He also portrayed the on-screen role of WWF President from 1995 to 1997. In professional wrestling, the staging area just behind the entrance curtain at an event, a position which Marella established and where he could often be found during WWF shows late in his career, is named the "Gorilla Position" in his honor. Monsoon is remembered fondly by many viewers; according to Rolling Stone, he and longtime announcing partner Bobby Heenan "are regarded as the greatest color-commentary team in pro-wrestling history". Despite this, Monsoon was voted Worst Television Announcer a record six times by readers of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in the publication's annual awards poll.
