Greatest Manager/ Announcer of all time!! So many memories and hilarious commentary. The quickness of his wit was untouchable.

Hope WWE puts on a great tribute for him, and maybe a special on the network.

-C!

Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan were my favorite announce team of all time. 

Heenan had the greatest sense of humor out of anyone in pro wrestling, and he was undeniably great as a manager and as a commentator. If I was ever going to be a wrestling manager, he'd be my role model.

I loved his humour.

In early 1992, on an edition of "The Barber Shop", the Rockers split up when Shawn Michaels superkicked Marty Jannetty and threw him through a glass window.

I remember Heenan's comments after Jannetty was thrown through the window:

"Jannetty dived through the window to try to escape, what an act of cowardice!" 

Also, I remember Heenan's confrontation with Mr. Fuji at the 1990 ROYAL RUMBLE. (SPOILERS): Andre the Giant had eliminated the Warlord, leading Fuji to jump on the apron and complain. Heenan pulled Fuji down from the apron - and then Fuji threatened Heenan with a stick. Commentator Tony Schiavone said, "It's every manager for himself!"
