Mean Gene Okerlund on Savage/Hall of Fame, Warrior

Matt Stone sent this in.

This past Thursday, WWE Hall of Famer, Mean Gene Okerlund joined Inside The Ropes radio show and here are the highlights……

On how pay per views have changed in WWE: I personally think we have way too many pay per views. I don’t think we get the chance to adequately develop the storylines with the guys and gals between pay per views. I’d like to see us down to about 8 pay per views a year.

On Randy Savage not being in the HOF: Are you telling me that the WWE hadn’t made an overture to Randy about being in the Hall of Fame? That’s BS. They asked him many times and he declined. For whatever reason, that’s what I’m still trying to figure out.

Memories on The Warrior: He did have a look, that’s about as far as it goes. He couldn’t talk, he sure as hell couldn’t work in the ring, that was very marginal. I think one of the worst matches I’ve seen in my life was between Warrior and Papa Shango. What a disaster of monumental proportions.
