The news of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan's passing today gutted me.
I loved our time together.
No one ever did it better than the Wease.

Sad new to report this evening, the greatest wrestling manager of all-time as well as the greatest heel wrestling announcer of all-time Bobby “The Brain” Heenan has passed away at age 73 today after a long illness. There was only one Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, his quick wit as an announcer led to some of the most memorable quotes and hilarious moments in professional wrestling history while paired with his dear friend (and on-screen foil) Gorilla Monsoon. , he was also incredible as a dastardly heel manager that you loved to hate. Bobby Heenan had unfortunately been suffering from throat cancer since 2002. Its time we look back at a true original, who made professional wrestling so enjoyable, and who everyone that loves the wrestling business truly loved.
