Yeah, Sherri had that "it" factor.. She made Macho King come off as a major heel. She was a great contribution to some of Macho's early 90's success..
Sensational Sherri i believe wrestled for AWA or something. I saw her on Espn classics the other night..
Sensational also managed the HEART BREAK KID, his first manager..
we all know HBK, right?
Sherri was potrayed ruthless to a T, and had very very nice microphone skills. I coulda said Sable, Sunny, or Marlena, but Sherri was before them, and in a GREATER time and role.. no offense, all those are fine, but Sherri? Sherri was an elite manager, she played a huge role, a little more charisma then those ladies..

Sherri is definitely one of the best, if not the best. Probably the most obvious choice here.
The top 3 IMO:
Senational Sherri (or Scary Sherri)
You've covered Sherri, so let me cover the other 2. Then I'll argue whatever changes you make in the next one.
Elizabeth kept up with Hogan and Savage, two of the biggest superstars of all time. It took a great manager and a strong woman to be up front and center with big names like that.
In a time where there were hardly any female managers/valets at all (basically just her and Sherry in the WWF), her star shone brightly.
Chyna was the only manager of her kind. Nobody has ever been as big or as scary as her. She revolutionized the role. She wasn't just a manager, she was a body guard. She was an enforcer. She was scarier than some of the wreslters. Chyna stepped into a major role with DX and HHH, so she wasn't some small time manager either.
Both of these women managed top wrestlers in the sport and both are legends.

I got Sunny because she managed all these GREAT tag teams..
The Smokin Gunns
Legion of Doom 2000
Farooq... a.k.a Ron Simmons..
PWI Manager of the Year (1996)
Slammy Award for Best Buns (1996)
Sunny was plain F-I-N-E..
She was the most downloaded figure on American Online at one point, she's a 2011 member of the WWE HOF, and she knew how to draw the crowd, minus beauty..

"I got Sunny because she managed all these GREAT tag teams.."
Really? What was great about:
The Body Donna's
None of those tag teams can even hold the jock strap of some of the all time greats.
All 3 of these teams are pathetic.
Great tag teams are guys like: The Rockers, Demolition, Hart Foundation, etc....
Not those bums you listed.
So 2 of your 3 are:
Which of my 3 are you taking off?
If you take off Elizabeth, you're saying Sunny (one of many females in the business in the last 10 years) is more recognizable and more impactful on wrestling than Elizabeth? Liz is one of the most recognizable faces in wrestling history.
As for Chyna, she managed some real talent. Shawn Michaels and HHH are legends. Did Sunny get her own Cover for Playboy? If she did, I never heard about it.
I will give you 1 reason why Sunny is not a managerial great and why she shouldn't be in the HOF:
Montreal Screw Job
She was the basis for Brett Hart getting run out of WWF, because of an alleged affair while she was dating Shawn Michaels. She is the reason WWF lost The Hitman.

First of all
the Smokin Gunns were pretty bad ****, and so was the Legion of Doom.. Godwins weren't too shabby either .. the Body Donna's... they won the straps with Sunny.. R.I.P Chris Candido
quit hating.. I can't believe you hated on the Smoking Gunns?! lmao..
3x Tag champs..
anyway, NO, i'm not excluding Ms. Elizabeth from the top 3, but i will exlude her for arguments sake.. ORIGINALITY?
Oh, and since when is Chyna considered a women? She beat Jeff Jarret's **** outta the WWF.. Doesn't she have a _____s, lol!
I got Kimberly Page.. Diamond Dallas' ex. wife..
She appeared in Playboy news stand pictorials from 1994 to 1999, and has been featured in Iron Man magazine for her fitness workouts.
Diamond Dallas Page
Booty Man a.k.a Brutus Beefcake
Johnny B. BAdd a.k.a Marc Mero
& Mike Awesome
debut '91 & retired '01
She's by far the best WCW manager that was built up straight from the company, and didn't come from up "north"..
I mean, this gurl created and acted in the NITRO GIRL parade....
Kimberly fueded with Ms. Elizabeth off and on in WCW, what great did Chyna fued with?

My mind is boggled. How do you not have Miss Elizabeth or Trish Stratus?
The topic you chose is top 3 and then you say you don't choose the top 3 because you want "originality" in your picks. That doesn't make much sense.
As for your last pick, I think that's a bad pick. Worse than Sunny, for sure.
She managed wrestlers who had gimmicks that were worse than their "bigger' named personas. Marc Mero and Brutus Beefcake were household names. Bootyman and Johnny B Badd were bad gimmicks and a manager for "weaker" wrestlers can't be a "Top 3" of all time.
Kudos for starting the Nitro Girls, but that makes her a great executive or innovative front office person, not a top 3 manager of all time.
You ask what great Chyna feuded with? Ha. She had a long feud with Jeff Jarrett. She lost a title belt in a triple threat match against Kurt Angle and Eddie Guerrero.
My manager beat up boys! Your manager pulled hair and clawed at the eyes.
I think my 3 managers are iconic. You have 1 great one, 1 borderline and 1 who shouldn't have even been mentioned in this TD
