WWE Star "Mean Gene" Okerlund Dead at 76
Gene Okerlund, the legendary wrestling interviewer dubbed "Mean Jean" by Jesse Ventura, has died. He was 76 years old.

Okerlund started his career as a reporter for the AWA, where he first crossed paths with Ventura and other up-and-comers like Hulk Hogan. In 1984, Okerlund started his career with the WWE (which, as you'll likely remember, was still called the WWF at the time). 

Okerlund worked with the WCW for eight years, but returned to the WWE in 2001 where he stayed for the rest of his career. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006.
