The Doctor of Style Slick was one of the main stay managers in the WWF in the mid 80's and early 90's. He managed lots of different talent, including Rick Martel, the Big Bossman, and the tag team of Power and Glory. However, I don't think any of his men ever won any gold. But hey, the Slickster was one of the most entertaining managers of all time.
My first memory of Slick was on Central States Wrestling when he was managing Butch Reed. This was right before the duo headed to the WWF. And once they arrived, Slick was paired up with "Classy" Freddie Blassie as he seemed to be the heir apparent to Blassie's stable. Once Freddie retired, Slick took over the contracts of the Iron Sheik and Nikola Volkoff.

One of the WWF memories I have of Slick is his singing of the song "Jive Soul Bro" on the Piledriver album. I still chuckle when I hear the song, which I have in my iPod. It became the anthem for the Twin Towers.

It wasn't long after that Slickster disappeared again. He's popped up from time to time in the past on WWE television, including a guest spot at a recent Wrestlemania. He was part of a backstage dance party. He was also a part of Old School Raw. I'd love to see him get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at some point.
