• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 17, 2017) – Legendary WWF Manager Passed Away

On this day in 2017, we lost Legendary WWF Manager Bobby “The Brain” Heenan (Real name: Raymond Heenan) at the age of 72 due to organ failure.

He was battling throat cancer since 2004.

Bobby Heenan wasn’t just undoubtedly the greatest Manager in professional wrestling history, he was also arguably the single greatest color-commentator ever.

The Brain managed a lot of famous names, such as André The Giant, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, “Ravishing” Rick Rude, “King” Harley Race, Mr. Perfect, The Brain Busters, Hercules, Big John Studd, Haku, “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, Ken Patera, King Kong Bundy, “The Narcissist” Lex Luger, The Red Rooster and The Barbarian.

• Big Cass Issues Statement After Recent Incident Due To Depression

Former WWE Superstar Big Cass made a mess backstage at a WrestlePro event (tap here for details).

He has now issued a statement regarding this through his friend, Enzo Amore, and you can read it below:

“I have been very honest with my past struggles, and it has been an ongoing battle. On Saturday night, I obviously let my demons get the better of me and I ruined an important night for a really great guy in an unfortunate series of events.

I have worked incredibly hard to get where I am, and even harder to overcome my ongoing battle with depression. But I will work my absolute hardest to right the wrongs of Saturday night and apologize to Kevin Mathews, Pat Buck, Joey Janela, the entire WrestlePro locker room and all parties involved from the bottom of my heart.

I’m getting help from family and friends as we speak and will be getting professional help in the near future and ask all to please respect my privacy in the meantime.

When & if I reemerge as a public figure it will be in good faith and I hope to inspire those who struggle with the same mental health issues I do to seek the help they need. If Tyson Fury can do it….so can I.

Remember…I ain’t dead yet. And neither are you.

Peace and love, William Patrick Morrissey III”
