Great wrestling magazine covers: Bloody Bobby Heenan and a mad rapist

New, comments

We start with what many consider the greatest, most memorable cover in the long history wrestling magazines.

It's perfect in every way:

  • The bloody Bobby Heenan photo, a staple of magazine covers during the period.
  • The headline accompanying said photo, which is funny and instantly memorable.
  • "RAPIST INVADES GIRL'S DRESSING ROOM!"
  • The usual "'Loud statement!' says insert famous wrestler here" headline that seemed to be in every magazine back then.
  • "...HER BRUTAL BAPTISM BY FIRE!"

If you were a fan when this magazine came out, you'd surely buy it to find out the answer to the question "MY GOD, BOBBY! WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE?"
