When Andre the Giant went Heel on Hogan
The best part that Heenan portrayed was the heel part. He knew exactly what to do or say even without a script. When he took over to manage Andre The Giant, he executed that well. Andre at the time was with Hulk Hogan and thus played second best to Hogan. However, Heenan being The Brain he is, he changed all that. That is when Andre went heel on Hogan which resulted to one of the greatest matches of all times between Hogan and the Giant.
