I’ve been a wrestling fan since 8 at least.
I started with ITV stuff with Big Daddy, Kendo Nagasaki et al ..
However, the game changer was seeing WWF (As it was) on Sky
The voice of reason in those chaotic days was Mean Gene – the presenter who made sense of what was going on. Who could interview anyone and get the story.
He later did the same in WCW and elsewhere, but WWF was where he made his name for me (No AWA in the UK for me ) …
From everything I hear on podcasts he was a personality who kept giving, and for me was a star of sanity in a world of super powered chaos – Mean Gene, you will be missed.
