Lex Luger recently appeared as a guest on the Under The Ring podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the pro wrestling legend spoke about the spinal cord injury that left him partially paralyzed, as well as his journey of finding spiritual strength.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.
On his current health and mobility: “I was never supposed to be partially paralyzed. I’m what they call a ‘high-functioning quadriplegic.’ I can live independently and feed and bathe myself. I wasn’t supposed to be able to do any of that … It’s really a miracle of God that I can do what I do.”
On looking at the big picture: “I kinda look at — big picture — I feel like I was kinda streamlined and redefined. I was always about the physical Lex, and I was kinda one-dimensional. I was all about the physical. A little bit about the mental … which gave me worldly success, but I was spiritually dead. The spinal cord injury … turned out to be a blessing in disguise.”
