One of the greatest managers of the AWA and WWF in the 80s
And one of the greatest commentators in the WWF and WCW in the 90s

This one stings a lot. I've been a fan since his AWA days. For my money the greatest manager of all time. There will never be another one like him.

RIP Brain. Thank you for many years of entertainment that will last forever.

I started watching wrestling in'83 so I didn't see much of his AWA work as it happened

But I know he was a great manager there as well. Especially with Bockwinkel

Easily one of the greatest of all time. I can't say I didn't expect it, but it still stings a little.

Sad news, but I hope he's in a better place now. I don't know if I saw him in any shape or form since his Hall of Fame induction over a decade ago, but he didn't look well then. RIP, Weasel.

He looked in rough shape, to put it nicely. It was heart breaking seeing him physically in recent years.

Best ever, IMO.

I like to think Heenan's somewhere else, giving the Afterlife Welcoming Committee some sarcasm and/on grief. Maybe he's arguing about the funeral expenses. "Bad enough I'm a stiff. Now you gotta' stiff my family?!" Pretty soon somebody walks in and says: "will you stop?!" Heenan looks over and says: "hey, you big ape. I thought I smelled bananas. Guess they'll let anybody in here". Then they hop in a golf cart and Gorilla takes him on a tour, with Heenan making wisecracks all the way...
