Bobby the Brain Heenan: The greatest wrestling manager and announcer of all time passes away

Very sad news ..




Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, quite possibly the best manager and the best color commentator in American pro wrestling history, has died. The news was broken by Jim Ross. According to WWE, Heenan was 73.

Heenan, a Chicago native, got his start in a pair of Midwestern promotions, the World Wrestling Association and the American Wrestling Association. He was most famous for his run in the World Wrestling Federation, where he managed multiple champions in the 1980s and 1990s in his Heenan Family stable.

He managed Andre the Giant.. memorable in Wrestlemania 3.. 

Gorilla Monsoon 'fired' him on RAW... 

Complete gimmicks all the time. Each one more memorable than the previous. 

His battle with throat cancer was painful for all fans to watch .. but despite his ailments, he still made the autograph circuits fun for anyone who wanted to meet him. He never lost his humor and wit..

He was one of the main reasons growing up I grew to also love professional wrestling..

May he Rest In Peace..
