Craig Wilson, Brian Damage, John Carbery, Amerigo Diehl, Jamie Lithgow and Russ Morgan. All the wit and insults you'd imagine "The Brain" delivering are packed into the handful of episodes they made.

I haven’t even gotten into his time as a “broadcast journalist” with his impeccable comedic timing hosting Prime Time Wrestling with Gorilla Monsoon or when he got his own segment called “The Bobby Heenan Show.” A true legend. All around, Heenan was a master of everything he did. It was delicious, but luckily Monsoon wasn’t there to spice it up. Some unintentional comedy from Bobby Heenan came about during Lex Luger's WWE debut. Heenan….I remember seeing interviews with him and Bockwinkle, Stevens and Lanza in the AWA and we all know Nick could speak for himself talking down to the mindless cretins, but Bobby added something to those spots insulting Gagne, Crusher, Billy Robinson, Bruiser and whoever else was challenging his charges.

In this segment, after a beating handed out by Ken Patera, Bobby Heenan donned a neck brace and did a lot of complaining. The back and forth discussion/bickering between Monsoon and Heenan made for incredible comedy. Hands down one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Favourites quotes would fill a website because Heenan is that quotable. Bobby « The Brain » Heenan a été le manager de nombreux catcheurs. [11] Instead, Heenan managed Big John Studd in his feud against André the Giant.

Back to Tony’s, as our pair find a table, with Gorilla going into overdrive about how fantastic this place is, gushing over a wood table with a couple of chairs of all things. Even with how silly this concept is, "The Brain" sells it. While most of the AWA talent left for the WWF during this time without giving proper notice (the AWA required departing talent to work a six-week notice for booking and syndication-based reasons, with most talent claiming that WWF promoter Vince McMahon paid them extra not to work out their notices with the AWA), only Heenan worked out his notice in good faith to the Gagne family.
