Countdown to meltdown–the worst pro wrestling interviews of all time: #5 “Mean” Gene Okerlund f*%#$ up

October 15th, 2010 2 comments

It’s always a little sad when a promo dies prematurely, especially on live TV. Unlike his unprofessional actions in the Ken Patera promo posted earlier (I still can’t believe that taped interview actually aired on TV) Gene Okerlund is at the top of his game in this clip from SummerSlam 1989, capable of handling any situation that may arise on PPV. In his defense, I know there have been plenty of times when I’ve started discussing the Ultimate Warrior and instead I just said, “Fuck it.” (Like the stellar broadcast journalist that he was in his WWF days, Jesse Ventura was thankfully there to cover for his broadcast colleague.)
