One of my favorites from Detroit Big Time Wrestling! Bobby wrestled "The Worlds Most Dangerous Wrestler" Dick The Bruiser!! Andre The Giant! He starred in the movie "I Like To Hurt People"!!
Managed by none other than The Grand Wizard, Bobby had been ahead of his time by using entrance music on his way to the ring!
I am fortunate enough to stay in touch with Bobby and reminisce about the Classics.
Bobby had exquisite robes that were just stunning!
Bobby has been my guest on CPW Radio and gave so much insight and stories behind the seens.
Thanks Bobby for being a friend. You are remembered as one of the All Time Greats in Professional Wrestling!!!

You asked me for the real deal so here it is.
Heenan was born in Chicago and grew up in Indianapolis. He broke into Professional Wrestling in a very hard way. He sold Popcorn at the matches, cut Promoters lawns, washed cars, and payed his dues over and over.
I realize most fans think he is a coward, and runs away from most of his opponents.
I can assure you Bobby Heenan was not afraid of anybody.
Bobby wrestled an out of control passenger on an Airline with some assistance from AWA Heavyweight Champion Nick Bockwinkle.
BH managed some top tag teams and individuals.
From The Devils Duo(Angelo Poffo & Chris Markoff), The Blackjacks (Mulligan & Lanza), The Valiant Brothers, Baron Von Rashcke & Big Cat Ernie Ladd, to Nick Bockwinkle and Ray Stevens!
He brought Championships in both Tag Teams and Heavyweight Champions!
BH filled arenas for the WWA & AWA!
Opponents galore! Dick The Bruiser & The Crusher, Yukon Moose Cholak, Cowboy Bob Ellis,Wilbur Snyder, Pepper Gomez, and AWA heavyweight Champion Verne Gagne!
