BOBBY "THE BRAIN" HEENAN
I've been asked many times through the years who my favorite manager is. That question is very easy for me to answer... it's the one and only Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
I admired and respected Bobby Heenan for many years, prior to meeting him in 1978. He came to Jackson, Mississippi with the then AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkle. It is without a doubt another story of one of my heroes becoming one of my friends. I patterned the early Percy Pringle III character entirely after "The Brain."
Years later, after joining The WWF, I was fortunate enough to able to work side by side with my managerial idol. He's the best... what else can I say?
Bobby has battled some serious health issues during the past few years, and is still standing tall and strong with his hand raised in the air. I love Bobby Heenan not just as a Legend in our industry, but as a fine outstanding human being. Now take that to the bank... humanoids!
It is my honor to add his name to my unworthy personal Hall Of Fame.
