The Genius! Leaping Lanny Poffo!!!!
When i was growing up and watching Grand-Prix Wrestling on ATV, i could not help but notice a high-flying grappler by the name of Leaping Lanny Poffo, very rare in them days to see ANYONE come off the top ropes, fast-forward a few yrs later and there is the exact same wrestler on WWF TV, except he lost every match i witnessed on Saturday mornings!...Although i remember him winning a match over Steve Lombardi at the Halifax Forum...then losing matches at the Forum to Danny Spivy, The Big Bossman etc etc... I remember he used to read poems and toss frisbees out to the crowd...always waited to see if one would come sailing back... time passes and all of a sudden Lanny is no more, instead he becomes this very "feminine" character by the name of "The Genius" well... at least i thought it was pretty hysterical, love the outfit eh? Looks like an Acadia Grad! Anyways thanks Lanny, you were entertaining.
PS- Lanny is in reality, Randy Savage's brother...weird eh?
