This is an interview with Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, conducted by Between The Ropes from summer 2002, right around the release of Bobby’s first book “Bobby Heenan: Wrestling’s Bad Boy Tells All”.
The folks at Between the Ropes were kind enough to email me this interview some years ago after it had been cycled off their website. I always thought the discussion was intriguing and fun to listen to. I decided to upload it so fellow wrestling fans of the good ol’ days who enjoy listening to some of our favorite personalities tell their stories could add another memorable entry to their collection.
