Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

JBL seems to think Paul Heyman is better than Bobby Heenan.

I can see that.

I know its 2 different eras, and Heenan had a couple more years in than Heyman currently does, but Paul kills the Brain on promos and in crowd participation.

What will be the deciding factor on who is better, when its all said and done?

Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

Nah. Heenan will always be the greatest manager AND the greatest color guy of all time. Seriously doubt that throne will ever be challenged. Heyman is my number 2 though, he is just tremendous. Easily one of the best parts of the WWE today. He is just a master of crowd psychology.

Yeah. Heyman is a better promo cutter, more charisma and talent Heeman is a solid b+ though

Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

Yes. Heyman is one of the all-time greatest managers. Arguably #1.

Heenan has the advantage of nostalgia, but when the dust settles, Heyman should be regarded as better.

Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

People need to go back and watch more Heenan promos. Heyman's great though.

This. Anyone saying Heyman cuts better promos or was better in any way needs to to back and watch some matches Bobby managed. The guy was brilliant. Best ever, unquestionably.

Heyman's great and all but Heenan is still the greatest manager of all time.

Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

Heenan is by far the greatest manager ever, one of the best colour commentators & one of the greatest heels of all time. The guy created genuine heat in way nobody else could, he had people trying to kill him, he had arenas in the palm of his hands & he made rookies into stars simply by associating himself with them.

Heyman is brilliant & I'd consider him to be the second greatest manager after Heenan, but in no way does he surpass him.

Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

Tough call. I think Heenan is still #1 but a few more years doing what he's doing and he will be up there.

Heenan, Heyman and Cornette are the top 3 managers of all time.


I'd LOVE to see a Heyman DVD someday like the Heenan one.

Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

Tough one. Think I favour Heenan from a personal and nostalgic standpoint as he and Monsoon were the wrestling voices of my childhood, but Heyman is undoubtedly right up there. Too close to call.

But here's some Heenan GOATness anyway.
