Bobby Heenan Passes Away

Bobby Heenan has died, aged 72.

Heenan, known as ‘The Brain’, is considered by many the greatest manager in wrestling history. He had been battling throat cancer since 2002.

He made his name in the WWF during the 1980’s, as the main threat to Hulk Hogan, managing multiple wrestlers in their quest to dethrone Hogan and claim the WWF Championship. Most memorably, he led out Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III. He also later led the Heenan Family, and was involved in a lengthy rivalry with Big Boss Man.

He would eventually move away from managing and into the announce position, forming a memorable partnership with good friend Gorilla Monsoon. The two hosted All-Star Wrestling and Wrestling Challenge, while Heenan worked on the early episodes of Monday Night Raw from April to December 1993, before his departure from the WWF. One of his most famous and memorable announce appearances was during the the 1993 Royal Rumble match when Ric Flair captured the WWF Championship.

He also took his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
