Bobby Heenan Passes Away At 73

https://wrestlingrumors.net/breaking-news-bobby-brain-heenan-passes-away-73/ This is far from a surprise but dang it still hurts a lot.  I got to see Heenan in Orlando at Wrestlecon and I’ve seen walkers on the Walking Dead who looked more lifelike.  For me there’s no debating it: Heenan is the greatest manage of all time and one of the best commentators […]

Monday Night Raw – December 6, 1993: Come Back Bobby

Monday Night Raw Date: December 6, 1993 Location: Westchester County Civic Center, White Plains, New York Attendance: 3,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan Dang I just finished the January 1994 shows and now I get to see how we got there. We’re just past the Survivor Series where Lex Luger and AMERICA defeated the evil […]

Royal Rumble Count-Up – 1992: And it’s All for the Title

Royal Rumble 1992 Date: January 19, 1992 Location: Knickerbocker Arena, Albany, New York Attendance: 17,000 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan This year’s Rumble is often called the greatest ever, but I wonder how much of that is because of Bobby Heenan’s masterful commentary. The WWF Title is on the line in the Rumble, which to […]

Main Event – December 16, 2016: Making My Christmas Merry

Main Event Date: December 15, 2016 Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Commentators: Byron Saxton, Michael Cole, Corey Graves The dates on these shows continue to be all over the place as you hear about the show being on Friday but it’s already available, making me wonder why I care about these things in the […]

Main Event – November 22, 2016: Please Let It Be Here To Stay

Main Event Date: November 22, 2016 Location: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Tom Phillips, David Otunga I’m hoping that being past Survivor Series isn’t going to change this show’s rather entertaining run. A lot of acts weren’t on Smackdown this week so it should be interesting to see what we get for original […]

Monday Night Raw – November 1, 1993: Bobby Heenan Deserves Better

Monday Night Raw Date: November 1, 1993 Location: Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, New York Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan It’s another fresh month as we’re getting closer to the Survivor Series. Unfortunately it’s late 1993 and that means we’re in for some very hit and miss shows but we’re also in for a confusing few […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania VIII: That’s A Surprise

Wrestlemania VIII Date: April 5, 1992 Location: Hoosier Dome, Indianapolis, Indiana Attendance: 62,167 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan We’re into another huge stadium here and the interesting thing is that Hogan, while in the final match, isn’t in the title scene at all. We’ve got a double main event here of Hogan vs. Sid in […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania V: The Sequel Is Never Quite As Good

Wrestlemania V Date: April 2, 1989 Location: Trump Plaza, Atlantic City, New Jersey Attendance: 18,946 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Jesse Ventura Now for a sequel.  This is more or less the followup to Wrestlemania IV as Savage has snapped on Hogan, claiming that Hulk is jealous of the title and all that jazz. That’s really all […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania III: There Will Never Be Another

Wrestlemania III Date: March 29, 1987 Location: Pontiac Silverdome, Pontiac, Michigan Attendance: 93,173 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Jesse Ventura This is the biggest show in wrestling history with the biggest match in wrestling history as its main event. How’s that for a standard to live up to? In case you’re one of the six wrestling fans […]
