Also known as The Total Package, he was mostly a WCW product, but he was a top draw during his short run with WWE from 1993 to 1995.
In 1993, the WWE needed a top powerhouse after Hulk Hogan left. Following a huge re-packaging Luger came back on the 4th of July to become the next great American hero.
He body slammed the 600-pound Yokozuna at a special event, held on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier.
The fans quickly forgot his heel debut as The Narcissist and, in no time, the "Luger-Mania" ran over the country in the "Lex-Express" Touring bus.
He had the American flag designed on everything surrounding him, from his trunks to his bus.
After his memorable body slam on Yokozuna, they faced each other at Summerslam for the WWF Championship. Luger overpowered the behemoth to win the match by count-out, but he failed to grab the Title.
With his popular patriotic gimmick, The Total Package continued to overpower the competition for the next months.
He never touched gold and his greatest achievements were a win at the 1993 Survivor Series main event then he became the 1994 Royal Rumble co-winner.
He also headlined Wrestlemania X but he was disqualified during the WWF Championship match against Yokozuna.
After some success in the tag team division, with The British Bulldog as partner, Luger left for WCW, probably bitter about his limited success with WWE.
