A WWE legend recently opened up about not being inducted into the Stamford-based company's Hall of Fame.
The name in question is wrestling legend Lex Luger. The 65-year-old joined WWE in 1993 after five successful years at WCW. He only spent two years in the company and returned to WCW in 1995. The former Royal Rumble winner is considered by many to be one of the greats of his generation. Luger is, however, yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The former WCW Champion recently launched his Lex Expressed podcast, where he was asked to share his thoughts on his absence from the Hall of Fame. In a candid conversation, he gave his thoughts on the matter and what a potential induction means to him.
“It would be enormous. It’d be a huge honor. Absolutely. I get asked that question a lot. A lot of guys go, ‘Wait a second. You’re not in?’ A lot of people think I’m already in. A lot of people will introduce me as a Hall of Famer. They say WWE and I go ‘Well, no, actually I’m not a WWE Hall of Famer yet.’ I don’t know if that’s a factor or not, but it may be controversial," Lex Luger said.
He further stated:
"Some people felt like the wrestling world kind of shunned me for quite a while over some of the things that happened outside of the ring that we can obviously go into at the proper time when we want to in the future. So if I never get in, I still look back fondly with my career and what I did accomplish, but man, it definitely would be the whipped cream and cherry on top and a huge honor if I ever do.” [H/T: WrestlingNews.co]
