Sad news to start the New Year with. WWE announced that Hall of Famer "Mean Gene" Okerlund has passed away at 76 years old.
Gene was a WWF / WWE / WCW / AWA staple for many years, interviewing all of the superstars over the years and giving us updates on what was happening in the world of professional wrestling.
I always loved seeing "Mean Gene" during WWE shows when I was growing up. He made every interview seem like the most important segment of the show, whether he was talking to Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Andre The Giant, Ric Flair or whomever that was on the mic with him.
Rest in Peace, Gene.
