Speaking during a recent “K & S Wrestlefest” virtual signing, Molly Holly credited Lanny Poffo for getting her a job in WCW.
The current WWE producer revealed that it was Lanny Poffo who recommended her to Randy Savage, which in turn resulted in her being hired by the Ted Turner owned promotion. She said,
“Lanny told Macho Man, ‘This girl, Nora, is really nice, and she knows a lot of wrestling moves. She could probably really help her.’ So then I asked my boss, who’s friends with Lanny Poffo, if I could take a leave of absence from my telemarketing job so I can train Gorgeous George for one month in a warehouse in Tampa. During that month, I taught her as many moves as I could, and at the end of that month, Macho Man asked me if I would want to be part of their entourage on television. I worked in the indies, but I didn’t think I’d ever be on TV. I mean, Sable was the top star, and I wasn’t a Sable, you know?“
