Heenan's Hall

Bobby "The Brain" Heenan

Bobby Heenan is not only the first, unanimous pick to Wrestling With Friend's version of a Hall of Fame, he's the Hall's namesake itself. Bobby mastered all facets of the very sport we love: announcing, wrestling, and most importantly, managing. Bobby has been credited by Hulk Hogan himself for being the man who was really behind Hulkamania, from when he was Hogan's antagonist in the AWA managing champion Nick Bockwinkel, to following him into the WWF and pitting his men against the Immortal One in back-to-back Wrestlemanias. Though Heenan was a 'heel' for most of his existence in the wrestling realm, he's beloved by millions for his quick wit and memorable rapport with Gorilla Monsoon on WWF syndicated shows like Wrestling Challenge and Prime Time Wrestling. Though his passion dwindled in his final years due to being surrounded by less-than-remarkable co-hosts in men like Tony Schiavone and Larry Zbyszko, ham-n-eggers and nine-to-fivers everywhere will always remember their favorite weasel for his humor and those sparkly jackets.
