If you know me well, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that one of my idols is legendary wrestling manager/announcer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, who is not just one of the most entertaining figures in wrestling history, but one of the all-time best entertainers in ANY medium. I came across this obscure clip of a Hacksaw Jim Duggan match from WCW in 1996 where The Brain is doing commentary and just starts laughing uncontrollably for nearly five straight minutes after his announcing partner, Tony Schiavone, says that Duggan is a very intelligent man. I often find that watching people laugh uncontrollably can become infectious and cause you to start laughing uncontrollably for no good reason, and this clip is no exception. It’s very possible that Heenan was drunk when he did this, but that doesn’t make it any less funny.
