    They could do separate dvd releases of Jimmy Hart & Bobby Heenan anytime and they would sell as well

    If there's no Bobby Davis or Wild Red Berry then it's not complete.

    I'd say it's a pretty good list of managers.

    I've been following wrestling since the 80's and I don't even know who Bobby Davis and Wild Red Berry are. Care to enlighten?

    Thanks.

    They were big in the sixties, and they were the 2 main WWWF managers. Davis managed Gorilla Monsoon, Dr. Jerry Graham, The Beast and others. Berry took over Monsoon when Davis left. I believe he also handled Professor Toru Tanaka among others.

    Oscar,
    Your so right about Bobby Heenan, and Jimmy Hart. They are by far the best wrestling managers ever, and so very funny. That being said, I wish the greatest wrestling managers release would be 2 discs instead of 1. With so many managers represented, I think they could do a little more than 1 disc.
