10 best moments of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan
The world of Sports Entertainment has lost one of its brightest stars with the death of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. Heenan's career spanned decades and he was a part of several of the most important moments in the history of the business.
Here, we look at 10 of his best ever moments that made him all-time greatest manager and colour commentator.
#10 Bobby introduces Lex Luger!
By 1993, Bobby had become a full-time announcer, however, he was still seen as the best "heater" on the roster and his endorsement would help to legitimise a new heel immediately.
In the build to 1993's Royal Rumble, he began to hype a new addition to the roster, known only as "The Narcissist". On the night itself, Bobby revealed to the crowd that this was none other than former WCW World Champion Lex Luger!
As Luger posed in front of mirrors, Heenan gushed praise over the new heel, making the crowd HATE him.
While Luger didn't stay heel for very long, a big part of his initial success was down to that debut with Heenan and Luger's penchant for big debuts didn't end there, with him later firing the first salvo in the Monday Night Wars by appearing on Nitro, which Bobby also played a big part in!
