One of the well-known commentators and managers in the history of professional wrestling

WWE signed Heenan in 1984 after his successful run in World Wrestling Association (WWA) and the American Wrestling Association (AWA). After signing with the billion dollar company, he first managed Hall of Famer Big John Studd.

He has also managed some of the most esteemed superstars to have stepped foot in the squared circle including Andre the Giant, Ric Flair, Paul Orndorff, Arn Anderson and Mr. Perfect.

He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.

Stars from the wrestling world took to Twitter to honor Heenan.

The commentary team of Bobby Heenan and Gorilla Monsoon also set a precedent for the announce teams.

Heenan signed with WCW in 1994 after leaving WWE but returned to the company when WWE Chairman Vince McMahon bought out WCW in 2001 at WrestleMania 17 with Mean Gene Okerlund.

Several WWE superstars reacted to the death of Bobby Heenan and condoled the deceased superstar’s family on their Twitter accounts.
