Default Bobby Heenan should have turned pro-Hogan in '96.

I've thought about this before and recently had a discussion about it with a friend. Plus I was watching some WWF shows recently from '97 and when Hart turned heel, Lawler started to cheer on Hart and said he finally grew a brain. I think the same thing should have happened with Heenan and Hogan in '96 when Hogan turned heel. It would have been very entertaining to finally hear after all these years Heenan tell everyone that Hogan's the best ever and he finally woke up and started acting smart. It would have been great to hear him say that Hogan's been the better man than Flair.

The story was nWo vs WCW. Heenan cheering Hogan wouldn't make sense.

This, you gotta remember that "technically" nWo WASN'T a part of WCW. They "bought time" on their show because Ted Turner was a money guy. Everyone from WCW had to be pro-WCW.

Now, it would have made sense if nWo "bought" chair space for Heenan and he was their spokesman on the show. Actually, they really missed out on that. Heenan put over the heels like no other.

Well I know at first in the storyline they really made it seem like the nWo was an outside group. But once Bischoff joined that was over. But yeah Heenan cheering on Hogan after all those years of hating him would have been great. I loved it when the WWF did it in '97 with Lawler and Bret Hart.

I remember reading in an Apter mag, now remember they used to make up a lot of their own quotes, but Heenan said in there that it just showed he was right all along about Hogan, and that he was a fraud and a phony. This makes more sense to me then The Brain cheering Hogan just because he turned heel.

No, it's wrong.

The fact that Heenan didn't cheer on Hogan was a part of the story.

Think about it- Bobby Heenan, the ultimate heel, hates Hogan.

Boy, Hogan must be REALLY bad.

It made it more realistic.

too much history between hogan and heenan, from andre, to booger, to flair and on and on for heenan cheering hogan to work, unless it was to eventually work hogan in some way.

I don't think I would have liked to have heard Heenan cheer for Hogan, not after all they have been through through the years. I think it's great that they didn't have him cheering for him. At this point, Heenan was loved by all anyway no matter what he had done in the past, he just wouldn't have fit the NWO-cheerleader mould.

It fit perfectly with Heenan's character and his history with Hogan to remain against him. Remember that Heenan for years was saying how much of a slimeball Hogan was and the heel turn of Hogan proved Heenan to be right kayfabe wise.

Hit the nail on the head!

TehBrain gif says it all. Hogan was carrying that same belt Heenan proclaimed as superior with spray paint all over it to disrespect it.
