Lex Luger recently appeared as a guest on the Macho Mecca podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During his appearance on the show, “The Total Package” spoke about his relationship with “Macho Man” Randy Savage, the issues Savage had with Hulk Hogan and his own renewed love for the sport of pro wrestling.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On how he always had a great relationship with Randy Savage: “Mach and I always had a great relationship. A lot of people don’t know that. We traveled down the road a lot. In spite of everything, including with Elizabeth, Mach and I always got along really, really well. I didn’t see any personality change with him but talk about a different look. I was like, ‘Mach, you look incredible.’ It might not have been the best for him wrestling-wise because he was carrying a lot of extra weight and none of us were spring chickens anymore at the time, but he looked incredible. Mach was always Mach, and did his personality change along with it? No.”
On Savage’s relationship with Hulk Hogan: “From my perspective, that’s only a question Hulkster or Mach can answer. I always thought they were like what they call ‘sibling rivalry’ or like brothers that are competitive. They were competitive brothers, almost like family. There was an intense competition between them and almost like love/hate. That was kind of their relationship, and really, they both thrived off of it in a way. It fed their careers, and they were both at the pinnacle – two of the biggest names ever in pro wrestling. So, it was kind of dysfunctional, yet productive at the same time. That’s just my perspective on it being around both of them quite a bit.”
On how he has a renewed love for wrestling: “For me, I love my life. I love what I’m doing. I love the Lord. I love you, Marcus [Buff Bagwell]. I love the fans and have a renewed love for wrestling. When I was in the midst of it, I was trying to make it through the travel and the training, but now, I’m a wrestling fan again. Wrestling fans are special, and they were with me through my good times and worst times. I would like to thank all the fans for that.”
