If he could still entertain today's wrestling fans:
"The writers would probably give me something to read and then ruin my gimmick. I wrote my own poetry and I refuse to read somebody else poems. When you think about the old days, people like Junkyard Dog, Roddy Piper, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Randy Savage, they had personality. You didn't have to write for these people, they were their personality."
The legacy of his father, Angelo Poffo:
"My father first made a name for himself back when he was in the Navy in 1945, July 4th he broke the world record for sit-ups. He was featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not! My father took that publicity and used that for his wrestling career."
Randy Savage telling them about his wishes to have the whole family inducted into the Hall of Fame:
"It was the final birthday that we celebrated with my fatherů he lived to be 85 years old. We went to the Olive Garden in Largo, Florida and Randy mentioned the Hall of Fame for the first time that we heard of. Randy said, 'how do you like that? The Von Erichs in the Hall of Fame, even Chris, all of them. What kind of a Hall of Fame is it that Chris (Von Erich) goes in and he's not in for his first name, he's in for his last name. I think the Poffos are better than the Von Erichs and if anybody wants me in, I'm not going in (the Hall of Fame) unless Angelo, Lanny, and Randy Savage go in together.'"
Poffo also dealt with a caller thinking he was using the death of Randy Savage as a way to get more famous, Lanny also talks about his preparation for poems, his character being homosexual and much more in this exclusive 120-minute interview on Under the Mat Radio.
