"Macho Man" Randy Savage had a brief stint in TNA during the mid-2000s when TNA brought in numerous former WWE stars to try to boost the credibility of the promotion. Could TNA one-up WWE and CEO Vince McMahon, whose relationship with Savage soured long ago, by inducting Savage posthumously at Slammiversary?
"Leaping" Lanny Poffo, the brother of Randy Savage, told host Wade Keller during an interview on the PWTorch Livecast that Savage established stipulations for any induction, which would have to be met by WWE, TNA, or anyone else.
"Randy wouldn't go in unless I went in and my father went in. He wanted to go in as the Poffo family. That was his stipulation," Poffo said. Asked if he would uphold Savage's request, Poffo said he would.
Poffo continued, "But let me also add that nobody has contacted me from the WWE, so we're just speculating. In other words, Randy got the idea to go in as the Poffos right after the Von Erichs went in. Then we went to Olive Garden to celebrate my father's birthday. It turned out to be his last. He said, 'If anybody wants me in the Hall of Fame, I'm not going in without my father and my brother.' As incoherent as he was at the time, he smiled and he enjoyed it and he understood. And he was very, very happy to hear that. However, let me reiterate. Nobody so far has contacted me for the Hall of Fame, but these are the stipulations I would hold to. We didn't cremate him against his wishes, so we certainly won't induct him into the Hall of Fame against his wishes. We'll do it exactly the way he wanted."
Poffo also described his chief concern about being involved in any Hall of Fame induction for his brother. To read more about that and whether he harbors ill feelings toward WWE for not inducting his brother yet, read the full story at its original source, PWTorch.com by clicking here.
