I couldn’t find what year this 45 came out, but I’d have to think that this had to be around 1960, considering the length of the song (clocking in at a robust 1 minute and 40 seconds) and the instrumentation used. (A heavy usage of guitars in pop songs was typical in that era.)
Gene Carroll was the pop moniker for a young man named Eugene Okerlund, better known to many wrestling fans of the previous few decades as “Mean Gene”Okerlund. Over a career that has lasted in the squared circle for five decades, Gene’s role was to interview the grapplers, aiding them in delivering their promotional material for upcoming matches.
If you’ve never seen “Legends House” on the WWE Network as I did last year, give it a try. Gave a new dimension and perspective to a few of the all-time greats, some of it humorous, some of it very serious which gave these guys (including Gene) a sense of humanity.
