Lex Luger was one of the most significant stars in pro wrestling during the 90s. Even Jim Ross believes he should be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.

Lex Luger did a lot of things during his career but he never won the world title in WWE. There’re also rumors that suggested that Luger was promised a world title run by Vince McMahon.

While speaking on Stories With Brisco and Bradshaw, Lex Luger revealed that he was never promised a world title run by Vince McMahon during his time in the company.

“People think I was promised the belt. Vince never promised me the world title and he told me flat out, ‘If I put the belt on you and that’s the direction we go, I’d like to see that at WrestleMania 10 next Spring.’ So Vince got Yoko and Taker in an angle, we did the DQ and Vince said, ‘If we can rev this thing back up for WrestleMania, then that’s the direction we go’ but Vince never promised me the title, never said, ‘You’re gonna be my guy.’ People all say that and think that but [that] was never the case behind the scenes with that whole thing.


Regardless, we certainly hope that Lex Luger will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame somewhere down the line as many fans feel that he deserves it.
