Raymond Louis Heenan (November 1, 1944 – September 17, 2017) better known as Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, a American professional wrestling manager, wrestler, and color commentator, best known for his time with the American Wrestling Association, the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling.

Frequently described as the greatest professional wrestling manager of all time, he was known for his skill in drawing negative reactions for himself and his wrestlers. He was paired with numerous wrestlers, including Nick Bockwinkel, whom he led to the AWA World Heavyweight Championship, and he became an integral figure in the 1980s professional wrestling boom by managing King Kong Bundy and André the Giant in WWF main event matches with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 2 and WrestleMania III respectively. Known for his quick wit and comedic ability, Heenan also served as a color commentator and is remembered for his on-screen repartee with Gorilla Monsoon. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
