Bobby "The Brain" Heenan quotes
In the humble opinion of Shoot That S! when it came to pro wrestling commentary there was Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and then there was everybody else.  At his peak when paired with Gorilla Monsoon calling WWF matches in the 80s and 90s they could turn even the most dull match into must see TV.  Here are a few of Heenan's gems.
