Mean Gene Okerlund Dead At 76

That's very sad. But he had bad health problems since the 90s with kidney failure, so he's lucky he made it to 76. But he was the best in the business. Nobody else got how to get an interview over like Gene.

Very sad news. Gene said on Legends House his wife gave him one of her kidneys. He was definitely the best interviewer. I think he added that extra prestige too and when he went to WCW the WWF didn't have anyone who could replace him. Sad to hear he's passed, RIP Gene :(

I always liked Mean Gene. He was someone who was always there when I used to watch old WWF tapes my dad would rent from the video store back in the 80s/early 90s.

This is sad indeed :(

It seems Gene died from pneumonia that he contracted after breaking his ribs in a fall.
