It’s Day Three of #LexLugerWeek, the eighteenth installment of our (patent pending) Juice Make Sugar Wrestler of the Week series. Today, we’ll help you trudge through Hump Day with a GIF Parade.
1) Why did we pick him in the first place?
That one’s easy: we’ve decided to spend this month honoring Royal Rumble winners, while also rationing the limited supply of them. And, let’s be honest, not everyone we cover can be Shawn Michaels, William Regal or even Bully Ray.
2) Why did anyone ever think Lex Luger was going to be good?
Hmmm. Well, that’s a harder one.
It’s definitely not his promos
or his smoothness in the ring
or his “presence”
it’s not even the weird enthusiasm he shows for the Torture Rack
It’s that he’s the best person in the history of wrestling at doing this:
Seriously, it’s the only thing he does that has ever looked any good
And even that varies based on how much of Bobby Heenan you have
inside, er, as a part of you
So remember kids: if you ever want to be a professional wrestler without ever really learning how to wrestle, work on your pecs!
