On the debut episode of his podcast, Genius Cast Podcast, Lanny Poffo talked about how his brother Randy Savage wanted to set up a feud with The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. Check out his comments below.
“I remember he called me up at 2 in the morning… and he said, ‘can you find some breakaway champagne bottles?’ So I said ‘yeah, I can do that’. His plan was to toast to Shawn Michaels’ career, he would pour a drink, they would toast and then they would drink and then Randy would smash the bottle over Shawn Michaels’ head, starting a two-year feud ending in WrestleMania where Shawn Michaels loses his hair if he loses, and Randy returns to the announcing table if he loses. So what happened? Pat Patterson says, ‘well Randy, we’re having a youth movement and the best thing you can do is to stay on the microphone.’
