    I haven't paid attention to wrestling for the better part of 30 years, but Mean Gene was a Saturday and/or Sunday morning staple on the television, especially during his AWA days in the early to mid 80's.

    Gene has passed away at the age of 76.

    Oh man. :uh: One of the most iconic voices in wrestling ever and with a good, somewhat underappreciated, sense of humour. Thanks for the memories Gene. R.I.P.
