Rest in Peace Mean Gene

"Time, you old gipsy man,
Will you not stay,
Put up your caravan
Just for one day?"
But it doesn't. Time keeps moving and we lose people.
Today we lost a giant of the entertainment industry.
Today Mean Gene of AWA & WEE fame shuffled off this mortal coil.
Mr. Okerlund was the face of wrestling commentating. He did as much to bring professional wrestling out of obscurity as Hulk Hogan, Macho Man and the rest o0f the Vince McMahon's cavalcade of atomic drop, figure four, pile driving characters.
Rest in Peace up in the big turnbuckle in the sky
You will be missed.
Another part of youth slips away
