Mean Gene Okerlund Reveals His Reaction To Hulk Hogan's WCW Heel Turn

Mean Gene Okerlund Reveals His Reaction To Hulk Hogan's WCW Heel Turn

WWE Hall OF Famer and former WWE ring announcer Mean Gene Okerlund recently spoke to Hannibal TV. One topic was about his reaction to seeing Hulk Hogan turn into a heel during WCW.

"I was thinking I was nuts. That crowd in Daytona Beach did not like to see that turn for Hulk Hogan. That turn gave legs to the NWO, which at that particular point in time exploded, and became the biggest thing in the wrestling scene, and took WCW up the ratings chart the next two years."

 For those curious about where you can find some of Okerlund's content, he suggested the WWE Network. He also revealed what he's up to nowadays.

"They can find me certainly on the WWE Network, I'm doing a couple of things there. Doing a lot of voice over work, which I enjoy. It takes a lot of the heat off of my hair and having to comb it everyday. For the most part I'm living the life I want to lead. Retirement for old people, forget about it."
