• Reason Behind Shawn Michaels – Randy Savage Feud Being Cancelled Revealed

During a recent edition of ‘The Genius Cast’, Lanny Poffo (brother of late WWE Hall of Famer “Macho Man” Randy Savage) revealed that Shawn Michaels – Randy Savage feud was cancelled back in the day because of WWF’s ‘youth movement’.

Below is what Lanny said:

“I remember he (Randy) 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 2 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’.”
