During a recent public appearance, Lex Luger was asked what being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame would mean to him.
"It would just be a tremendous honor if someday I was inducted in the Hall of Fame, but really, we're here to get down to glory to God now with our lives and serve others and use open vessels for him to bring people to Christ," says Luger, who in 2006 declared himself a born again Christian.
Lex continues, "But, would that be an honor? It's something that would also help to use as a platform to continue ministry as well. It would be wonderful, definitely."
According to sources, Luger not being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year as part of the Horsemen clan stems from the events surrounding Miss Elizabeth's death, which occurred on May 1, 2003 in the home they shared. Her cause of death, according to the coroner's report, was "acute toxicity" brought on by a buffet of prescription painkillers and vodka. Many people in WWE blame Luger for her tragic death as he's seen as her enabler. Luger himself has admitted to being a negative influence on her life.
"I take a lot of responsibility for thatómy influence in her life," he told ESPN.com in 2007 regarding his heavy drug abuse, which rubbed off on her during their relationship. "Her little heart and body couldn't take what I was doing."
