Mean Gene Okerlund was a recent guest on CBS Sports’ In This Corner podcast to discuss his recent commercial with the actor, Kevin Hart. Below are some highlights of the interview with a H/T to Rajah.com for the transcription.
On his Mountain Dew commercial:
“Well it takes me back just about 30 years ago. I’ve been in this game for quite a while, matter of fact, [it’s] my 47th year. Mountain Dew’s Kickstart commercial and the opportunity to work with Kevin Hart, I knew it was gonna be a treat. And we had so much fun and time on the set, that we go to do back and forth banter that I found very entertaining. I knew this was coming because our good friend, The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, told me all about Kevin Hart and I was really looking forward to it. Everything that I expected.”
If Kevin Hart Has A Wrestling Foundation:
“I think he does. Very much, and candidly, he’s not afraid to let his hair down like, well let’s just say for instance, the ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, or a Ric Flair, or a Hulk Hogan, or a ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. Guys that you and I know very well from the past, they’re legends. And, all of a sudden, here comes Kevin Hart to the table, along with all he is doing in entertainment today, and working with the guy, for me, was a real, real pleasure.”
Finally, Okerlund was asked whether he thought Hulk Hogan would make a return to WWE in the future and his answer was simple and to the point, just stating “yes.” You can see Okerlund’s advert with Kevin Hart below.
