178 | RIP “Mean” Gene Okerlund, All Elite Wrestling | 01/02/19

Vaughn Johnson (@VaughnMJohnson) and Nick Piccone (@nickpiccone) celebrate the life of one of, if not the, greatest interviewers in the history of professional wrestling, "Mean" Gene Okerlund. Okerlund passed away on January 2, 2019.
Listen as Vaughn and Nick talk about their memories of Okerlund, favorite moments, and what exactly he meant to the industry of professional wrestling.
Then, the guys shift to All Elite Wrestling and discuss the venture. What is a realistic goal for the new company? Will they ever compete with WWE? Will they get a good television deal. All this and more questions answered on this week's edition of the pod.
