Bobby Heenan dies at age 73

One of the most celebrated and talented contributors to the world of professional wrestling, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan passed away on September 17, 2017 at his home in Largo, Florida.

Beginning his professional wrestling career in the mid-1960s, and making his last televised pro wrestling appearance in late 2006, Bobby's 40 year involvement with the industry greatly impacted the "golden age of wrestling."

Known to be one of the best wrestling managers, Bobby was honored by the editors of Pro Wrestling Illustrated with the Manager of the Year Award in 1972, 1976, 1989, and 1991. His time managing Nick Bonkwinkel, Andre the Giant, Mr. Perfect, "Ravishing" Rick Rude, and Ric Flair are all highlights of his career.

The self-proclaimed "broadcast journalist" provided often biased and hilarious commentary. From 1993 to 2000, Bobby was a color commentary for three of the most popular professional wrestling television programs of all time: WWF's Monday Night Raw (1993), WCW Saturday Night (1994), and WCW Nitro (1995-2000). For his significant on-air impact, Bobby was honored by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter as the best color commentator for three years in a row (1992, 1993, 1994). One of his best performances can be heard, alongside Gorilla Monsoon, watching the 1992 Royal Rumble.

Rest in Peace, "The Brain"
