One of the legends of old school wrestling passed away on the weekend, as Bobby “The Brain” Heenan died at the age of 72. Fans and wrestlers alike flocked to social media to pay their respects to one of the best managers in the history of the business. On Monday night, the WWE aired a tribute video their fallen Hall of Famer.
The man known affectionately as “The Weasel” managed some of the best in the business, including Jesse “The Body” Ventura, Big John Studd, Paul Orndorff, King Kong Bundy, Rick Rude, Harley Race, Mr. Perfect, and Andre the Giant (among others). He was probably the greatest heel manager of all-time, and continued working in the wrestling business as a commentator and making sporadic appearances in WWE and TNA until roughly 2006.
Here’s the video:
RIP to one of the greatest.
