Famed pro wrestling manager and announcer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan was hospitalized this week after he fell at his Florida home.
Heenan is expected to be released Friday, barring any set-backs.
“Doctors are going keep Bobby for the next 72 hours because his blood pressure is so low,” Heenan’s wife, Cynthia, said on Twitter.
The 71-year-old WWE Hall of Famer has had a number of health issues in the past decade-plus. He has had throat and tongue cancers and had to have his jaw removed and reconstructed because of it.
Heenan is considered one of the brightest minds in the history of pro wrestling and had one-liners for days. Here are some great Heenan gems:
“If you’re poor and you do something stupid, you’re nuts. If you’re rich and do something stupid, you’re eccentric.”
“Have you ever seen Bossman’s mother? They have the same goatee.”
“If I was managing The Bushwhackers, I’d commit suicide.”
“I’ll tell ya something about The Ultimate Warrior. This guy makes coffee nervous!”
“Do you know Koko B. Ware’s mom’s first name? Tupper.”
“It’s a dog eat dog world, and Mr. Perfect is a Milk Bone.”
“North Dakota State. What do you have to do there to graduate? Milk a cow with your left hand?
“Stu Hart trained all his kids–only three of them use the litter box.”
