'Mean' Gene Okerlund

Legendary American professional wrestling announcer and interviewer who worked from 1970 to 2018. We watched a great deal of him growing up -- his friendly and focused demeanor kept him sailing along through whatever insane antics the athlete/entertainers staged as he tried to get on with the show, and his staccato, trumpet-like Midwestern voice cut through the murk. Via Deadline.
