    Mean Gene by far. He usually kept his composure, minus a couple of times (SummerSlam 89 and when Ken Patera was talking come to mind) and helped make you interested in what the interviewee was saying, asking the right questions.

    Mean Gene, Hands Down!

    It’s Mene Gene. That’s why he’s the only one in the Hall of Fame. I do have to say though, I am indeed a fan of Rene Young, or as she was known at the Score Rene Paquette. She’s very good looking, and I think she has a great personality and a great presence on screen. So far, I think she’s been great! (Boy, that’s a lot greats)

    It’s Mean Gene. No one will ever come close.

    Gene is THE best his interviews with warrior, hogan, jake roberts etc. ar still in my mind to this day…second would be coach his interviews with rock are still classic.

    Mean Gene

    Mean Gene. He had just the right ammount of charisma for the position and natural chemistry with those who speak well, heel or face. Gene always came across as naturally excited about whatever/whomever he was discussing. Bums me out there aren’t many guys like him backstage interviewing or like the Heenan/Monsoon commentating tandum anymore

    Let me tell you something Mean Gene!

  11. Cas says:

    Gene is an icon for sure. Far ahead of any other. I’m going to throw in coach, he was willing to go that extra mile of embarrassment and his work with rock was classic

  12. Marlon says:

    How vital are backstage interviews, they used to make or break a star in my opinion. One of my fav parts of wrestling. Gene for the win! Thanks for taking my suggestion! Am I over with the IWC?

  13. Guled says:

    Rene Paquette. she’s freakin’ hot

  14. Simba says:

    Rebecca DiPietro… I am still haunted by her attempt at an ‘interview’ with Bobby Lashley.
