Lanny "The Genius" Poffo regarding Randy Savage status in WWE Hall of Fame:

The thing is the WWE did not ask my permission to run the parody of the Huckster and the Nacho Man, and I don't have a battery of lawyers on retainer, so my belief is, do what you want. You want to honor him? Go ahead. This is the same company that didn't send its condolences to my mother who is going to be 87 in January. Now I know they made a nice video tribute, but don't you understand that that's just PR. Just like when they fire you, they wish you luck on your future endeavors? That's PR, they have a public relations department. So naturally, when somebody dies, and everybody always has, you know, because it's either suicide or an overdose.

"In Randy's case it was one of the few honorable deaths they've had. His toxicology report was crystal clear. Clean. And that meant a lot to me. Well, name a wrestler that died and they've all got something wrong with their toxicology report… Remember the Huckster and the Nacho Man? Everyone says 'What's the matter? Can't you take a joke?' Well, some of those jokes were a little bit… like they accused Hulk Hogan of doing Elizabeth. Remember that one, when they did the Larry King one? And I thought that was- they said 'How was Elizabeth?' 'Not too good.' The guy imitating Hulk Hogan and Randy looked at each other. And they made fun of his balding, and that was a little bit of lack of respect. So I said wait a minute, it's true that Randy wanted the Poffos to go in as a family but you can't make them do that. So I figured, rather than put myself in the middle for the rest of my life, I said hey, go ahead and do whatever you want. I only have two requests. Leave me out of it- don't invite me- and please don't pay me, because I don't need the thirty pieces of silver. That was the amount Judas Iscariot took to betray Jesus…"

Sounds like he gave WWE double digits and walked away. Poffo family still holds a gigantic grunge against the McMahons and it won't go away as easily as others like Bret Hart or Bruno Sammartino.

After tonight they can't continue to not push daniel bryan and put him as the face of the company.

Also best raw ending all year. I am actually pumped for TLC. Cena's promo was great the crowd was spectacular. Only disappointment is that they didn't announce anything for the tag titles

That ending was sick. I marked out when Michaels hit Punk with the SCM.

It is kinda weird that Cena ended up standing beside Triple H, Steph and Corporate Kane while Triple H's boy Randy Orton got Pedigree'd lying away alone, all of that while people were still chanting "DANIEL BRYAN!".

Okada > Cena

For those who don't know who Okada is, he is the current IWGP Heavyweight champion in NJPW. Some might remember him during his TNA days.

Best Raw ending this year. It's nice to see a Heel Shawn Michaels accepting the slammy Award. I think it's going to be Corporate DX vs. Bryan and Punk at Wrestlemania 30. And Heel John Cena vs. The Undertaker.
