Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler--His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption by Lex LugerLex Luger, wrestling megasensation and three-time world heavyweight champion, ruled the ring for years as The Total Package. Whether he was making a dramatic entrance from a helicopter, defeating champ Hulk Hogan, or sculpting a near-perfect physique, Lex was on top of his game. Yet backstage, he was wrestling with addictions to sex, drugs, and alcohol--things he clung to even when his mistress died suddenly of a drug overdose and Lex went to jail. There, Lex faced the truth: he was losing the fight for his life. And still awaiting him was his most brutal opponent yet, when the wrestling champ found himself helplessly paralyzed from the neck down. In Wrestling with the Devil, Lex Luger reveals never-before-told stories from his career, his struggle with personal demons, and how, through unexpected faith, grace, and redemption, he overcame all odds to fight the only battle that really matters.

WWE Exclusive: Why Lex Luger Will Not Be Inducted into the Hall of Fame
Published 3rd May at pm by Wrestle Talk. Luger opened up about a lot of the dark periods of his life, including his past drug addictions and the death of his former girlfriend, Elizabeth Hulette — better known to wrestling fans as Miss Elizabeth. So I remember, when they went through my place, they found all the drugs and alcohol. That was part of my lifestyle back then. They arrested me on drug possession… people talk about what was the low point because I remember thinking about they take your shoelaces, they take everything from me when you get checked in the jail.
I had the opportunity to take part in the filming of the inaugural episode which focused on the relationship between my brother Randy Savage and my former sister-in-law Miss Elizabeth Hulette. Many fans have asked what my thoughts were of the episode. Did the producers of the show and those interviewed portray the real-life story of Randy and Liz factually, or did they get some aspects of the story wrong? In my second installment on Pro Wrestling Stories , I give a behind-the-scenes look of the filming process, share my thoughts on the episode itself as well bestow a few other musings to boot. To start off with, everybody from Viceland was polite and professional. They came to my house in January of and since I have hardwood floors, they had to throw piles of blankets on the ground to stop the echo. Everybody from the lighting to the sound people did everything professionally.
WWF Old School
Here is the official quote In , Elizabeth Hulette passed away as a result of a drug and alcohol overdose at the age of Luger had been living with her at the time of her death and was linked to involvement in heavy drug use with her, as well as several documented incidents with the law leading up to her death. We have learned that Luger's name was brought up in a conversation when WWE was deciding on inducting The Four Horsemen, but his name was later scrapped as there are many people in the business that view Luger as an enabler to Elizabeth prior to her passing. This contradicts what many people assume is the reason for Luger's lack of acknowledgment from WWE.
The WWE Hall of Famer appeared as a guest on the Steve Austin Show this week and he used his appearance to recall to incident with his former tag-team partner at an event in Paris. Hogan, 65, and Savage, who died aged 58 in , are two of the most iconic wrestlers to ever set foot in the squared-circle. The pair battled both against and alongside each other at the height of their fame in the late 80s and early 90s. I loved working with him. There were no steps.
