RIP - Mean Gene Okerlund (Wrestling MC)

I've never been a big wrestling fan but did watch it occasionally back in the day. Mene Gene was good at what he did though.

1. NOOOOO!!!! 2019 is off to a bad start!

 

I remember how I was glued to the TV during the glory era of WWF.

RIP Mean Gene and prayers for the family.

2. I and my wife met him

At the Westchester County Center in White Plains NY many years ago, he was really one hell of a nice guy, he tried to get my wife to convince me to get into wrestling. LOL, We met Judge Pirro that same evening.

3. Damn. Gene was the best, along with Gordon Solie. None like them.

Hate to hear it.
