Someone Bought This: He’s a manager?

WWF Superstars manager Mean Gene Oklerlund figure

Our friends at LJN seem to think that Mean Gene Oklerlund is a manager.

If I’m a wrestler, do I really want Gene Okerlund managing my career and giving me career advice and guidance?

“Gene, I have to face Hulk Hogan for the title tonight! You’re my manager so what’s the best strategy to avoid the leg drop and beat him?”

WCW Hotline Mean Gene Okerlund

“I can’t tell you here, but call the hotline at 1-900-RIP-U-OFF for the latest scoop! Just $9.99 a minute! Kids, get your parents’ permission before calling!”

“Yeah, thanks a load, Gene… I’m just going to go hit the rowing machine for awhile and re-evaluate my career choices”.

Anyway, why do they have Gene doing the “I don’t know” shrug?

Can anyone tell me?


You’re no help, dude.

By the way, is Gene the one who taught you to do that, Mr. Rock?

    Not sure why he’s doing the shrug, but what I REALLY want to know is what does that Mean Gene poster look like? Gimme that.

  2. Geoff says:

    He’s shrugging because either he knows what he is and he doesn’t know why they classified him as a manager either or he doesn’t know what is like LJN doesn’t know. Anyway, nothing he can do about it now… so ::shrugs::

    My parents bought me this figure along with Bobby Heenan and Mr. Fuji at my local Home Hardware store all in the same night (when they used to carry toys) at half-price. It was a good night.

    Well he managed to know how to always stay tight with The Hulkster and kept following him all over the place and getting jobs.

    Well Mean Gene did manage to get inducted here at the ‘crap a few times.
