Heenan’s well-known moment includes managing Andre, the giant against Hulk Hogan in the main event of WrestleMania III. The match went on to become the most iconic moment in the archives of WWE.
The legendary manager brought Ric Flair to the then-WWF in September 1991. He was Flair’s financial advisor. Heenan was also the head of a stable named as the Heenan Family, which consolidated the strength of their alliance over any opposition.
Members of the Heenan Family included legends and notable figures from the WWE Hall of Famers. This included Nich Bockwinkel, The Blackjacks, Big John Stud, King Kong Bundy, ‘Ravishing’ Rick Rude, Curt Hennig, The Duo- Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, and Harley Race.
The commentator’s overwhelming success was augmented by the group of celebrity wrestlers he managed.
The sports-entertainment history reiterated Heenan’s verbal contests with fellow WWE Hall of Famers, Gorilla Monsoon and Gene Okerlund. This went on to be one of the most memorable moment for the industry.
The Bobby Heenan Show had a brief telecast on American television due to its high entertainment value. He was also a part of the original broadcast team for Monday Night Raw in 1993.
According to a WWE statement, Heenan’s trademark was being a mischievous manager who used his wit to communicate. This trait was considered the best in the business.
Bobby Heenan experienced early success in the World Wrestling Association (WWA) and the American Wrestling Association. He was immediately signed by the WWE in 1984. He was inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
