Lex Luger appeared on Pro Wrestling Powerhouse Radio on August 20, 2013 to promote his new book “Wrestling With The Devil” and talk a bit about his career in the professional wrestling business.

Among the topics Lex discusses include: his start in professional wrestling, weight lifting advice for the fans, The Lex Express, Macho Man Randy Savage, possibly winning the WWE Championship and much more. Here are the highlights:

On the Lex Express & Vince McMahon:

“I thought they were out of their minds! I was all having fun being The Narcissist with the mirrors and the pyro and the girls. And I got called into Vince McMahon’s office off the road. We were travelling 300 days a year then, in Stamford CT. right out New York City here. And, I thought, “What did I do wrong?” I thought I was getting called into the principal’s office. He sat down with me and laid the whole thing out. The slam on the USS Intrepid on July 4th and then he talked about the bus too. He laid it all out for SummerSlam. I thought he was out of his mind, but he was absolutely spot on. He truly is a marketing genius…”

Relationship with Randy Savage:

“Contrary to what a lot of people probably think or might assume, behind the scenes we were always very good friends. Travelled together for long period of time, went to the gym together, travelled to Europe together, we played cards together. Even later on, when I had a relationship with Elizabeth, he’d already been divorced for so many years. He brought other women and valets to television…I think he’s one of the best performers ever, and I’d love to see him in the Hall of Fame…”
