Possible Spoiler On Another WWE Hall Of Famer Appearing On Raw

Hogan and Okerlund stayed with WWF until 1993, when Okerlund switched over to the rival World Championship Wrestling (WCW), with Hogan defecting a year later. While there is no word on what The Nature Boy will be doing on the show, it's heavily anticipated that he will be a part of the tribute to Mean Gene.

Scott Stanford recently appeared on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast to talk about the passing of the late great WWE Hall of Famer "Mean" Gene Okerlund and his impact on the wrestling business. The Nature Boy first met the legendary announcer in 1972 and remained close to him right up until his death. They described Okerlund as "a cornerstone of Hulkamania" in the 1980s.

Flair actually spoke to Sports Illustrated about Okerlund last week, saying: "Friend would be too generic a term for us. If I was going somewhere, and I knew Gene Okerlund was there, I made sure I found him". Scott is no stranger to Mean Gene having worked with him in WWE television production as well as being a long time fan of Gene's work during the golden era of professional wrestling.

A number of years ago, Hogan was suspended from the WWE Hall of Fame as a result of racist and hateful comments made towards black people. It's hard to explain how much talent he had.

"He was a wonderful person, he loved his kids, he loved his wife, and he loved what he did for a living", said Flair.

"I've been so depressed all day thinking about it. There will never, ever be another Gene Okerlund".
