Lanny Poffo Reflects On Randy Savage’s Idea For Shawn Michaels Feud In 1993


Lanny Poffo spoke about an idea that Randy Savage had for a feud with Shawn Michaels in 1993 during the first episode of his Genius Cast podcast (via SportsKeeda). Here is what he had to say:

“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.’
