Breaking: Bobby Heenan Passes Away At 73 Years Old

WWE Hall of Famer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, real name┬áRaymond Louis Heenan, has passed away at the age of 73.

Heenan, who is widely considered to be the greatest professional wrestling manager of all-time, had been battling several serious health issues after contracting cancer first in 2002.

    I get that it’s sad and he was great at what he did but why is it that someone dies in wrestling their always automatically called ‘THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME’ until the next one dies in which that one then gets the title as ‘GREATEST OF ALL TIME’ When everyone uses this to every death it loses any meaning at all. William Moody managed circles around Bobby making Bobby at least only second best and Jimmy Hart and Brother Love was pretty close to as great if not better then Bobby. SORRY but Bobby wasn’t the greatest on all time. Great yes but NOT greatest.

      Mike if you combined the 3 people you mentioned they couldn’t beat Bobby. He was no doubt the greatest. His death hasn’t changed anything. He always has been the best. He was a heel’s heel and had the crowd in the palm of his hand of every arena he entered. He’s one of a kind!

      Perhaps, when someone who is one of the greats dies, you can allow for some hyperbole and exaggeration in a moment of emotion. At another time, when the question is brought up on line or in a round table, more meaningful discussion and measuring of who was the best can take place. In other words, this isn’t the best time or place to make your point.

      Mike ask any Manager still in the business after 1975 and they will tell you the top dog and the best of all time was Bobby Heenan. Bill Moody did, Bruce Prichard does, Corny does, Gary hart did, Fuji did, Jimmy Hart does, Skandor Akbar did. You are talking out of your ass.

    Mike, get back to your unsuccessful, boring, pointless, never was life. Bobby was the BEST, you, on the other hand, are a fat, virgin who lives in your mothers’ basement.

    My favorite Bobby Heenan comment Vince and Bobby was on TV and Vince said ” I bet your the kind of man that likes to kick a man when he’s down?” Then the “Brain” replied ” That’s the best time to kick him.” Classic!!

    Anonymous, I think Ill have to agree with the comment anonymous made before me “tries to keep straight face at own stupid humor”. On a serious note RIP to Bobby Heenan. Do I think he was the greatest of all time…that depends on what you are gauging his abilities against, or should I say whose. I will say this though, Bobby Heenan and Jimmy Hart both legitimately deserve “the best title”. You know, now that I am seriously thinking about it, I will have to give it to Bobby because I just remembered some of his old segments with Gorilla Monsoon and they were [email protected]#king hilarious. Now Mike, the fact that you mentioned Brother Love as one of the greatest managers of all time is simply a back judgement call. Brother Love was not a good manager but he did manage one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, that being The Undertaker. Brother Love was good on a mike no doubt but in my opinion he never sold the manager thing worth a s***. Henceforth why he ended up not doing managing so much as he did skits like “The Brother Love Show”.

      Amen Prichard admits he sucked as a manager, had a good time doing it, but knew he sucked eggs.

    I liked how even in the days of kayfabe, Bobby said things so funny and ridiculous, you felt like he was working on two levels, and one was looking right through the camera and saying to us, “You and I know this is a rib, even if the ham and eggers don’t get it” (one of Bobby’s original terms).
