Lex Luger Recalls Being “Blindsided” By Babyface Turn In WWE

WWE legend Lex Luger recently took to an episode of his Lex Expressed podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including being blindsided by an abrupt turn from the Narcissist into a babyface in mid-1993 after Hulk Hogan left the company.

Luger said, “I was blindsided by it.” “Vince called me into his office and laid it out. I actually almost thought he was kidding me because I just gotten into the narcissist character, putting a lot of steam on me with that. I was like, ‘Are you serious? Like, go from a narcissist in front of mirrors to red, white, and blue and all that?’ He goes, ‘Yup…’”

“I did the corporate headquarters, thinking back, and a launch, we had all the staff out in the parking garage when I drove off on the bus, my first appearance, it was a matter of days. I had to tell my family, I’m not going to be there all summer, pretty much.”
