In 2007, a tragic spinal cord injury transformed the life of Lex Luger, the once-dominant WCW World Heavyweight Champion, leaving him paralyzed. Recently, Luger engaged in a heartfelt conversation with "Under The Ring," sharing insights on his journey and the remarkable progress he has made since then.
"Truth be told, I wasn’t expected to be partially paralyzed," Luger shared with a chuckle. "Doctors refer to me as a 'high-functioning quadriplegic.' I’ve regained the ability to live independently, manage my own meals, and take care of my personal hygiene.
It’s nothing short of a miraculous turnaround, and I truly believe it’s a divine intervention that I’ve come this far."
Lex Luger Profound Transformation
Expressing immense gratitude, Luger highlighted his ability to travel independently, recognizing it as one of his significant accomplishments.
"Taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, I realize that I’ve undergone a profound transformation. In the past, I was solely fixated on my physical prowess, which, while it brought me worldly success, left me spiritually bereft," Luger reflected.
He credits his faith and renewed relationship with God as pivotal elements in shifting his perspective and overcoming his former, narcissistic self. “The spinal cord injury, as it turned out, was a hidden blessing,” Luger shared, highlighting the positive impact it had on his life.
Today, the pro-wrestling icon has become a well-spoken interviewee and a popular figure at conventions, generously showering praise upon his peers. Recently, he commended Bret "Hitman" Hart for masterfully handling the intricate finish of the 1994 Royal Rumble.
Luger attributed the success of the event’s illusion – where both men seemed to eliminate each other simultaneously – solely to Hart’s expertise and charisma. This profound transformation and Luger’s open-hearted reflections reveal a journey of resilience and spiritual awakening, marking a new chapter in the life of this wrestling legend.
