WWE has legends in all shapes and sizes. Former stars from the 80's and former stars from the Attitude Era and so on.
Some make appearances in major pay-per-views to bump up interest, while some make more low key but equally important appearances at wrestling fan festivals across America.
Legendary wrestler Bobby 'The Brian' Heenan is one of the latter former stars. But it has been reported that the former WWF star will have to pull out of appearances at the Legends of the Ring and Wrestling Universe store later this year after a brutal fall.
Reports revealed on Monday that the WWE legend has undergone "important" surgery after he broke his hip after a brutal fall on Sunday night.
"As noted earlier, "Mean" Gene Okerlund revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Bobby "The Brain" Heenan successfully underwent an important surgery earlier today," wrestlinginc reported.
"T-Mart Promotions noted on their Facebook that Heenan's wife informed them earlier that "The Brain" fell last night and broke his hip. This is why he had surgery today and is currently in recovery."
Fans will be gutted
Fans attending the Legends of the Ring and Wrestling Universe store later this year will be disappointed by the news that 'The Brain' will not be present, but they will surely join us in wishing the legend a speedy recovery.
Bobby Henan joined the American Wrestling Association back in 1969 as a manager and tag team partner of The Blackjacks. After a stellar career there, Vince McMahon lured him to the WWF in 1984 where he became an awesome commentator and manager for the wrestling company.
We wish him all the best in his recovery for his broken hip.
