Should WWE bring back managers?

Managers. They have been in WWE since it have started, they elevated superstars and helped them to get over with the crowd. Now... They're gone. Only MANAGER (I don't count Rosa Mendes, because they are more like a Stable) left is Vickie Guerrero.
Why should WWE bring Managers Back?
For one simple reason. There is a lot of Superstars that are pretty good in the ring, but their mic-skills are not good enough for being elevated to main event or even upper-mid level. With managers they could just be good mid-carders, then, if they'd tighten up their talking abilities, manager would leave his protegee and help another one.
Who needs a manager?
Let's start with simple example. Heath Slater. He has charisma, he is nice in the ring, but he also has a small speech inpediment, that makes him sound a little bit stupid. Who would be his manager? Let's give him Jimmy Hart! They did it on Smackdown: Blast From The Past, worked pretty good in my opinion, and with Hart as his manager, that guy could actually win some gold. After his upcoming feud with Flo Rida, of course.
Another one. What would you say to The Usos being managed by their father, Rikishi. Who wouldn't want to see this? Instant Tag-Team Champions, and if you think they're over with the crowd now, with their dad they could just blow the roof off. Because, let's be honest, Jimmy & Jay can't talk, and Rikishi can, so it's obvious, that they do need him. Wait, why didn't WWE put them together? Are there any explainations?
Who else could be a manager?
Well... I'm seeing Matt Striker as a great manager, but I don't exactly see who he could be managing.
Scott Stanford. He is an announcer, too, and I think he could manage Zack Ryder, but The Ultimate Broski doesn't need any manager right now, so let's just throw him to some random superstar.
Anyone else? Teddy Long. He was a manager once, and I think he could elevate some talent, like Kofi Kingston.
And of course legends as managers. Roddy Piper? He could work with Drew McIntyre. Bret Hart? Tyson Kidd. Unlimited options.
Is 'E' bringing managers back?
Yes, kind of. I think they're getting them back, for example we have this
Abraham Washington/Mark Henry angle, and IMO A.W. is possible to help Mark to win WWE Championship.
I just hope they'll stick to this idea and won't stop just at him.
Why this could be a bad idea?
A manager could hold back the talent. Let's takie a quick peek at heat magnet, Vickie Guerrero, who is main reason for Dolph Ziggler still not being in Main Event - she makes all the heat, and Show Off is just not getting enough microphone time.
Even with this, I still would love to see more managers being used on WWE TV. What are your thought on this? Write a comment! And you also can follow me on twitter @SuhaylStar
