Lex Luger says he's in "phenomenal" health.

Lex Luger is one of the top wrestling superstars of the '80s and '90s. A crucial part of the Monday Night War, Lex Luger’s return to WCW in 1995 was seen as the first shot in the famed wrestling rating competition.

Unfortunately, through the years, Lex has suffered some health issues. Over a decade ago, he suffered a spinal stroke which limited his mobility. Despite his struggles through the years, Lex Luger says he is currently in phenomenal health and has great mobility.

“It’s mind-boggling. I’m in phenomenal health,” Lex tells Sports Illustrated. “Other than my mobility issues from my spinal cord issue, I’m very healthy, and that’s a miracle of God after what I put my body through. I usually use a wheelchair or a walker, but I can walk some.

“I have great mobility; I drive,” he continued. “But you know how your power will go out for a moment during a storm? That can happen to me, and I’m on the floor before I know it. So I take a lot of precautions. I live totally independently, which wasn’t supposed to happen. I don’t look the same because I don’t hit the weights like I used to, but I’m healthy.”

Nowadays, Lex Luger gets around using a wheelchair but says that he would consider taking the chance of popping out of his chair for his WWE Hall of Fame induction, should the moment ever come.

“I might pop out of the chair for that. I would take that chance if that moment comes. That honor would be the cherry on top of my career,” said Luger.

Lex Luger, his life, and his career will be the subject of the next episode of A&E Biography: WWE Legends. The episode will air on Sunday, August 7 at 8 p.m. eastern time on the A&E Network.
