Hulk Hogan Pays Tribute to "Mean" Gene | Bonehead Picks

Hulk Hogan Returns to WWE Programming, Pays Tribute to “Mean” Gene

  • Pin It

Hulk Hogan may not be welcomed back with open arms by some in the WWE Universe, but his return to WWE television to honor his friend “Mean” Gene Okerlund was the best decision WWE could have made.

Hogan’s tribute to Okerlund was straight from the heart and so well done. Hogan got the crowd going when he made his signature entrance, but his quick transition from Hulkamania to “Mean Gene-O-Mania” as he raised his sunglasses brought the crowd in with him for this moment.

His words were touching and to the point. This tribute was for everyone in the crowd and watching at home to FEEL what so many who worked with Mean Gene for all of those years feel. It also gave us perspective on how many legends have passed on as Hogan brought up the likes of Roddy Piper and Macho Man Randy Savage in his tribute.

Whether you agree with Hogan coming back or not, the decision for Hogan to be the one to conduct this tribute was the correct one.

There is,was and never will be another individual like “Mean” Gene Okerlund.
