    Following more than 30 years in sports-entertainment, Gene Okerlund became one of, if not the most recognizable announcers in the history of the squared circle. Nicknamed "Mean Gene" by longtime colleague and fellow Minnesotan Jesse Ventura, Okerlund began as a backstage interviewer in the Minneapolis-based AWA in the early 1970s.

    In his early days, Mean Gene was often seen interviewing some of the greatest stars in the AWA, including Bobby Heenan and his protégés and Hulk Hogan. In 1984, Mean Gene came to WWF as a locker room interviewer and announcer. He was one of the key ingredients to WCW Monday Nitro's success, and is a 2006 Hall of Fame inductee.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, give it up for Eugene Arthur "Mean Gene" Okerlund:

    When Mean Gene's Burger first opened Rick Steiner came for the grand opening. Food was pretty good, fucking greashy but what do you expect from a burger joint in a gas station

    It was a great fucking logo and almost surreal to see Mean Gene's face as you're cruising down the highway....
