Greatest Managers of All Time
#10 - “Classy” Freddie Blassie
"Listen, You Pencil-Neck Geek" is all the great Freddie Blassie had to say to captivate an audience. He managed High Chief Peter Miavia, Mr. Fuji, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, George "The Animal" Steele and even Hulk Hogan, Perhaps his mos successful run was with Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Sheik. He led Sheik to a World Title win and the Pair to a Tag Team Championship on Wrestlemania 1. Blassie was a man who’s mere voice would make you want to punch his lights out, and at the same time you can step back and tell he was excellent at what he did. Blassie passed away in 2003 but towards the end of his life he made a few WWE appearances and heard nothing but respect from the fans in attendance. It just shows that no matter how much you hated the character, everyone learned to respect the person.
