Summary and Info
Bobby "The Brain" (or perhaps you knew him as "Pretty Boy" or "The Weasel") Heenan’s wrestling career spans 38 years from the early AWA and NWA to today’s WCW and WWF. Heenan wrestled, managed, commentated and promoted matches. Was wrestling as wild and crazy at its start as today? Try wilder and crazier. Starting in 1965 as a bag boy for Dick "The Bruiser" and the tag team, "The Assassins", he worked and talked his way into the ring. Some of Bobby’s early tag team matches, pairing with Baron Von Raschke were against Teddy the bear. No, not a guy named Teddy but a REAL BEAR. While Teddy was muzzled he did have a bad habit of getting in the ring and peeing. Wrestling as "The Weasel," in a costume, Bobby would wake in the ring from a sleeper hold, stare at his paws, see his tail and start chasing it running in circles and begin fighting anew. He did that until one day, unconscious in the ring, some spectator ripped off his tail and stole it. He tells all the stories, names all the names and doesn’t care who gets mad about it. He talks about his long running feud with Hulk Hogan, Andre, (7’ 6" and 550 pounds) "The Giant" hearing "last call" in a bar and ordering 40 martinis that he drunk until 4:00 a.m., and he reveals all about Vince McMahon of WWF. For the wrestling fan it definitely is "no holds barred" in a book you just can’t put down, at least for a count of three!
