• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 95th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend Angelo Poffo.

Poffo was a professional wrestler during the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, as well as the promoter of International Championship Wrestling (ICW), but the thing Angelo was most famous for, was being the father of WWF Legend “The Macho Man” Randy Savage and WWF Veteran “The Genius” Lanny Poffo.

In 1995, he was inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is probably going to happen as part of their annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.

• Fired WWE Hall Of Famer Reveals When His Relationship With Vince McMahon Began To Sour

During a recent edition of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson (who used to be a backstage producer in WWE, but got fired after he got blamed for allowing a drunk Alicia Fox to wrestle at a WWE Live Event) talked about when his relationship with Vince McMahon began to sour.

Below is what Arn said:

“Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt are partners. And they were getting over if you remember that time?

They were getting over strong. And of course, you had the other Wyatts on the floor [at ringside].

I mean this was one of those combinations that you were like ‘my god these guys may win the tag titles and never lose them, ever.’ We do stuff that we knew was good heat.

During the match, we would lay some stuff out and we would do some clever stuff using the guys on the floor. And then we would come back and just get chewed out for it.

He would say ‘guys that’s babyface stuff.’ Let me get this right. You get into a scenario where you bail out to the floor and a babyface is chasing you. Your partner distracts the ref and the guy on the floor kicks his head off. Behind the referees back on the floor! And that’s a baby face thing!?”
