- Wrestling legend Bobby “The Brain” Heenan suffered a broken shoulder after falling while getting out of bed on April 24th in Las Vegas according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Not too long ago, Heenan suffered a broken back when he fell. The many cancer treatments he has received have left his bones brittle.
It really is a shame that he has all of these health problems. One of, if not, the greatest managers of all time is in such poor health. Hopefully he can get in better health for the rest of his days.
