Oh yeah there was nuclear heat between them. Heenan's mentioned it more then once in the various shoot interviews he's done over the years as well.Any truth these two hated each other? Sometimes they had small fall outs during commentary but I always assumed this was worked.
In all fairness though Heenan was a fish out of water in WCW to begin with.Schiavone was a douche. Heenan the GOAT.
I didn't know that. I can't remember, but what ended up happening?You could see the absolute disdain Heenan had for Shiavone the night Gorilla died. Later we all found out that Shiavone was kicking and screaming because he didn't want Heenan to acknowledge his best friend's death on the air.
I know when Gorilla Monsoon passed away while Heenan was in WCW, Heenan wanted to address it on Nitro and Tony was against it since Monsoon never worked for NWA/WCW. But Heenan was allowed to do it. Then I also read that Tony wanted his seat to sit higher than Bobby's, and Bobby made reference to it after Tony said something, and Bobby goes "what? I can't hear you from down here". As only Bobby could lol!!Any truth these two hated each other? Sometimes they had small fall outs during commentary but I always assumed this was worked.
This is definitely true but on some level I think this was probably a good thing. Jim Ross himself has said he prefers when he doesn't know the results as the element of surprise can sometimes make his announcing better, or more "realistic" at least.Didn't Heenan say something about Schiavone trying to keep the other announcers clueless as to what was supposed to happen?
