Lex Luger Comments on the Undertaker’s Streak, Sting to WWE, More
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.29.2014

- Lex Luger was recently interviewed by In The Room, here are the highlights…

On The Sting to WWE Talks: [Sting] felt comfortable in WCW and they always took care of him all those years, so really when WCW and WWE were coexisting he never really felt a compelling reason or time in his career where he thought if he went to WWE that there would be a huge positive move for him. I can't say that I disagree … [With that said] I don't think anyone could orchestrate the ending part of [Sting's] career better than WWE could. They're just so good at that. Whether it's a Hall of Fame bid or a match with The Undertaker I would LOVE, LOVE LOVE to see that happen personally. I think it would be the cherry on top for his career.

On The Undertaker's Streak: I was brought in by Matsuda to always be professional, don't ever question finishes. If a guy like Undertaker [wanted to beat me at WrestleMania], I wouldn't have had any problem putting him over, especially at WrestleMania. I understand … that some guys might be frustrated but I don't understand what they would be frustrated about. It's one match in a career. If you have confidence in yourself, your career, and the big picture as far as where you're going, I don't think it hurts at all to put Undertaker over at WrestleMania.

On His Several Heel and Face Turns: Behind the scenes, I was kind of the guy … I was proud that I was able to pull that off. A lot of guys might not have been able to. At the time, if one of the top three babyfaces or heels would get injured, people don't realize that they'd switch me. [They] were like 'So-and-so got hurt. What are we going to do? Let's switch Lex.' And when the first heel went down, they'd switch me back heel … All those changes, it was actually sort of a compliment that I was the type of character that could be either an arrogant bad guy or be a confident good guy and kind of pull it off with some kind of credibility. Would I have been able to sustain it for longer periods of time as a good guy or a bad guy? I guess I'll never know but I'm not complaining. I was like the utility All Star.

On Being Thought of by Some as The Next Hulk Hogan: To me it's flattering for anyone to say I'm the next Hulk Hogan. There is only one Hulk Hogan. No one could ever, unless it was an extraordinary circumstance, ever even come close to something like that so. In my career I was very confident in myself and what I had, talent-wise, and I think I had a good career. But to even be mentioned in the same breath as the next Hogan, I was flattered by that. I couldn't have lived up to that and I don't know that anyone could.
