Heyman is one of the greatest managers of all time but he isn't touch Heenan even on Heenan's worse day. Even Heyman will admit that.

Heenan is so damn funny. Him and Gorilla were like peanut butter and jelly. They were as much of a staple of my childhood as any cartoon characters. I heard an interview with Arn Anderson once and he said Bobby could have been a big time comedian. I totally agree. Such a dry, sarcastic, snarky, south Chicago attitude. Fucking loved the Brain. He could bump like a mother fucker too.

Yeah Bobby is #1 upon further review. Heyman is a solid #2 though.

His Hall of Fame speech was like a mini roast. What a natrual comedian, too bad throat cancer affected a bit of his speech.

Absolutely NOT ... but that said, Paul Heyman is without a doubt pretty much up there, as close to and is no doubt one of the BEST things to happen in the wrestling business, but to say he's better than Bobby Heenan, is a little far fetched, clearly people don't remember Heenan's quality's as much when they say this, YES, Paul Heyman is shit hot!!!! (Personally I would LOVE to see Paul Heyman get involved in creative!) ... but Heenan really was something else, his wit, the way he would work and sell a crowd etc... which Heyman is just as good as also (working the crowd), but Heenan does pip the post on this one.

Regardless ... both of those guys are two of the BEST things to happen to the Wrestling business, it's a compliment to Heyman to be compared to and be legitimately eligible to be in the same category as Heenan (which my guess is he would say the same himself), so it doesn't really matter because both guys are absolutely fantastic, end of!

Maybe Heyman can step up to the commentary once King steps down?

Heyman is brilliant & I'd consider him to be the second greatest manager after Heenan, but in no way does he surpass him.
Keep in mind Heenan was around in a time where Kayfabe was heavily protected, therefore was a lot easier to gain heat. Heyman doesn't have that advantage, as the more he tries to gain heat the more some people seem to love him.

I think you can't make a proper comparison cos the business has changed so much, just like you couldn't really compare an athlete today to one who competed in the same sport 30 or 40 yrs ago. The game evolves and so does wrestling.

Default Re: Is Heyman greater than Heenan?

Tough call...I don't actually think Heenan was the greatest manager ever, my pick for that is Paul Bearer because he entertained me more. I also enjoy Heyman more than Heenan as well. I think my perception might be a bit biased, however. I didn't grow up with good Bobby Heenan commentary, my exposure to him on color was unfortunately his WCW work, where he was actually...pretty bad, as an overall (he did have some legendary calls, like Goldberg's title win, or at Starrcade 1997, so I give him full credit for that). I mean, looking back, all he did was sit back and crack cheesy jokes 99% of the time, playing off of whatever dumb ass thing Tony Schiavone just said. The only one at the WCW commentary table with any real credibility was Mike Tenay, and half the time he was backstage doing interviews. So maybe the fact that I didn't grow up with better Heenan commentary skews my perceptions a bit.

Anyway, I'd say as an overall, Heenan was probably a better manager for nostalgic purposes, but I enjoy Heyman more overall.

No. Bobby Heenan was better, he was simply amazing.

Heyman is a solid heel commentator.
