Twitter Give A Tribute To The Legendary Mean Gene Okerlund Who Passed Away Today
Just heard Mean Gene Okerlund has passed away. As an interviewer, pitch man, announcer, or host, he was untouchable. Simply the best. Total professional with quick wit, sarcasm, humor, and that golden voice.
Condolences to his friends and family.

Damn! “Super Dave” and “Mean Gene” both pass away today. Both at the age of 76. Bad way to start out the new year. pic.twitter.com/TNBmKdWAQU

I consider a good “pro-wrestler” somebody who can cover all the elements…from cameras to commentary. Gene Okerlund was a MASTER of knowing and executing everything he did so as to make the story clear for us. He put a voice to many of our childhoods. He will be sorely missed. pic.twitter.com/YmKr1bqyd8
