Mean Gene Okerlund passed away today. If you are about my age and also grew up thinking “professional wrestler” was a possible career opportunity, then Mean Gene was a part of your life. (Would I make PWI’s “most popular” list or “most hated?” Is Southern Tag Team title too low a goal? Questions I may have asked myself in 1987.)
Some how or another, I found the below clip of Mean Gene training with Hulk Hogan. It has nada to do with anything, but still – it’s the Hulkster getting Mean Gene going for a 5:00 am workout:
I don’t even know if the clip works.
In any event, keep the new year going in the right direction and hit The O with me Thursday morning for a core-focused workout. Nothing fancy; nothing too stupid. I’ve no idea how to incorporate Mean Gene. But, maybe we can discuss wrasslin’ memories if not out of breath.
