• Hulk Hogan Gets Emotional While Paying His Awesome Tribute To “Mean” Gene Okerlund On RAW
After the first match on tonight’s RAW was over, WWE did a 10 bell salute for “Mean” Gene Okerlund.
WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan then made his return to a big pop! Hogan is wearing the “Mean Gene – O – Mania” shirt.
Hogan’s music stops and a big “Hogan” chant erupts! Hogan begins with “Let me tell you something, brother!”.
Hogan says he came out in character tonight because that’s what Mean Gene would have wanted because Mean Gene loved entertaining more than anything else he did.
We then got a video footage of Mean Gene’s greatest moments. We get a very awesome tribute video and Hogan says “We love you, brother”.
Hogan says Mean Gene might not be here, but he’s right there in his heart. Hogan is getting super emotional and a “Thank You Mean Gene” chant begins.
Hogan then cut an awesome promo as if he was getting interviewed by Mean Gene!
You can watch it below:
Hogan does the “mic drop” after his epic promo and the segment ends with the crowd being happy.
