Bobby “The Brain” Heenan passed away at the age of 73. He was one of the greatest managers of all time in the World Wrestling Federation, today known as the WWE. He has been around since I was a little kid and that’s about 30 years ago. Heenan passes away from cancer complications. All this started happening to him in 2002. He leaves behind a wife, daughter and grandson. RIP!
“Heenan named competitors under his guidance as the Heenan Family, a moniker meant to show the strength of their alliance over any opposition. Members of the Heenan Family in the AWA and WWE read like the who’s who of sports-entertainment, including Legends and WWE Hall of Famers such as Nick Bockwinkel, the Blackjacks, Big John Studd, King Kong Bundy, “Ravishing” Rick Rude, “Mr. 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.” [Wrestling News Source ]
