Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan Interview

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.

Topics discussed:

Bobby’s current life/health
Trouble with Rick Rude
Working with Gorilla Monsoon
Favorite/least favorite wrestlers he managed
Favorite moments of his career
How he developed his managing style
Thoughts on current wrestling product & state of the business
Why he decided to write an autobiography

    I have the RF Shoot he did back in 2001 (or ’02), but it has been uploaded by others before and I believe it got yanked every time. It’s a great interview.

    was misdiagnosed as having TMJ…but later discovered it was throat cancer

    Words of wisdom there.

  12. Bobby Davis says:

    My favorite manager, and commentator in Wrestling history. When Bobby
    Heenan was calling a match it didn’t even matter if the match was good or
    not, it would be entertaining just because of his comments a great deal of
    the time. Bobby “The Brain” is the man, and I most definitely miss having
    him on the call in matches.
