Before he started doing his gimmick of mimicking Miz, Damien Sandow had a character that was very similar to what Lanny Poffo used to do in WWE. Some fans were critical of that. During a recent interview, Poffo came to the defense of Sandow. He actually went out of his way to point out that Sandow was one of the nicest wrestlers he met during Wrestlemania week. Poffo said that Sandow did not steal his gimmick. He is fine with it.

WWE announced to the world that Randy Savage was going to be inducted into their hall of fame during Wrestlemania weekend. They also stated that his on screen and off screen nemesis, Hulk Hogan, will be the one doing the induction. However, we do not know who will be accepting the actual award. While it would be simple to have Hogan doing it, there are talks that Lanny Poffo could be flown in for the weekend to do that part.

When WWE inducts Randy Savage into the Hall of Fame during Wrestlemania weekend, he will be going into there alone. Management was against the idea of inducting the entire Poffo family because they felt that it was more marketable this way. However, Savage's younger brother, Lanny Poffo, has been quite insistent during interviews that the Macho Man had refused entry unless his father and his brother were inducted as well.
