Aw man, Gene Mean (as the Iron Shiek called him) was the best!

He used to host a Saturday afternoon show on USA network. It was usually a recap of the week's matches, but he threw in some corny jokes and bits to stir things up a little. He used to have a segment where he'd call a female celebrity and pretend to have an intimate conversation with her, then act like he didn't realize he was on the air. "Yes Tammy Faye, I do like the black hose. Oh yes, the red garter belt is nice too. You know what I really like? Oh! (looks at camera) You didn't hear any of that did you? (to phone) Call you back."

RIP Gene Okerlund
