Go here.

My favorite quote from the article?

And he [Poffo] recites a short poem even today as part of his voicemail greeting.






Another fan of the Nature Boy speaks his mind.

Cool article. It's always good to hear about some of the older guys who were able to get out of the business free & clear and go on to lead normal, healthy lives.

I seem to recall Scott Keith making reference to kiddie porn and Lanny Poffo getting busted for it. Anyone know anything about that? Is Scott crazy?

Actually a quick Google search led me here: http://www.411mania.com/ wrestling/videos/article.php? videos_id=143

- The Mountie, Beau Beverly and Blake Beverly v. The Legion of Doom and
the Undertaker. Now this is the one that shoots down the whole
"suspension of disbelief" surrounding the idea that actual fans wrote in
for this stuff. Who would ever specifically request this six-man match?
The Mountie's WHOMP ASS~! theme song gets me happy happy to start,
however (hey, I'm an Emeril Lagasse mark, too, got a problem?). The
Beverly Brothers are currently known as plain ol' Wayne Bloom and Mike
Enos in WCW. The Mountie is Quebecer Jacques. "The Genius" Lanny
Poffo, the Beverly Brothers' manager, is probably someone's bitch in a
prison in Downer's Grove, IL, and may be getting butt-fucked as we
speak for being a convicted kiddie porn distributor.
Anyway, onto the
match. It sucks. LOD doesn't suck quite as badly as they do today.
See Beau run, run Beau run. Almost nothing happens for the first five
minutes, as a lockup is teased and then the heels run away. See Blake
run, run Blake run. See Scott rant, rant Scott rant. The Beverlys do
get a chance to eventually show off their stuff, but Hawk's supreme lack
of talent kind of kills the effect. Animal tags in, pier-six brawl,
Doomsday Device, bammo. 1 for 3.

It's Scotty making up supposed facts. You may remember it from the RSPW FAQ and his books.



There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
