Rank 'Em: Best managers in pro wrestling history

With the legendary Bobby "The Brain" Heenan's passing on Sunday, we ask where his place is among pro wrestling's long and illustrious history of managers.

Few were as good as Heenan on the microphone, whether it was ringside, in the announcer's booth or backstage cutting one of his fabled promos. But there's plenty of characters to make for a spirited debate, spanning from the days of "Classy" Freddie Blassie and Captain Lou Albano, to present-day silver tongues like Paul Heyman.

Who's the best manager of all time? Rank the names below:

Heenan, 72, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004. He is widely considered one of the greatest heels in the history of the sport.
