Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Jim Ross honor Bobby The Brain Heenan

Bobby Heenan was probably the first heel that made me cross the line. I didn’t care how big a nuisance he was to Hulk Hogan. That he got Paul Orndorff and Andre the Giant to betray Hulkamania. Watching Wrestling Challenge and Prime Time Wrestling became a treat simply because he was so entertaining.

Given his health the news of The Brain’s death wasn’t a shock, but it’s still a bummer. I’ve been slowly creating an extensive Blu-Ray collection and I’m up to mid-85 and Heenan has been even more entertaining than I remember. I’m really looking forward to this extended stroll down memory lane watching wrestling’ best manager/entertainer.
