WWE Icon Bobby "The Brain" Heenan Passes Away

I remember as a kid, I loved the USA Network on Mondays.

Home of the Cartoon Express and followed by Monday Night Wrestling hosted by Bobby “The Brain” Heenan and Gorilla Monsoon.

Ahh…Wrestling Fashion sense.

‘The Brain’ had a long career in professional wrestling as a wrestler and promoter of the “Heenan Family”, but he was most well known to my generation for his comedic rants while announcing wrestling on Monday nights for the WWF (later the WWE) and WCW during the ‘Monday Night wars’.

Heenan’s passing was initially announced in a Tweet by announcer Jim Ross and later confirmed by the WWE.
