Bobby “The Brain” Heenan died of organ failures

Jessica Solt, the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, told the Tampa Bay Times that Heenan died from organ failures brought on by the disease. “It was just his time,” Solt said. He had been battling cancer since 2002.

Jessica said that her father didn’t really practice in real life what he preached as the over-the-top wrestling personality. Heenan was loyal to his wife of 40 years Cindy and was always available to help friends.

Brian Blair, one half of the tag team The Killer Bees and a former Hillsborough County Commissioner, said that he misses “The Brain” already and described him as one of the best in the industry.

Lanny Poffo, the brother of the late Macho Man Randy Savage and another former colleague of Bobby Heenan, put over Heenan’s heel tactics and it was evident when WWE put Andre The Giant, who was one of the most popular wrestlers in the world, with Heenan and he was instantly hated.
