    Bobby Heenan Interview

    Here is our interview with WWE Hall of Famer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan from 2002

    How did you get into wrestling?

    Bobby Heenan: Bought a ticket

    Did you have any influences if so who?

    Buddy Rogers & Ray Stevens

    What was your schedule in the WWF like compared to that of AWA OR WCW?

    AWA: 3-4 times a week — some air, some car

    WWF: 25 days a month — mostly air, some car—it was rough!

    WCW: 2 times a week — all air

    If you were going to manage a wrestler one last time who would it be and why?

    The big kid named Brock Lesnar over at the WWE. He’s and has that specialty about him.

    Everyone has an opinion about who’s the greatest wrestler ever. Who do you feel is the greatest wrestler and why?

    Like asking who’s the greatest actor or actress–they’re all different. Would have to say for the one who put the most people in the seats –Hogan!

    What wrestlers if any do you still keep in contact with?

    None really — Mosca, Harley, Bastien Raschke — once or twice a year.

    What are the PROS and CONS of Professional wrestling ?

    Pros: Travel, Interesting people & places
    Cons: No benefit, no retirement, no residuals etc.

    Do you have any words of wisdom for someone thinking about getting into the Professional wrestling business?

    Get an education and got a job with benefits. The wrestling business, in my opinion, is over.
