• Hulk Hogan Returning To RAW Next Week, Role Revealed
WWE Hall Of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan will return to WWE programming on next week’s episode of RAW to honor his late friend and fellow WWE Hall of Famer “Mean” Gene Okerlund.
Below is what WWE posted regarding this:
Hulk Hogan returns to Raw to celebrate the life of longtime friend “Mean” Gene Okerlund
““Let me tell you something, ‘Mean’ Gene …”
So began many of Hulk Hogan’s most memorable proclamations, making interviewer and backstage personality “Mean” Gene Okerlund a cornerstone of Hulkamania in the 1980s. Now, in the wake of Okerlund’s recent passing, Hogan returns to WWE programming this Monday night on Raw to honor his longtime friend.
In a Twitter post Tuesday night, Hogan called “Mean” Gene “the best partner I ever had” while describing their incredible off-the-cuff chemistry during their backstage interviews. That synchronicity even led to an unusual tag team partnership when Hogan and Okerlund battled George “The Animal” Steele and Mr. Fuji in 1984. Their training sessions before that match, which can be seen below, were perhaps even more entertaining than the bout itself.
Hogan and Okerlund’s friendship spanned the decades, from WWE to WCW and back to WWE. On Monday night, Hogan honors his brother.
Don’t miss this milestone moment on Monday Night Raw, beginning at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
