Eugene Arthur Okerlund, also known by his ring name "Mean" Gene Okerlund, is a semi-retired professional wrestling interviewer, announcer, and wrestler. He is best known for his work in the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 by Hulk Hogan. He is currently signed to a lifetime contract with WWE and works for promotional programs, mostly WWE Network programming and occasionally TV. He is the co-host of Vintage Collection.

Okerlund left the radio industry for a position at the American Wrestling Association (AWA) in the early 1970s, where he occasionally filled in for ailing ring announcer and interviewer Marty O'Neill, eventually becoming O'Neill's permanent replacement by the end of the decade.

He would stay with the AWA until the end of 1983, when he was one of many AWA personnel to join the expanding World Wrestling Federation (WWF). He would stay with the WWF for nine years as their top interviewer, and was host of such WWF shows as All-American Wrestling and Tuesday Night Titans.
