    "Mean" Gene Okerlund wasn't really very mean at all

    In fact I'd go so far as to call him quite lovely

    Okay, let's get down to serious business here... Chriza, I've noticed a new local burger chain called Frack. Been there? Any good? If so, what do you recommend??

    In his AWA days, Okerlund was given the nickname "Mean Gene" by Jesse "The Body" Ventura– an irony, considering that throughout the years many wrestlers and promotion staff considered Okerlund the friendliest person in the game.

    His name has been associated with fast food concept, Mean Gene's Burgers, the brainchild of food-distributor Orion Food Systems (headed by two of Okerlund's nephews), which appeared on college campuses including Duke University and his alma mater West Virginia University, as well as a chain of pizzerias located within bowling alleys, Mean Gene's Pizza. These are owned by Hot Stuff Foods, which was headed by two of his nephews. Early in 2006, Okerlund and Hot Stuff split. Okerlund and one of the nephews were planning to start their own food company on the brands, but Hot Stuff sued, claiming they had "Mean Gene" trademarked. Okerlund lost, with the judge saying that Okerlund can't use the name "Mean Gene" for his new food company. Okerlund succeeded in canceling the trademark registrations held by Orion, but remains enjoined from competing with Orion.

    There was a Mean Genes burger joint in Fresno, California built from the ground up, next time I drove by it was shuttered. Never got the chance to try I assume it was along the lines of a Rally's burger but I'll never know.
