Dave Meltzer talked about the upcoming Randy Savage DVD in the Wrestling Observer newsletter. He noted that the Lanny Poffo interview in the documentary is notable because Lanny had been critical of WWE in the past and made a point to say in interviews that Randy felt that the entire family should be inducted into the Hall of Fame like the Von Erich’s were. The issue from WWE’s side is that if they do that then they would be backing down to a demand. Lanny would later say that WWE could go ahead and induct Randy but he wouldn’t come if they didn’t respect Randy’s wishes.
The feeling is strong that the DVD is a prelude to Savage going into the Hall of Fame. We first reported in June that the DVD would go into a lot of detail on Savage’s life and would touch on the issues between Randy, Vince McMahon, and the rumors on why he’s not already in the Hall of Fame.
