WWE Hall of Fame manager Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, one of the ringside villains wrestling fans most loved to hate, died on Sunday at the age of 73.
Heenan, known for his sarcastic wit and telegenic presence, was widely considered one of the great managers in WWE history.
Heenan plied his trade as their mischievous manager by running his mouth on their behalf with a sarcastic wit considered among the best in the business.
Perfect” Curt Hennig, the Brain Busters (Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard), Harley Race, and of course, the first WWE Hall of Famer, Andre the Giant, whom Heenan led to the ring at WrestleMania III before 93,173 fans.
Heenan’s constant verbal jousts with fellow WWE Hall of Famers Gorilla Monsoon and “Mean” Gene Okerlund on USA Network remain among the most entertaining moments in sports-entertainment history.
