Legendary WWE Manager Bobby “The Brain” Heenan Passes Away

WWE Hall of Famer Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, regarded as one of the greatest managers and all-around performers in wrestling history has died at the age of 73 surrounded by his family.

Heenan was also known for his great wit behind the announce desk alongside the late great Gorilla Monsoon on WWE broadcasts and later during his years in WCW. The news was confirmed in a tweet by Jim Ross who worked closely with Heenan for a number of years.

Heenan's cause of death is not known at this time but he had been battling a number of health issues dating back to 2002 when he was first diagnosed with throat cancer which he overcame but left his appearance dramatically altered by a subsequent reconstructive surgery on his jaw. He also battled tongue cancer during this time which affected his ability to talk. In recent years Heenan had suffered two broken a hips, shoulder and pelvis following falls.

Despite his serious health issues and difficulty talking he became a fixture at many independent wrestling conventions where he would become the star attraction.

On behalf of everyone here at WrestlingNewsSource.com, we send out deepest condolences to Heenan’s friends and family.
