R.I.P. Mean Gene

Well, this was not what I was expecting to be the first post of 2019, but what can you do?

For kids of my generation he was THE interviewer. So iconic he’s been parodied in too many ways to count.

I never saw him break when Macho Man or Ultimate Warrior went on one of their rants.

He didn’t even blink when Booker T called Hulk Hogan a n—a on live television.

But this got him.

Rest in Peace, Mean Gene Okerlund. A giant in your field.
