Legendary pro wrestling announcer “Mean Gene” Okerlund made a career out of playing the straight man to the over the top characters of the WWF/WWE and WCW. Inevitably the ridiculousness of some of these situations made it tough to keep a straight face. Here are five video clips of Mean Gene laughing during an interview.
1. Dave “The Redneck” Schultz tell Mean Gene about trying to find a woman in San Francisco: “I wanted a woman! I couldn’t find a woman! I found a lot of men that looked like women!”
2. Wendi Richter: “I’m not about to lie down on my back and let someone cover me!”
3. Ken Patera compares the beating he took from the Heenan Family to being whipped like both a “dirty yard dog” and a “red headed stepson” and he’s “sick and tired of this type of treatment!”
