Lanny Poffo Speaks Out On Randy Savage's Death & More
Hillbilly says what times they were to where they were magical, says that they were those guys that were so lucky to be woven into the fabric of America & says it's because they came there at the right time when WWF was hoping. He says Lanny was with him then & said they had a good ride, Lanny says it's been a blessing for him & says he don't regret a minute of it. Hillbilly says that sat in many places & talked in restaurants in places like Newfoundland about both of them wouldn't have a reason or afford to be in these places. He says they can go worldwide, performed in front of millions, says that people liked them & asks as to how much better could it have gotten.
Lanny says he always knew that if anyone remembers his name it's because of Angelo & Randy & says that was his blessing. Hillbilly says Lanny's very kind, says that he could do things in the ring that most people couldn't think about & says with his flexibility he could stand on his won. He says that's tough shoes, says that Lanny's the best guy that he's met who can handle that shadow as good as anyone & says he held his head up with distinction. He says it proves the merit of the man that Lanny is, calls Lanny his lifetime buddy & says Lanny knows it. Lanny thanks him, agrees that they're friends forever & says 1 time he shared a room with David Sammartino: http://tinyurl.com/3z8laqx .
Lanny says it's when David told him that his father [Bruno Sammartino]: http://tinyurl.com/5l3byy ruined his career & Randy's ruining Lanny's career. So Lanny's response was that he called David "stupid", then said that he told David that if his dad wasn't Bruno Sammartino & if his brother wasn't Randy, both he & David couldn't get a job carrying the jackets back from the ring to the dressing room & told David, "shame on you". Hillbilly says that Lanny's attitude was always the 1 thing that's always been unwavering, says that Lanny always had positivity in everything he ever said & says it's why he & Lanny get along famously.
Hillbilly says both had great laughs forever, then asks Lanny if there's an organization that Randy would've want fans to send donations to. Lanny mentions All Childrens Hospital: www.allkids.org & George Steinbrenner Fund For Underprivileged
Children & says Randy worked with them for 13 years. He says when his dad died 3/4/2010 Randy went into a deep depression to where he asked Lanny to come to his home that was about 5 miles away. He says both talked to where Randy told him that 1 of the biggest regrets in his life was when he took Stephanie Bellars [Randy's ex-girlfriend]: http://tinyurl.com/3jytz97 & gave her the Gorgeous George name.
Lanny says the original Gorgeous George Wagner: http://tinyurl.com/44cbxsr who was TV's 1st wrestling star was the Hulk Hogan of his day. He says Randy felt that he trashed George's name by giving the name to anyone but Wagner & especially to gender bending girls. He says George was 10 years older then Angelo & when Angelo was just starting out, George encouraged him by helping him a lot. He says lots of stars won't do that for jabronies, says that Angelo was a star because of George & then plays what he says is the last soundbyte of Randy did. He says the quality may sound poor but hopes it's still good enough.
As Lanny plays it the quality wasn't great but from what I tried to hear, it sounded like a Gorgeous George promo of sorts. Lanny plugs www.machoman.com to where it takes you to www.gorgeousgeorgeenterprises.com , then says 1 day before he died Randy was online & had everything ready for Amazon.com. He says Randy invited him for a toast by thanking him for all of his hard work on the project, says that Randy's "type A" personality drove everyone crazy & says he was at Randy's house for 2 hours. He says both he & Randy laughed & shared lots of fun, then responds to those who wondered if he did a poem at Randy's funeral.
