* CassandraTruth: Had [[{{Kayfabe}} bashed]] Wrestling/HulkHogan for years as a bad person, then ended up looking like he was right when [=Hogan=] [[FaceHeelTurn turned heel]], launching the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder NWO]].
** In fact, that night, when Hogan came out, ostensibly to aid the faces, Heenan (to the derision of the other commentators) was the only one to actually ask whose side Hogan was actually on. The line was unscripted, though, and earned him a reprimand from management for nearly giving the twist away.
*** According to Heenan's book, WCW boss Wrestling/EricBischoff imposed that kind of GenreBlindness on the announcers, since he wanted them to call the action as if it was a "shoot" (real.) Heenan said he told Bischoff that they'd never seen a shoot and that [[PretenderDiss if they saw one they wouldn't know it.]]

away. That said, according to Heenan's book, WCW boss Wrestling/EricBischoff imposed that kind of GenreBlindness on the announcers, since he wanted them to call the action as if it was a "shoot" (real.) (real). Heenan said he told Bischoff that they'd never seen a shoot and that [[PretenderDiss if they saw one they wouldn't know it.]]it]]. So it's very likely Heenan was relying on his character's hatred for Hogan to take him through that spot and trying to sound utterly obnoxious about it all the while so the inevitable Hogan save could make him look like the foolish heel again…and then Hogan dropped the leg and proved the bitter fool correct and he reacted accordingly.

** Of course those people missed the point that Bobby had always been portrayed as a Jerkass liar, so the kids would have no reason to believe him.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: At Wrestlemania V, former protege (turned face) Terry "The Red Rooster" Taylor squashed him in seconds, after Heenan charged a turnbuckle and fell down. A five minute match was planned, but Heenan did this improvised finished because The Warrior (legitimately) hurt him earlier and he didn't feel he could do the planned match.
** To this day, Bobby is one of The Warrior's biggest critics. He feels that he was hurt because The Warrior was careless, and didn't seem to care a whit that he truly hurt Bobby in the match.

* PetTheDog: The Brain's heart grew three sizes at ''[=WrestleMania VII=]'', when Wrestling/RandySavage accepted his defeat with grace and reunited with [[Wrestling/MissElizabeth Liz]]. Of course, he was back to his money-grubbing ways when the credits rolled, leading into his SchiffOneLiner.

He also (reluctantly) acknowledged that Hogan defeating American traitor SgtSlaughter to win the WWF championship later in the card was a victory for America. Of course, he was back to his money-grubbing ways when the credits rolled, leading into his SchiffOneLiner.

* BadSanta: Famously on the Christmas Day, 1989, episode of WWF ''Prime Time Wrestling'', where Heenan -- dressed as Santa -- openly mocked the tradition and declared there was no Santa, riling RoddyPiper up enough to get his ass kicked. The skit and the WWF were widely criticized for this episode, given that [[ThinkOfTheChildren many viewers in the audience were children who still believed in Santa]].
