Lanny Poffo Says WCW Never Flew Him In During His Entire Contract

"The Genius" Lanny Poffo recently participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything Q&A. You can see highlights from the session below, and the full post at this link.

If WCW ever flew him in:

WWE Disbands Talent Management Group After Operating For Only Five Weeks

No, they never flown me in. The whole thing was my brother's idea for me to be Gorgeous George. I worked out, and Randy was always checking to make sure I was working out. I was using the sunbeds and I just prepared myself for a debut that never happened. I kept working and finally I bleached my hair so much it started breaking off. Instead of looking like Gorgeous George I looked like the Scare Crow from the Wizard of Oz

The "title smashing" on WWF TV:

First of all, I never touched the belt, he smashed it. One of the shards of the belt cut him and he was bleeding. I am glad I did it in one take so he didn't have to do it again. I have never seen that belt again since. I've heard rumors about it, but I just don't know.

His win over Hogan:

Well, let's put it this way, it happened in 89 and I am not over it yet... so ask me what it was like to be a journeyman for 21 years, was it worth it to be a main eventer for four months in the WWF? Yes!
