Hulk Hogan and the WWE honored legendary announcer "Mean" Gene Okerlund on WWE Raw Monday night. Watch the tribute here.
There wasn't a dry eye in the house as I got together with my old pal since childhood Joe Mason to watch WWE Monday Night Raw on Jan. 7 as we prepared to see a tribute to another wrestling legend who had passed on. Being lifelong wrestling fans, it's always tough seeing our heroes pass on year after year, and for sure we have lost so many over the years. Hulk Hogan's return back to the WWE to honor his longtime friend was epic to say the least. The 5 minute tribute was done very well and with class. It brought tears to my eyes. WWE put together a great video highlight package as usual and you can see the video tribute below along with Hulk Hogan's tribute. R.I.P. Mean Gene Okerlund.
