Mean Gene Okerlund Speaker Profile
Mean Gene Okerlund was born November 29, 1942 and is a semi-retired American professional wrestling interviewer and announcer. He is perhaps best known for his work in the American Wrestling Association, World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 by Hulk Hogan. He is currently signed to lifetime employment with the WWE and works for promotional programs mostly for television shows on WWE Classics On Demand and occasionally makes special appearances.
Okerlund then returned to WWF (renamed WWE in 2002), as his first post-WCW assignment for the company was as a commentator for the Gimmick Battle Royal during WrestleMania X-Seven on April 1 2001, along with Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. He would go on to host WWE Confidential in 2002, which lasted for two years. Today, Okerlund still makes occasional WWE appearances.
Gene also hosts WWE Madison Square Garden Classics, a weekly series, airing on the MSG Network, featuring classic WWE matches that took place at Madison Square Garden from the last four decades. He also is the host for the WWE Classics On Demand Hall of Fame section, which takes a look at a different WWE Hall of Famer each month.
Okerlund was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 1, 2006 in Chicago, Illinois. During his Hall of Fame acceptance speech, he quoted a Bobby Knight speech and requested to be buried face down upon his death so his critics can "Kiss my ass".
In June 2008, Okerlund began hosting WWE Vintage Collection, a program which showcases archive footage from the extensive WWE video library.
On April 4, 2009, the night before the 25th anniversary of WrestleMania, Okerlund inducted longtime WWE ring announcer Howard Finkel into the WWE Hall of Fame.
