• Lex Luger Walks Again (Video)
Old School WWF/WCW Legend ‘The Total Package’ Lex Luger suffered a spinal stroke in 2007, that led to paralysis.
He had to regain movement in his arms and legs again, which took years of recovery and by 2010 he was able to walk short distances and even drive a car again.
However, by 2014, things got worse again and in 2021 he was all wheelchair bound with his overall condition not looking too good.
With all that in mind, people were positively surprised when they attended the 4 Horsemen Q&A event during last weekend’s Starrcast wrestling convention, as they witnessed Lex Luger walking to his chair.
Yes, the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion needed a little help, but it was still great to see that he’s doing a little better these days and is at least able to walk around with the assistance of handrail support, other people or probably even crutches.
You can watch it below:
Lex Luger first joined Vince McMahon’s short-lived World Bodybuilding Federation in 1992, then wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from January 1993 until he returned to Ted Turner’s WCW in September of 1995.

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (August 4, 1984) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1984, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly Saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 30, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever “WWF Brawl To End It All” event.
