Let Me Tell You Something, Brother, This Collection Of ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund Outtakes Is Funny As Hell
In January 2019, the wrestling world lost an absolute legend with the passing of “Mean” Gene Okerlund.
Okerlund was just as significant a presence in the WWF/WWE, and then WCW, as the men he interviewed.
Okerlund was a larger-than-life personality on and off camera, and as this collection of outtakes proves, the man was hilarious, able to ad-lib, and probably made these tedious and boring local segments way more fun.
Add Bobby “The Brain” Heenan to the mix and the train goes off the tracks quickly.
After getting a hearty chuckle from those outtakes, check out these “Mean” Gene quips, puns and one-liners that were a little too hot for TV.
