Legendary Wrestling Manager Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan Has Died
One of the greatest heel managers and color commentators in the history of professional wrestling has died. WWE Hall of Famer Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan has died following a long time battle with cancer.
'The Brain', who started out as a wrestler, really became famous and a huge draw when he began working as a heel manager. Heenan managed the likes of Ric Flair, Andre the Giant, Jesse Ventura, King Kong Bundy and countless others.
Bobby's two greatest talents were on the mic and being able to draw heat from the crowd without distracting from the match taking place in the ring. And his later work as a color commentator was 2nd to none.
