 - Max Levy

The manager is a dying species in professional wrestling. It’s too bad. Managers added so much to the game. They voiced threats. They made boasts and brags and took credit for the accomplishments of their protégés. They laid down bounties. They interfered whenever the going got rough. And more often than not managers took beatings for their troubles. This time we look at the managers of Mid-South Wrestling and the chaos they caused. Only a few managers passed through the doors of Mid-South Wrestling but they definitely made their mark. 

General Skandor Akbar:

It is very fitting that in this alphabetical listing of managers that General Skandor Akbar should come first. What I always remember about Akbar is his voice. Voice may be too kind a word. When it came time to cut a promo, General Akbar didn’t just speak. He growled. He snarled. His eyes closed to angry slit yet were piercing enough to melt the TV camera. It literally seemed like Akbar might come right through the screen and get nose to nose with you to make his point. The General guided many different stars throughout his long career in Mid-South. King Kong Bundy, The Missing Link, Ted DiBiase, The Wild Samoans, Killer Khan, One Man Gang, Steve Williams, The Assassin, Kareem Muhammad, Hercules Hernandez, and Buddy Landel were among the men managed by Akbar during his dark reign of terror in Mid-South Wrestling.  

However none of these stars were as closely linked through the years as Kamala the Ugandan Giant. Whether Akbar’s target was Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Butch Reed, Junkyard Dog, or Magnum TA, Kamala was always the main weapon in the arsenal of Devastation Incorporated. In 1983 Andre the Giant came to Mid-South Wrestling. The fans were excited about the possibility of seeing two of the biggest men in wrestling collide. A brawl on Mid-South Wrestling led to Kamala body slamming Andre and busting open the French star. This action rocked the wrestling world. Few wrestlers had ever manhandled Andre the Giant in this manner. General Skandor Akbar’s man was one of them. This act of brutality led to Andre vs. Kamala matches throughout Mid-South Wrestling.  More...
