“The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart is 75 years old but you would never know it by looking at him because he looks great. It seems unlikely that WWE would want to bring in managers (Paul Heyman is an advocate) but Hart seems interested in managing a WWE Superstar. He made his pitch when WWE.com caught up with him at the premiere screening for the HBO documentary on Andre The Giant.
Here is what he said:
“You know what? All of them are great but I like Elias. He plays guitar and me being from Memphis or course and look what I did for the Honky Tonk Man so Elias this is for you. Dick Clark told me something … he said if you dress like the audience then you’re gonna wind up sitting in the audience. We gotta get you out of those blue jeans and out of those patent leather brown or black boots that you wear and that t-shirt. We gotta get you down to Memphis. Let me take you to Graceland, baby.”
Hart also said that he could help get Elias to the top of WWE. Quite frankly, I don’t think it would be a bad idea to bring Hart back to manage someone. Or perhaps, he could manage a stable of wrestlers that need help with promos and he can talk for them. Oh, and if you are wondering why Vince McMahon is not a huge of fan of managers nowadays, click here to read more.
