SHOW SUMMARY: PWTorch editor Wade Keller presents a double-header this week on “Interview Friday” focused on Bobby “The Brain” Heenan featuring both Mick Karch and Sean Mooney. Karch, an AWA announcer on ESPN in the mid-1980s and longtime independent announcer was also the president of the Nick Bockwinkel Fan Club during Heenan’s peak years as a manager in the AWA. Karch puts in perspective Heenan’s evolution as a manager during his 15 year run in the AWA from 1969 to 1984. Is Heenan the MVP of the AWA during those years? Which wrestlers was he most effectively paired with? What made him so successful at drawing money and not just “entertaining” fans? Then Sean Mooney talks in-depth about Heenan’s WWF years including his personal interactions with him on Prime Time Wrestling with Gorilla Monsoon and interviewing him as he managed challengers to Hulk Hogan.
