-- In addition to George "The Animal" Steele (link), Jimmy Hart was also on Busted Open with Doug Mortman and Dave LaGreca, which airs Mondays and Wednesdays at 2-4 PM ET on Sirius 92 and XM 207. Hart talked about how the Poffo family is holding up and Savage's relationship with Hulk Hogan, you can check out excerpts below:
How the Poffo family is holding up in the wake of Randy's passing: "I think since three days since it happened, pretty darn good. Lanny's always been great. I think what they decided to do too, because I got so many calls from everybody wondering where the funeral is going to be…..I know you know it by now too, going to be cremated of course. His ashes are going to be spread on his property. Now, the reason I'm saying this, and its already out there anyhow….Lanny confirmed it too... where his dog Hercules passed away and was buried. I think just a little private deal is going to be for Randy's family, I don't think he wanted something very very big and that's kind of the way he was. When he did charities, he never went out there and told people about it or anything and I think donations are going to be sent in in his name are going to be in Tampa for one of the children's foundations here. I think they're doing pretty well for it just happening three or four days ago."
On the relationship between Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan: "I don't think it was as bad as sometimes people make it out to be because in the wrestling business, there's always a little angle right around the corner where people can work together and make a ton of money. I think it ended up pretty well. I think when Hulk was going in to the hospital for one of his operations with his back, Randy happened to be at the same place. He stepped in to the room, said hello to Hulk and everything else. At the end, everything was pretty well being put back together again. Sometimes people make more of it than what it really is sometimes but being on this end and hearing a little bit of the scuttlebutt here and there, it was almost like a big wrestling angle. Randy was great, there will only be one Macho Man ever ever, colorful and did some great things nobody ever really knew about because he was so private."
