As we noted on the site last night, former WCW World champion Lex Luger appeared on TruTV's Hardcore Pawn, looking to sell several items from his career, including his black and silver rhinestone lightning robe, which was his signature robe for a good portion of his career.
Luger arrived with both Les and Seth Gold from the store aware of who he was because they, especially Seth, were wrestling fans growing up.
Luger explained he was looking to raise money for a non-profit organization titled "World Wrestling Outreach" and was hoping to sell his items.
They initially offered $2500 and then brought it up to $3000 because it was for a non-profit. Luger, who noted that he never thought he would sell the robe because it was his "baby for many years", countered by asking for $3500 and they accepted.
Over the course of the discussion, Les, the grumpy owner of the store, tried on the robe.
While very often such shows have worked elements, the materials Luger sold are currently being sold on the website for American Jewelry and Loan, the store that is featured on Hardcore Pawn at this link with the asking price of $7,499.99.
The appearance, which was not promoted by the series at all, will replay this Sunday afternoon this coming Tuesday at 8:30PM Eastern.
