Even though he'd been ill the past several years, this still hits hard.

I'd given a friend of mine who's in the pro wrestling business my "I Wish Monsoon Was Here" Raw Deal card. He got Heenan to sign it for him. According to my friend, Heenan's face lit up as soon as he saw the card.

I have no doubt that Gorilla Monsoon is eagerly waiting to greet him.

Pretty much the whole Heenan Family is reunited up there besides Arn and Tully.

I can only imagine the chaos they're causing.  :(


RIP to the greatest manager, and color commentator in the history of Pro Wrestling.

Wait, did I miss Haku/Meng passing?

For me Heenan made the 1992 Royal Rumble.  If you have the network, it's worth a watch once more.  If you don't, well, searching for "youtube royal rumble match 1992" may pull up a good result to listen to.  That is probably my most lasting Heenan memory, but he's got COUNTLESS others.  RIP man.

No.  Even death fears Haku after hearing the stories, and I don't blame death.

After having a discussion with friends on his legacy, we realized that Heenan shaped everything in the business st least as much as Hogan or Flair, and probably more-so.
If WWE doesn't have a huge tribute to Heenan, they are doing him a huge disservice.

How can you forget HAKU?? (Geshundheit!!!)

My favorite Heenan story, it's Prime Time Wrestling and he's talking to some random guy in the crowd:
"Are you married sir??"
"Yes I am"
"How long are you married?"
"20 years"
"You realize if you had killed her instead you'd be out by now right??" :laugh: :laugh:

The only reason Haku is still alive is because the good lord above is afraid he couldn't take him one on one.  :P
