Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, one of the most renowned managers and commentators in the history of professional wrestling, died on Sunday.
He was 73.
Although a cause of death has not yet been confirmed, Heenan had been battling throat cancer since 2002.
After early success in the World Wrestling Association (WWA) and the American Wrestling Association (AWA), Heenan was signed by the WWE in 1984.
His first managerial client as part of the promotion was WWE Hall of Famer Big John Studd.
Heenan left the WWE and joined WCW in 1994 but returned to the WWE when Vince McMahon bought out WCW in 2001 at WrestleMania 17 alongside Mean Gene Okerlund.
They served as guest commentators for the Gimmick Battle Royal, a match featuring 19 WWE alumni.
Here is a video of Heenan warning Curt Hennig of the debut of The Narcissist, as well as one of many attempts to try to get into the arena for the first episode of Monday Night Raw.
