Sucks though. One of the funniest guys I've ever met. He told me next time I came back to bring something cold and wet and he didn't mean water.

This makes me sad. One of my all time favorites. I mentioned a few months ago that my wife’s boss was friends with him so at some point I planned on meeting him...guess that card was subject to change.

Had to look into that story. According to Jerry Lawler, Fink had a stroke and wasn’t doing so well. That was from a podcast in July. Fink’s last tweet was in April of 2018. Despite looking as though he has never aged, Fink is 68 years old and has been working for the WWE for 38 of them.

Daddy is coming home:

Quote:Hulk Hogan returns to Raw to celebrate the life of longtime friend “Mean” Gene Okerlund
"Mean" Gene Okerlund and Hulk Hogan

“Let me tell you something, ‘Mean’ Gene …”

So began many of Hulk Hogan’s most memorable proclamations, making interviewer and backstage personality “Mean” Gene Okerlund a cornerstone of Hulkamania in the 1980s. Now, in the wake of Okerlund’s recent passing, Hogan returns to WWE programming this Monday night on Raw to honor his longtime friend.

In a Twitter post Tuesday night, Hogan called “Mean” Gene “the best partner I ever had” while describing their incredible off-the-cuff chemistry during their backstage interviews. That synchronicity even led to an unusual tag team partnership when Hogan and Okerlund battled George “The Animal” Steele and Mr. Fuji in 1984. Their training sessions before that match, which can be seen below, were perhaps even more entertaining than the bout itself.

Hogan and Okerlund’s friendship spanned the decades, from WWE to WCW and back to WWE. On Monday night, Hogan honors his brother.

Don’t miss this milestone moment on Monday Night Raw, beginning at 8/7 C on USA Network.

I'm now fully convinced that Vinnie Mac had Mean Gene murdered as part of his plot to get Hogan back on TV.

Win the Day!
