19. Lex Luger

The man dubbed in wrestling circles as the “Total Package” really hasn’t had a lot of good fortune the last few years.  After making millions in the industry, Lex Luger has found himself without money, the use of his legs (he is currently paralyzed) and unfortunately is the butt of many a joke in the wrestling industry.  This is not how we will choose to remember Lex Luger.

Granted, Luger was not the most accomplished wrestler, but he was certainly more capable than he got credit for.  He stayed at the top of the card for almost twelve years and has a successful career that can not be ignored.  He was a power based wrestler who had just enough charisma to be a top draw.  If only his personal life was half as successful as his professional one Lex Luger would truly be the “Total Package”

No opinion. - 0.4%
No way! - 1.6%
