One Of The Greats Has Left Us As Mean Gene Okerlund Passes

Even if you were not a huge wrestling fan in the 80's, chances are you knew the name "Mean" Gene Okerlund.  He was the man with incredible style, grace, and patience who's job was to interview the professional wrestlers.  We think Triple H said it best in a tweet when he said, "A voice and sound track to an entire era of our industry. He was the star of some of @WWE’s most memorable segments. “Mean Gene” was beloved by all who got to work with him."  That's a fact!  One of our favorites is when Mean Gene was preparing with Hulk Hogan for his first In Ring appearance.  This is why the man is a legend!

And who can forget this classic?  How the heck could he keep a straight face with Randy doing that stuff?

Or the amount of dick jokes and innuendo in this great clip with Rowdy Roddy Piper?
