Bobby Heenan's Survivor Series Picks
Bobby "The Brain" Heenan makes his Survivor Series picks
Nov. 22, 2005
As a manager, wrestler, and WWE commentator, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan has been a part of several Survivor Series. This week, WWE.com caught up with "The Brain" to get his thoughts on this year's version of the November classic. Never one to disappoint an audience, Heenan was more than happy to share his opinion.
Eric Bischoff vs. Theodore Long
Heenan's Prediction: Theodore Long
"Teddy Long. He's a man. That's it."
John Cena vs. Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship
Heenan's Prediction: Kurt Angle
"I'll go with Kurt Angle. Angle's a wrestler, and a damn tough guy on an incredible run. He still hasn't even reached his peak yet. Meanwhile, with all the chains and things he wears around his neck, Cena looks like he's been jacking hubcaps off some old lady's Saturn. He needs to get some tapes and really study Kurt Angle, or else he's going to have to feed his family off of the money he makes from those hubcaps."
Ric Flair vs. Triple H in a Last Man Standing Match
Heenan's Prediction: Ric Flair
"Triple H has everything it takes to be the champion: style, charisma, ability, and the body. He's the closest out there to being the next Ric Flair. But I'll tell you what, I've been to 14 countries and 50 states with Ric Flair, and when he goes out to the bars and they make the last call, he's always the Last Man Standing. Period."
Team RAW vs. Team SmackDown, 5-on-5 Classic Survivor Series Match
Heenan's Prediction: Team SmackDown
"You know, the secret to this match may just be Rey Mysterio. You've got all this big, powerful guys in there, and he's quicker then all of them. You get him in there with Big Show, and he'll drive him crazy. The only way an elephant catches a mouse is with his trunk, and I don't think Rey is slower than a mouse. Of course, I know who Rey really is, he's Howard Finkel's illegitimate child. Anyway, I used to tell my guys that when they were in these matches they should stand back, let the other guys beat each other up, and then get involved once they could do some damage. Rey can do that, so I'm going with Team SmackDown."
Trish Stratus vs. Melina for the Women's Championship
Heenan's Predicition: Trish Stratus
"Trish Stratus vs. Melina? Sounds like a kidney disease or something. You know, I'm always interested in watching their bodies flying around the ring, sometimes more than the actually wrestling, you know what I mean? I'll say Trish."
