    3:30 - 4:13 . . . Kind of hard to believe that all of those former WWF stars that he named . . are dead. Hulk is like the last one left from that era.

  • Joel Rolle  (11 hours ago)

    And ric flair is still holding on well

  • Jason Logan  (Jan 10, 2019)

    My GOD....Hulk named all those names and it was almost the entire WWF roster from 80s and 90s. I know this isn't about me but my childhood memories are almost all gone.

  • BoBo Manny  (Mar 13, 2019)

    Hear you truly upsetting

  • David Holzer  (Feb 20, 2019)

    +arthur workman he really wasn't from that era and he's significantly younger than the others and you spelled shawn wrong

  • tdej80  (Jan 10, 2019)

    This was fitting. Hulk should be heart broken. Mean Gene was priceless in many interviews of Hulk and was one of Hogan's best hype men!

  • He was heart broken

  • VistaRecordsBoard  (Jan 14, 2019)

    Hulk did a great job of paying tribute to the man who was the very best at what he did. Mean Gene Okerlund set the bar when it comes to doing wrestler interviews, and no one since has ever been able to clear it. Gene has been missed for over 15 years as a regular part of wrestling broadcasting, and with him gone that just brings home how much he will be missed going forward. What's been missing from WWE for the last decade and a half? The kayfabe gravitas that Mean Gene brought to the promo spots. ...

    Anyone who can do a promo with Savage is a legend

  • IMStarbuck  (Jan 16, 2019)

    well said mate. short but beautiful eulogy. 10/10.

  • The Universe Galaxy  (Jan 11, 2019)

    Let me tell you something mean gene

  • The Great 100  (Feb 17, 2019)

    Mean Gene could have his pick from,Sensational Sherri , to Chyna

  • The Universe Galaxy he was always the greatest hulkamaniac

  • Vikashar  (Jan 8, 2019)

    He was the right person to do this. The only person.

  • Fritz Colburn  (Jan 8, 2019)

    +Vikashar Hulk put Vince/WWF over. He couldn't have done it without Mean Gene and Roddy Piper. That 3 way dance was a perfect storm. Gene was the the glue that held everything together. I'm so happy I was able to live through that era. A good portion of these commentors weren't even alive in that day and only know these things because of Wikipedia and occasional YouTube videos. I wish they could go back and experience it they way I did.

  • Colin DUFF  (Jan 10, 2019)

    Hulk Hogan is the reason that the WWE still exists. He was/is wrestling.

  • Demonic Shape  (Mar 10, 2019)

    Amen to that brother

  • 80sbabytothecore1  (Jan 10, 2019)

    Feels like I’m a kid growing up in the 80s all over again.

  • louie bernardo  (Feb 6, 2019)

    Me too brother..

  • Merritt Doyle  (Jan 24, 2019)

    I can remember Saturday mornings.

  • Thomas Muller  (Jan 10, 2019)

    I think WWE did the right thing by bringing Hulk Hogan back to honor his best friend. He & Mean Gene were so close together & I could only imagine how hard this is for Hulk Hogan right now. Most of his interviews were done by Mean Gene Okerlund. Just hearing him say "WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, MEAN GENE!" one more time just made most of my childhood comeback. Like I said, I truly believe that WWE did the right thing by bringing Hulk Hogan back to honor Mean Gene Okerlund.

  • ekjudo  (Jan 10, 2019)

    Just imagine when it Hulk Hogan's turn for the big send off. Talk about a national day of mourning.

  • Teddy Bear  (Mar 5, 2019)

    We don’t speak of this until it happens. No need for unnecessary depression
