Funny: Bobby Heenan
  • His commentary of the 1992 Royal Rumble, particularly the moment when "Rowdy" Roddy Piper helps Ric Flair, but turns on Flair once again.
    Heenan: I never thought I'd say this, but thank you, Roddy! It's a kilt! It's not a skirt, it's a kilt! [Piper attacks Flair] You no-good creep! You skirt-wearing freak! It's not a kilt, IT'S A SKIRT!
    • Tying into both entries above: WWE recognized that this was probably the strongest performance of Heenan's career as a commentator - and included the entire Rumble match on the DVD set dedicated to him.
  • During WrestleMania VIII after Randy Savage had defeated WWE World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair for the title, Heenan comes back to the announce booth during the following match and has a Villainous Breakdown that is worth watching the Tatanka vs Rick Martel (the match that followed it) dozens of times to watch him meltdown after losing his meal ticket.
  • During a Scott Steiner promo, Steiner says he has the crowd "mesmermized" by his perfect body. Without missing a beat, Heenan says "Tony, he's got them all mesmermized!"
  • A lesser known, but no less funny, incident was when Tony Schiavone put over "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan as being "a very intelligent man." Bobby's response? To laugh. And laugh. And laugh. For the rest of the match.
  • This Primetime Wrestling segment, where Bobby Heenan and Vince McMahon are given an embalming lesson courtesy of Paul Bearer. Paul's funny enough on his own, but it's Bobby's reactions to the situation that really make the video.
  • During a match between Scott Steiner and Scott Norton, two huge men, Heenan referenced chants of "STEROIDS!" by quietly quipping "I've never seen the crowd so pumped up!"
  • After making derogatory comments about The Undertaker and Paul Bearer on Primetime Wrestling, Bobby is forced to eat crow the following week when the duo actually show up on set.
  • Bobby Heenan vs Telephone. Telephone wins.
  • Heenan's line during The Undertaker's and Paul Bearer's entrance.
  • Pick any one of his skits that he did on Prime Time Wrestling with Gorilla Monsoon. Any of them.
    • Heck, pick anytime the two interacted on TV or the announce booth, if they didn't say or do anything during the show that made you laugh or smile at least once, something must've been wrong.
  • WCW Thunder, sometime in 1998. The crowd is chanting "Hogan sucks! Hogan sucks!," and Brain asked, "What are they saying, Hogan plays for the Sox?"
  • Pretty much any time he's on screen in the DVD The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior. The man is not a fan.
  • In re Hulk Hogan's "A Real American" theme:
    BRAIN: "That's my second favorite song."
    GORILLA: "I'm almost afraid to ask. What's your favorite?"
    BRAIN: "All the rest are tied."
  • (At WCW Uncensored 1995, as Dustin Rhodes and the Blacktop Bully [Barry Darsow]]'s truck passes a farmland):
    Brain: "There's the downtown area of Tupelo. Did you see the skyscrapers? Two stories."
  • Heenan dropping the F-Bomb on Brian Pillman here. That is all.
  • During the Wrestlemania IX match between Bret Hart and Yokozuna, the fans start chanting "USA!".
    Heenan: Listen to how smart these people are, one guy's from Canada and the other one's from Japan.
