WWE: Wrestling legend suffers freak injury

Published Add your comment

WWE legendary manager and announcer, Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan has suffered another health setback after falling out of bed whilst in Las Vegas last month, the Wrestling Observer reports.

Heenan was in Sin City with his family to attend a wedding, but were forced to miss the joyous occasion when the Hall of Famer broke his shoulder whilst getting out of bed.

The injury comes just a few months after Heenan broke his back in a fall towards the end of last year. Wrestling Observer newsletter reports that the legend's brittle bones are likely due to the number of cancer treatments he has had to receive through throat and tongue cancer struggles.

After a career wrestling in AWA, Heenan managed a number of wrestlers in WWE. His clients included Rick Rude, who became World Champion after defeating The Ultimate Warrior.

Following a number of injury concerns, Heenan switched once again to announcing despite crossing the line again to manage Ric Flair.

Heenan was inducted to the wrestling Hall of Fame in 2004, shortly before Wrestlmania XX.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Heenan is in good spirits despite his recent health concerns. Hopefully that remains the case for this wrestling legend.
