In Topic: Bobby Heenan RIP

Bobby made most anyone look good, including Gorilla who had his own deficiencies in the broadcast booth. Although I think Ventura was better at working around those, where Heenan could sometimes but not always. 

 

I think he gets way too much flak for his time in WCW. It's clear that Bischoff did not know how to produce him in the similar manner which Vince and Bruce Prichard did, so in that regard it is sub-par in comparison. But there were times his talent shone pretty quickly. It wasn't very often, but the three-man booth of Bobby, Tony Schiavone and Dusty were great together. Quite a bit of personal history among the three of them, and there was chemistry that must have gone unnoticed by the people that could have made them the default broadcasting team.

One of the things I asked him about was something I read in an old Sports Illustrated attributed to something he told the Los Angeles Times in 1975 in an article about a fan who died at a card at the city's Sports Arena. "One less guy to spit on me" was his quote.

Warrior ridiculed Bobby's fight with cancer in his rebuttal to the Self-Destruction DVD and Heenan's participation in it. I took that gravely personal, as someone who had loved ones who dealt with cancer myself. So yes, fuck him.

Jake Roberts WWF baby face theme is probably my fav. of all time. Still gives me chills.

 

When he came back at the 96 Royal Rumble and that music hit is still one of my favorite moments.
