RYAN HALL: Lita, Heyman, Shane.  Best of a bad bunch.  Heyman is great
WHEN he's managing.

EDDIE BURKETT: Steven Richards and Ivory tended to both draw the right
amount of heat for themselves and generally are effective as seconds.  
Molly Holly did well in her role as Holly cousin/Spike's

PAUL ZOROVICH:  Stacy Keibler wins by a leg.  Well, two legs.

JESSE HARALDSON: Stacy Kiebler is simply the hottest woman ever in

AMI: Cyrus is a throwback to the good old days.  You have a male manager
that's a great talker, and adds to the appeal of an angle, rather than
take away from it.

VIKRAM BIRRING: Sinister Minister may be the last great male second. I
miss the days of Slick and Paul E. at ringside spouting off. Managers with
actual talent, what a concept.

SCOTT WORDEN: Sinister Minister was the best manager when he was still
around..  Hey, am male manager with heat.. that is number 1 by default
right..  Dawn Marie is 2 cause she always has a place in my heart for
her..  Honestly, I have to give Lita props too.. She helps the Hard y's
win, like how the outside person should..  give her that.

OTTO "HACK-MAN" HEUER: Best Second? Too. Many. Choices.  I went with (in
order): Dawn Marie (I miss ECW), Torrie Wilson, Terri (I miss Alexandra
York), Leia Meow, Chae, Alexis, Mortimer Plumtree (best on the mic since
Corny in his prime), Adara Jaymes, Steph, Lita.

CHRIS BIRD: Molly Holly is cute.

SEAN FLYNN: All my votes for this come from ECW, as they were the only
ones who seemed to be able to make seconds interesting.  I miss the
Sinister Minister, and hope that one day the WWF might be able to find a
spot for him, so while I wait, I'll give him a first place vote here.

KEVIN WONG: As of late, there has not really been such a thing as a "good"
second.  Therefore, this category gets no votes from me.

DONNY L: Molly is easily the best, who ever she hangs with they become
better (see Spike, Hurricane), Regal little time w/ Tajiri was better then
most managers are.

PETER HAZLETT: Love Stacy, just keep her out of the ring, you don't need

ESTRAGAND: Worst promotional move of 1999? The Baltimore Ravens let Stacy
Keibler walk.

JOHN C.: There has been such a lack of managers that I almost voted for
Moppy.  Instead, I just picked the hottest girls by going with Torrie,
Trish and Molly.

JOE GENTILE: Trish Stratus, I mean, come on LOOK AT HER!

BLAZEJ SZPAKOWICZ: I think this category now tends to translate as
"hottest woman". Therefore, my votes go, in order, to Torrie Wilson, Lita
and Mighty Molly. The last two get extra props for being a factor in
matches they're at ringside for. Torrie gets props for, well, for being
Torrie. :)

CHRIS LENING: Yeah, I voted for Torrie Wilson because I think she's
attractive. I am a petty, superficial man. Of course, giving me the names
of some lucha ring girls could dramatically alter my ballot. But Regal and
McMahon actually seemed to care about their wrestlers, and that's all I
ask for in a second.

BEE MONTEVERDE: The WWF needs Mike Sanders!

RAGEROCKRR: There are no good managers or seconds left.
