R.I.P. to "Mean" Gene Okerlund

"Legendary professional wrestling announcer "Mean" Gene Okerlund, 76, has died. Okerlund set the bar high in the industry early in his career, being called a "measuring stick" for those following in his path. He was known for his over-the-top interviews with wrestling talent, as well as his close relationship with Hulk Hogan. "He was the interviewer to go to when you wanted him to talk to these talents … he was the guy that you wanted sticking the microphone in their face," said WWE analyst Justin Labar."
