In the dynamic world of professional wrestling, the role of a manager often becomes as pivotal as the athletes they represent. WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash, known to fans as "Big," recently shared his personal Mount Rushmore of wrestling managers.

This list surprisingly excludes any of the iconic figures he worked with during his illustrious career. His choices, revealed on the latest episode of his podcast, "Kliq This," offer a fascinating insight into the legends who shaped the industry.

Nash, whose career was marked by collaborations with legendary personalities like Miss Elizabeth, Harley Race, and Kevin Sullivan, opted for a different set of icons as his all-time greats. His Mount Rushmore features Bobby " "The Brain" Heenan, Jim "Corny" Cornette, Paul Heyman, and Freddie Blassie.

Each of these individuals has left an indelible mark on the wrestling world, earning their places as some of the most influential figures in the sport. Bobby Heenan, known for his sharp wit and charismatic presence, was a microphone master, contributing significantly to WWE and WCW narratives.

His commentary during Ric Flair's 1992 Royal Rumble victory remains a cherished memory for fans, as do his associations with wrestling greats like Ted DiBiase and his intense rivalry with The Ultimate Warrior. Jim Cornette, famous for his work with The Midnight Express, is renowned for his passionate and often controversial approach.

A critical on-screen presence in WWE during the mid-90s, Cornette's influence extended beyond the boundaries of the ring, leaving a lasting impact on the industry.

Paul Heyman's Legacy

Another of Nash's selections, Paul Heyman is best known for his association with WWE superstars such as Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, and Roman Reigns.

However, his earlier role as Paul E. Dangerously in WCW, where he managed legends like Arn Anderson, Rick Rude, and a young Steve Austin, solidified his reputation as a managerial great. Freddie Blassie, the only one among Nash's picks who remained loyal to WWE throughout his career, transitioned from an in-ring competitor to a manager in 1974. His management style and personality contributed significantly to the evolution of wrestling personas and storylines.
