Chris Jerichos’ website, WebIsJericho, has posted a new column that is written by Mick Foley.
This is where the Hardcore Legend pitches the case for WWE to induct Lex Luger into their Hall of Fame.
“In the simplest terms, Lex Luger was far too big of a star not to be in the WWE Hall of Fame. He was one of the very biggest stars of his era, and during his heyday – 1987-1999 – he headlined more pay-per-view shows, sold more tickets, and appeared on more magazine covers than all but a select few superstars of his era.”
Foley continued by noting that he considers himself a pretty solid choice for the WWE Hall of Fame and he doesn’t remember there being outcry for him not deserving to be in the class.
Foley stated that he hopes this article will get people talking and perhaps open the right eyes to make this induction happen. In fact, Foley thinks it might just remind people how good Luger was.
During his time in the pro wrestling business, Luger was a two-time WCW World Champion – his first reign being in 1991 and the second in 1997. He was also a two-time TV Champion, 5-time United States Champion, and three-time Tag Team Champion. In WWE, he started out as the Narcissist in 1993 then was re-packaged as he All-American after that and entered into a feud with Yokozuna. He won the 1994 Royal Rumble Match.
