Gene Okerlund Trivia, Braun Strowman Has Bone To Pick With Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman
- As noted, Braun Strowman and WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be on tonight's RAW to promote their Royal Rumble title match. Strowman took to Twitter today and said he has a bone to pick with The Beast and his advocate, Paul Heyman.

Braun wrote, "The Monsters back for the first episode of #Raw for 2019!!!! Heard @BrockLesnar is gonna be there. I've got a bone to pick with him and his Ratvocate @HeymanHustle"

- In a bit of trivia on WWE Hall of Famer "Mean" Gene Okerlund, the WWE Stats page noted that Gene is the only Hall of Famer in history to compete in his first televised WWE match after he was inducted. Gene was inducted in 2006 and then made his official WWE in-ring debut on SmackDown in 2012, teaming with current SmackDown Tag Team Champion Sheamus to defeat Alberto Del Rio and current WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.

Okerlund did with mix it up with other Hall of Famers back in 1984 when he teamed with Hulk Hogan to defeat Mr. Fuji and George "The Animal" Steele but WWE did not count it as a televised match for his in-ring record because it was not shown on TV in its entirety when it originally happened. As noted, Hogan will be on RAW tonight to pay tribute to Gene, who passed away at the age of 76 this past Wednesday.
