWE writer Jimmy Jacobs talked about WWE not featuring enough managers over the recent years.

Below is what Jacobs had to say about the reason behind WWE not featuring enough managers:

“Managing got out of the spotlight somewhere in the ’90’s, the Attitude Era, when the era of the valet took over, in WWE in particular. From that respect, it’s a lost art. Nowadays though, look at a guy like Paul Heyman, who’s very, very, very good at what he does, who is as important to the Brock Lesnar package as Brock Lesnar is I dare say. I just think it’s coming back. I think that for so long, it was a WWE policy.

WWE really sets the tone for everything else in this business – this kind of trickle-down effect. It was literally a policy, ‘Hey, we don’t hire male managers.’ It’s really just something that’s just got going again, I think in the last handful of years.”
