Legendary Manager Bobby "The Brain" Heenan Passes Away

Bobby Heenan Died

The wrestling world has lost not only a legendary figure, but arguably the greatest wrestling manager of all time in Bobby "The Brain" Heenan who has passed away at the age of 73. 

For anyone that was a wrestling fan in the 80s or 90s, you definitely know how big of a role Bobby Heenan played in numerous historic events and eras over the years. While Heenan began his career in the late 60s and was an established regional star by the 70s, Heenan became a household name in the 80s when he made the jump to WWE (then WWF) in 1984. Heenan immediately began a rivalry with Hulk Hogan by managing memorable Hogan opponents like Big John Studd, King Kong Bundy, Paul Orndorff, and of course Andre the Giant. Referring to "The Brain" as "The Weasel" was a staple if you were a fan in that era.

Post-WrestleMania RAW Roundup: Kurt Angle New RAW GM, Finn Balor Returns, Hardys No Longer "Broken"

The biggest RAW episode of the year is in the books and of course there were major stories coming out of it as per every year, so I'm going to touch on the three biggest happenings from last night's RAW.

Kurt Angle WWE Return

Kurt Angle Named New RAW General Manager
 
Anyone that watched the broadcast of the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony this year likely felt that they didn't realize just how much WWE missed Kurt Angle until his speech; the entertainment, the legitimate accolades, the presence alone - Kurt Angle needed to be back in WWE and not for just one night, and now he is. 

It didn't take long for WWE to get Kurt Angle back in the mix as he was named new RAW GM, replacing Mick Foley who was "fired" last week and will be out recovering from hip surgery for the foreseeable future. Angle is obviously a great choice as he is a character that hasn't' been seen on WWE TV in years and can now interact with a whole new era of talent, as was already seen during RAW last night. Will it lead to a return to the ring for Kurt? Time (and WWE doctors) will tell.
