Lanny Poffo, the brother to the late “Macho Man” Randy Savage, recently spoke to PWTorch about his brother being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“I gave them permission to do it without my permission. Just don’t invite me and don’t pay me. I don’t need their 30 pieces of silver to defy my brother’s wishes. Kayfabe Commentaries had my best interview regarding the reasons Randy had for this position.”

Poffo noted that his brother’s wishes were for Randy, Lanny, and his father Angelo Poffo, to all be inducted as a family into the WWE Hall of Fame.

    angelo poffo I might understand being inducted, but Lanny ? He’s a bottom feeder, if it wasn’t for savage, nobody would know who the hell he is. besides, why doesn’t he show proof of his brother’s last wishes ??

    “I gave them permission to do it without my permission. Just don’t
    invite me and don’t pay me. I don’t need their 30 pieces of silver to
    defy my brother’s wishes.” Very strange…so he allows it to happen and for free.

      It is a very strange thing from someone once called The Genius!

    The WWE should’ve inducted the 3 of them while Randy Savage was still alive. Now, what for? All they did was manage to piss off a REAL superstar (Basically telling him to go to hell), as well as his family. OK. So Angelo and Lanny weren’t all that. Neither were Koko B Ware, Bob Orton Jr (Who was known for being Roddy Pipers bodyguard at best), and a Greg Valentine (An ok wrestler, but not a hall of famer). It isn’t that big a deal to induct his family in the Hall of Fame. Hey, they put all the Von Erichs in the Hall, but Chris and Mike were totally worthless. At least Lanny Poffo had semi-entertaining gimmicks and some skill. I know he wasn’t a superstar, but he did more than certain guys. And besides, Randy Savage was a big reason for the WWE’s success during the late 80s-early 90s. WWE, you should’ve given this man his bone.

    i’d take the genius in the HOF as long as randy gets in. He deserves to be the only inductee in whatever class he’s a part of.
