Lanny Poffo on his discussion with Randy Savage about the hall of fame



Slam Wrestling has a Q&A with Lanny Poffo. On whether he and his brother ever discussed WWE’s Hall of Fame: “Yes, we talked about it. As a matter of fact, remember when the Von Erichs got into the Hall of Fame? That was the first time he’d mentioned it, and my father was still alive. We celebrated his birthday, and at this point my father was coherent. He says, ‘The Von Erichs are in the Hall of Fame? I’m not going in, ever, into the Hall of Fame unless it’s the Poffos, Lanny, Randy and Angelo.’ That’s what he said. We didn’t cremate him against his wishes and we’re not going to go into the Hall of Fame against his wishes either.”

    it’s sad buy randy is the only 1 that should be in not lenny or his dad

  2. Tim Zyla says:

    Why is that sad? You are just speaking the truth….Just because one person in the family is huge doesn’t mean the whole family goes in.

  3. David K says:

    I can personally see the Poffos in the HOF. While Randy & Angelo was true top notch talent, but Lanny wasn’t a slouch in the ring. If Pete Rose & Drew Carey can be in the HOF, why can the Poffos? They have done more for the business than Rose or Carey ever did.

  4. Wut? says:

    Angelo Poffo is a legend in his own right. Huge territorial draw, and without him, Randy would have gone nowhere.

  5. James says:

    I believe it’s noble for Randy to share his fame with his family. Besides, they also started the first promotion that was not affiliated with either NWA, AWA, or WWE.

  6. David K says:

    The ICW, not a national promotion like the above three, but at one time was a threat to Jerry Jarret & Gulus (sp) promotion. Without Angelo Poffo & the ICW, Savage, Lanny P, One Man Gang, Ronnie Garvin cut their teeth in the promotion

  7. -Jay- says:

    They all belong in there, the genius maybe not so much but Randy and his dad sure overdue. RIP Macho.
