The first live wrestling event I ever attended had "Leaping"Lanny Poffo on it. He may even have been the opener. He read a poem off his Frisbee and threw it into the crowd. I dont remember who he faced or if he won but I remember the Frisbee.
He seemed like a guy who really loved his family. I dont know anything about his personal life, but it didnt seem like he had a significant other of any kind. Once Randy passed I felt like he was sort of all alone and always felt a little sad for him.
The Genius, Lanny Poffo, has come to a tragic end He passed away at only 68 And though his book of limericks all warned us not to smoke Clean living couldn’t help him change his fate As Leaping Lanny he recited poetry galore The Genius cracked Hulk Hogan in the dome WCW saw his prime earning years He got rich while they paid him to stay home Whether Macho Man’s kid brother or as Mr. Perfect’s aide Lanny Poffo did it all when said and done But when I think of the Genius and the world’s smartest man I’ll remember that he’d blow himself for fun
Geeks!? Should he be talking? This is the same guy that wore a short sleeve shirt and tie at the "pledge to vote" in Washington DC. Don't be bitter Bradshaw, at least I still remember the great main event fueds you had with the Nwo.
