History: Lex Luger's wrestling career has gone from tremendous highs to agonizing lows in the past few years. Luger made his wrestling debut in 1985. A 3-time Southern (FL) Heavyweight Champion, as well as the Bahamas Heavyweight Champion for a time (before he grew tired of holding the belt), Luger arrived in the NWA ready to become a champion. It did not take him long. In 1987, Luger won the NWA/WCW United States Heavyweight Title from Nikita Koloff. He held this belt for a couple of months, then was beaten by Dusty Rhodes. Luger was briefly a member of the IV Horsemen, replacing Ole Anderson. After this, he partnered up with Barry Windham to win the NWA Tag Team Titles by beating Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard of the Horsemen. Although Anderson and Blanchard soon reclaimed the titles, the victory over them earned Luger and his teammate much respect, but soon after the two broke up violently, when Windham became a Horseman.

Luger and Windham's separation caused a great feud between them, especially after Windham won the US Chamionship Belt. In February of 1989, Luger defeated Windham to earn the US Title for the 2nd time. He lost the title briefly to Michael Hayes in May, then regained the title. Luger then faced all comers for almost 17 months before Stan Hansen managed to take the title from him. He then faced Hansen one more time, and won the NWA/WCW US Title for the 4th Time at the end of 1990, which he held for another 7 months.

In July of '91, Luger was given a major break, as the WCW World Title was left up for grabs after Ric Flair went to the WWF. In the tournament final, Luger beat his old nemesis and tag team partner Windham to win the World Title. For a brief moment, the World and US Titles were united, before Luger was forced to give up the US Belt. He held the World Title for 7 months before being beaten by his best friend, Sting. It was then when he decided to try out the waters of the WWF. Although he had some great matches against the likes of Yokozuna and others, Luger did not manage to win any gold in the WWF, so he returned to his old hunting ground of WCW.

In the first half of 1996, Luger quickly regained his standing as one of the greats. Teaming with Sting in January, the two won the WCW Tag Team Titles from Harlem Heat. Over the next 5 months, the two defended the belts against some of the tougher competitors in the world. But Luger was not just a tag team specialist during this time, as he defeated Johnny B. Badd in February to briefly hold the WCW TV Title, which Badd took back the next night. Not to be daunted, Luger came back in March to retake the TV Title from Badd, and this time defended it for another 5 months. Sting and Luger lost the belts to Harlem Heat in June, and Lord Steven Regal took the TV Title from Luger in October. Luger, by then, had a new goal: the destruction of the nWo.

With Hollywood Hogan and "Macho Man" Randy Savage part of the nWo, and Sting temporarily a "free agent", Luger led the charge against the nWo. In October of 1997, Luger managed the impossible: he defeated Hogan to claim the WCW World Title for the second time. Although his reign only lasted for 5 days before Hogan took back the belt, Luger proved his strength. A few months later, Luger proved where his loyalties lie, joining the nWo Wolfpac, then recruiting his longtime friend Sting into the Red 'n' Black. Luger stayed a steadfast member of the Wolfpac. He became known as their main "recruiter", and was even sometimes the partner of Sting as the WCW Tag Team Champions during Sting and Nash's reign, due to Wolfpac rules. In August '98, Luger challenged Bret Hart to a title match on a Monday Nitro, and managed to rack him, winning his old favorite: the United States title. In the return match 3 days later, Hart won the title back. In the next few months, Lex would not be a major factor in any titles. This would soon change...

At the first Nitro of '99, the main event was a World Title match: Kevin Nash (the champ) vs. Hollywood Hogan. Nash gave the title to Hogan, and he and Nash rejoined nWo Hollywood. Both Bill Goldberg and Luger ran out, fighting the nWo. Then Luger nailed Goldberg and racked him, showing that he, too, had joined the new nWo. Luger then attacked his former partner, Konnan, at another WCW event, breaking off his ties with his 'friend'. He also helped to dismantle the LWO, and attacked Rey Mysterio Jr. frequently, due to the fact Mysterio kept wearing the LWO shirt. At Souled Out, Luger defeated Konnan with the Torture Rack, after Miss Elizabeth hit Konnan with spraypaint. He then was scheduled to go against Mysterio and Konnan at Superbrawl IX with Kevin Nash, but had his arm injured in a car door by Mysterio. Luger still played a factor in the match, however, knocking out Konnan with his cast while his replacement, Scott Hall, used the Outsiders' Edge on Mysterio. This would be consistent with Luger's behavior for the next few months.

In the early months of '99, Luger became an interferer almost full-time, helping Kevin Nash win many of his matches, including over Rey Mysterio at Uncensored. However, not even Luger's interference was enough for Nash to defeat Goldberg at Spring Stampede '99. Luger continued to hang with Nash for a while, but mainly stayed on the sidelines, healing up his injured arm, as well as other injuries. Luger really made his return to the spotlight when he began arguing constantly with his former friend, Sting, over his current friendship with Hollywood Hogan, who had apparently reformed. Luger seemed to believe that Hogan had not reformed, and that he was tricking Sting into something. During one Nitro, the threesome, with Bret Hart, were arguing about it in a locker room, when the lights went out. When they were turned back on, Sting was found laid out. The debate about who attacked who went on for a few weeks, until the PPV.

At Fall Brawl '99, the mystery was solved, when Sting turned on Hogan, taking him out and winning the World Title. Sting and Luger then began partnering up, an evil duo that attacked many wrestlers, starting with Ric Flair. Luger and Sting began a long war with Hogan, Flair, and Hart, which raged for a few months. At Halloween Havoc, Luger took advantage of an injured Hart, putting on the Torture Rack and getting the victory. Luger would next compete in the Mayhem World Title Tournament, after Sting was stripped of the belt following his actions at Havoc. Luger defeated Rick Steiner in the first round, and got a free bye in the second, but finally fell to Sting, despite his work at getting Meng to take his former associate out. This also backfired on Luger, as he fought and lost to Meng at Mayhem. Luger also had a short feud with Jeff Jarrett, whom Luger blamed for a backstage guitar shot on Miss Elizabeth.

The feud between Sting and Luger grew after that, with Miss Elizabeth being the focal point between the two, as Luger seemed to torture her, putting her into matches against other women wrestlers. Sting soon started coming to her aid, and Luger and Sting met at Starrcade with Miss Elizabeth, unofficially, on the line. Of course, Elizabeth stayed with Luger, causing the DQ and helping Luger take out the Stinger. Luger then began appearing dressed as Sting, right down to the facepaint, taunting the man he had 'beaten'. This went on for a short time, before Luger went on to other things.

In the year 2000, Luger began siding with Ric Flair, calling themselves Team Package. The duo, partially teammed with Diamond Dallas Page, began battling against Hogan and his allies. At Superbrawl '00, Luger went at it against Hogan, but lost the match. Soon after, Sting made his reappearance in the wrestling ring, and renewed acquaintances with Luger. At Uncensored '00, Luger lost another PPV match, getting floored by the Stinger in a Lumberjack with Casts match. It was not long afterwards that things changed dramatically in WCW.

When Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo reappeared in WCW, taking over the President's offices in April '00, they immediately formed the New Blood, a group of the younger wrestlers, and turned them against the Millionaire's Club, which consisted of Luger, Flair, Hogan, Sting, Diamond Dallas Page, Kevin Nash, and others. Luger stayed paired with Flair in Team Package, and the duo, with Miss Elizabeth, entered the vacant Tag-Team Title Tournament, beating the Mamalukes and the Harris Boys in a Handicap match at Spring Stampede. They then lost, due to interference to Shane Douglas and Buff Bagwell, who walked out with the titles.

Luger continued to feud with Buff Bagwell, as well as with Vince Russo, who basically 'kidnapped' Miss Elizabeth, saying that her contract made her the property of WCW. Russo had Elizabeth fight other ladies, much like Luger had done before. This time, Luger came to her aid more than once, battling against the rebels of WCW. He met Buff Bagwell at Slamboree '00, and took him down with the Torture Rack. Luger then began a feud with another newcomer, Chuck Palumbo, who began coming out to Luger's theme music and poses. Luger continuously came to blows with Palumbo, usually with Palumbo's "Flexer" weapon coming into it as well. However, before the two could fight at a PPV, contract problems developed between Luger, Elizabeth, and the main office. When Elizabeth refused to do something that she did not wish to, both Elizabeth and Luger walked from WCW. Negotiations between the groups continued for a good portion of 2000.

Luger, sans Elizabeth, made his return in October '00, running out at Halloween Havoc after Buff Bagwell had just defeated David Flair in a First Blood DNA match. Luger & Buff hugged, then Luger knocked Buff out with a clothesline. He also busted off Buff's lip, allowing Flair to get the blood sample he wanted (to see if Buff was the father of Miss Hancock's baby). Over the next few weeks, while Luger & Buff had a mini feud, the Total Package began calling out Bill Goldberg, who was under a stipulation from Vince Russo that if he lost a match, he lost his job. Luger swore that he would be the one to end Goldberg's career. After various brawls (which usually consisted of Luger getting away from Goldberg), they fought at WCW Mayhem. During the fight, Goldberg tried to use his Spear, but Luger pulled the referee in front so that Goldberg speared both men. Goldberg then Jackhammered Luger for the victory.

But Luger wasn't done, as he came out on the next show and showed 'conclusive' evidence to the men in charge that Goldberg struck a referee, and thus should have been disqualified. This really didn't hold up, however, since it was obvious that Luger pulled the ref into Goldberg's charge. Luger continued to state that he would end Goldberg's career, one way or another. He began to make problems with Goldberg's friend, the Sarge, who was the man who taught Goldberg how to wrestle in the Powerplant. Goldberg, naturally, came to the save. At Starrcade '00, the two were scheduled to face off again. During the night, Luger interrupted the Sarge while he was being interviewed by Buff Bagwell. Before he could do much damage, Buff ran him off. As Luger & Goldberg fought later on, both the Sarge & Bagwell came to ringside, with Bagwell trying to convince the Sarge not to get involved. But Bagwell himself got involved, when Luger again tried to use a ref as protection from the Spear. Buff reached over and pulled the referee out of Luger's grasp, leaving him unprotected. But Luger came back, with the use of brass knuckles, first hitting the Sarge, then Goldberg, who kicked out at 2. Buff then climbed the turnbuckle, apparently to try and hit the Buff Blockbuster on Luger. He missed, hitting Goldberg instead. Goldberg came back later on to Spear & Jackhammer Luger, winning the match. However, after the match, Buff showed he was siding with Luger, turning on Goldberg & the Sarge by hitting them with a chair.

This was the formation of Totally Buff, a tag-team with two men who believed in their physiques. With Bagwell on his team, Luger felt even more confident, and continued to call both the Sarge & Goldberg out during shows. During this time, they also managed to injure the Sarge's arm. This led to a match at WCW Sin in January '01, where Totally Buff faced Goldberg & the Sarge in a tag-team match. While Goldberg dominated the two men, Totally Buff was able to manage a lot of offense against the Sarge, who was still suffering from his injury. The true factor turned out to be a trickster in the crowd, set up by Luger & Bagwell. Earlier in the night, a fan had asked for and gotten Goldberg's autograph. Bagwell taunted the fan during the fight, which led Goldberg to come to his defense. But the fan was a plant, who sprayed an unknown liquid into Goldberg's eyes, blinding him. After taking care of the Sarge, Luger put Goldberg on his shoulders, so that Buff could hit a Super Blockbuster. This got them the pin, earning the win for Totally Buff and causing Goldberg to have to leave WCW as per the still-running stipulations.

Totally Buff had another impact at WCW Sin, interfering in the World Tag-Team match to help the Natural Born Thrillers get back the titles from the InSiders, Kevin Nash & Diamond Dallas Page. This would later lead to Totally Buff proclaiming that they were the #1 Contenders, when they joined up with Ric Flair's Magnificent Seven (Luger, Buff, Flair, Scott Steiner, Road Warrior Animal, Jeff Jarrett, & Rick Steiner). One team disagreed with their contendership status, however: Kronik. The two powerhouse tag-teams fought in singles & tag-team matches over the next few weeks. At one show, Bryan Clark was badly injured in a match against Luger, which apparently took him out of the match at Superbrawl: Revenge. Totally Buff, of course, were very proud of this. The match became listed as a Handicap match, with Totally Buff against Bryan Adams. The fight began like a tag-team brawl, though, when Clark, still hurt but not willing to stay in the back, came out with his partner. He was quickly taken out, though, and stayed on the outside for most of the match. Adams was still imposing, and fought Totally Buff 2-on-1 as best he could. In the end, interference was again a factor, as Mike Awesome, dressed up like Clark, came down and attacked Adams, allowing Totally Buff to get the victory.

This officially made Totally Buff the #1 Contenders, and they were quick to put it to work, challenging Chuck Palumbo & Sean O'Haire, the two men that they had helped win the tag-team titles from the InSiders at WCW Sin. At WCW Greed in March '01, the match finally took place, but it wasn't what you might have expected, as the two younger wrestlers dominated Luger & Bagwell, winning the match with a Seantom Bomb in less than a minute. This was a devestating defeat for Totally Buff, who wouldn't be seen for the rest of the Turner-ran WCW. Neither wrestler made an appearance at the Season Finale of the federation.

Luger would later appear with the World Wrestling All-Stars, where he defeated his old WCW ally, Sting, in December '02 for the WWA Heavyweight Title. Unfortunately, the reign only lasted a week, as Sting beat him in a rematch to win away the belt. Luger then went back to hanging out with his girlfriend, Miss Elizabeth. However, tragedy struck on May 1st, '03, when Luger called 911, desperate for some help. But it was too late, as Miss Elizabeth passed away from an accidental drug overdose, with alcohol being mixed with various drugs. Luger, meanwhile, was arrested for possession of controlled substances, and was later charged with 14 different drug possession counts. However, Luger was later released, thanks to a ruling about the cause of Miss Elizabeth's death.

In November '03, Luger reemerged in the wrestling ring, teaming with Jeff Jarrett against AJ Styles & Sting in NWA-TNA. Luger managed to get Styles in the Torture Rack during the match, but Sting changed things by hammering Luger's mid-section with his black baseball bat, causing Luger to collapse and get rolled up for the loss by Styles. Luger came back to get some revenge in February '04 by costing Styles the NWA World Tag Titles in a match with Abyss, but nothing more came of the feud. Luger then went back to touring the independent scene, trying to get his life back together.

In January '05, though, Luger was once again in trouble with the law. Police officers found Luger passed out in his vehicle. When Luger was revived, he tried to drive away, with the police pursuing and catching him. Luger was later charged with expired tags, having no proof of insurance, having an open container of alcohol, and, most seriously, driving under the influence. Luger was later sentenced to five years' probation and a $1,000 fine. Luger kept wrestling for the rest of the year, but had another issue when he, Marcus "Buff" Bagwell, and Scott Steiner were removed from an airplane in Minneapolis after a disturbance. The wrestlers later flew on to Canada, but when they arrived, Luger was sent back to Minneapolis, where he was arrested for two outstanding warrants, an outstanding drug charge and a fugitive from justice charge, both issued in Georgia. He was set to appear in court at the end of the year, although it's currently unknown what happened. It's sad to see how far Luger has fallen since he was a main event wrestler in the '80s and '90s for both WCW and the WWF. Although some still pine for Luger's return to the big time, the chances of his coming back to challenge in either TNA or WWE are very remote.
