    Lex Lugar "Why I never won the WWF title"

    Interview joined in progress.....



    The Total Package talks about struggling with the gimmick, traveling the country on the Lex Express, where the gimmick came from, how Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan played a role in the early demise of the Narcissist gimmick, Vince McMahon not wanting to use the Lex Luger name, and more. In regards to the character, SummerSlam 1993 is something James Guttman had always wondered about. He asks Luger about not winning the belt at the pay-per-view against Yokozuna. Lex reveals why that happened, explains that some people threatened to leave if he was giving the title , and the reason Vince McMahon gave him for not putting the strap on him. Ironically, the next year, it happened again. At WrestleMania 10, many wrestling fans had all but assumed that Luger would win the WWF Championship. The same politics from SummerSlam came into play. And although it didn't happen, it wasn't a last minute decision as many people have guessed at:

    "No. To be honest with you, I knew maybe a few months before WrestleMania because my family had never been to an event. So I asked (The WWF) for tickets to WrestleMania and Vince was upset. He called me into his office, this is months and months before WrestleMania, and he goes, "Lex, you know, you're not going to be winning the belt at WrestleMania." And my ex-wife Peggy had some really good friends out of New York. Their family had kids the same age as my kids, so I wanted them there no matter what. So I said, "Vince, I just want them to go to the event with their friends. It doesn't matter. That doesn't have anything to do with me wanting tickets." So he let me know months out that I was not going to be World Champion at WrestleMania because he was worried about me flying my whole family in to celebrate me winning the title and he was courteous enough to tell me that I wasn't winning the belt. So I knew months out."

    This flies in the face of one of wrestling's biggest urban legends. The story goes that Lex Luger was set to win the belt at the PPV until he was overheard bragging about it in a New York bar the night before. The story had no merit and Luger tells ClubWWI.com listeners why:

    "And I've heard these crazy rumors. Someone saw something on Wikipedia one time - which is not an encyclopedia. You can type in and change whatever you want that I was in a bar, messed up, telling everyone I was going to win so they didn't do it. But I was actually, the night before, not in a bar in New York saying I was going to win the World Title. I was actually staying two hours away from New York for the site of Wrestlemania at my wife's friend's house in Connecticut. So I wasn't anywhere near a bar telling people I was going to win the World Title."

    I wonder who threatened to leave? Bret? The Kliq?

    I doubt anybody was going to leave- WCW was not really the big deal it would become at that point & they were better off in WWF, by the way you spelt his name wrong- it is Loser.
    And that's the bottom line, cause Jimbob said so.

    The Kliq wasnt that in power yet.

    Probably Harvey Wippleman or Mr. Fuji.

    This is Luger's side of the story lol. I'm either ready this in Bret's book or maybe they said it in the Bret Hart dvd, but anyway I think Bret said something like this:

    Luger was supposed to win the title, but it didn't look like he was gonna make it. He couldn't get over enough.

    I buy into this more than anyone threatening to leave the company because Luger was getting a strap. If anything, the only people who would leave are the fans haha

    Vnce's intention was always to put it on Luger- but there were a lot of people behind Bret in the company, so they did the Royal Rumble 1994 finish to see who was more popular when announced as the winner- Bret won by a landslide, at which point even Vince had to throw the towel in & admit he had wasted a ton of time & money on Luger
    And that's the bottom line, cause Jimbob said so.

    I find it ironic that Luger left the WWF a year later for WCW lol.
