Heenan cancels appearance at Alamo City Comic-Con due to health issues. The convention releases statement on the situation.
We have been informed by Cynthia Heenan, wife of legendary WWE Hall of Famer Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, that Bobby will not be able to appear at this years ‘Alamo City Comic Con’ in San Antonio, TX. Mr. Heenan was scheduled to appear later this month for ‘Clutch City Productions’ at one of the biggest conventions in Texas, however Mr. Heenan has canceled his appearance due to health reasons. We ask that you keep Bobby in your prayers.
Heenan reflects on his WWE Hall of Fame induction speech:
I didn’t have anything. When I was called at home by Jim Ross, I said sure. I was thinking of how I am going to open up, what I was going to say, who’s going to be there. I don’t want start out knocking this guy or I don’t want to put this guy over. I don’t really know what to do. I’m just going to go there and see what happens and I really didn’t have anything. So I was sitting there talking to Muraco and Tito. Then when they started the show and started introducing us, I didn’t know what I’m going to do. See, I never like to rehearse anything. Monsoon and I never rehearsed a thing. There was nothing written. I can’t say other people’s words and I can’t remember things people write. I just have to do it on my own. That’s the only way I’ve ever done interviews or anything, forty years in the business.
Heenan talks about what it is like the day of a WWE pay per view event:
Well, at Vince McMahon’s pay per view you get there at noon. You go in there and have a production meeting. That lasts about two hours. He’ll ask everyone questions about what we think about the program. He will read us all the program, what everyone is going to do, when they are going to through to this, when they are going to have this tape up, how the entrances are going to come, goes through everything. A whole mess of people in the room from merchandise people to television production people, no wrestlers. Just the agents, announcers, and stuff like that. Then, we get out of there about 2, 2:30.
