[1990-04-21-WWF-Superstars] The Genius promo

Recommended Posts

Apparently the Genius raided the remnants of Chris Champion's hair that had been cut off. They're still pushing a Genius/Beefcake feud--I guess it's a placeholder for the summer but it still seems like an odd program for a guy ostensibly being groomed to take the IC title.

Didn't Genius get a lot of his hair cut at the Royal Rumble. That hairdo has really flourished since then. This was not a very eloquent poem by Genius standards.

He got it cut again at WrestleMania VI.

 

Genius literally milked this haircut stuff for the rest of the year. I saw a match on Youtube where he goes up against Dustin Rhodes in a match that had to be from December, and his poem makes note of his hair having grown back.

They are using Genius to keep heat on a Brutus Beefcake program. I wonder if they had made the call to put Hennig with Heenan at this point. My guess is no, if they are teasing a Beefcake/Genius house show run.

They may have wanted to keep Curt and Lanny together even after Curt won the IC title at first, which would have made Lanny the man Beefcake would have had to go through to get a shot at the belt. If that had remained the plan, extending his feud with Beefcake would have made sense. As it turned out, the plans changed and this segment just seems pointless.

It looks like the Genius has got hold of a woman’s wig from somewhere and there is some serious volume on that barnet! I thought his feud with Beefcake was over after the Royal Rumble but apparently not as he reads a poem directed at him and warns him to beware of his IQ.
