If you were a wrestling fan from almost any generation, WWE Legend Gene Okerlund’s voice was unmistakable. Okerlund brought so much class and respectability to the mic as wrestling’s number one interviewer.
Sadly, it has been revealed Okerlund has passed away at the age of 76. WWE released a statement via Twitter this morning:
“Mean” Gene Okerlund is most famous for his interviews with wrestling icons such as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and Andre The Giant. Rest In Peace Mean Gene, the squared circle won’t be the same without you.
