We received an update on legendary manager Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. Heenan underwent another reconstructive surgery to help his neck heal, and additional skin and tissue was transferred to his neck. Healing has been extremely slow because of the severe radiation in the past. Good news, the bone is still alive, set in place once again and he is looking more like "Bobby." Heenan will also undergo Physical rehab for walking and strength. We hear that Heenan is getting healthier in that he "wants out"....We wish Mr. Heenan nothing but the best, and pray for a speedy recovery
