Two years ago, the former World Heavyweight Champion stated in a radio interview that he was counseling WWE talent on nutrition, wellness and exercise as part of the organization's Talent Wellness Program. Speaking to Power Slam to promote his recently released autobiography, Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler - His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption, Luger confirmed that he is still involved with WWE.
"I do informal stuff behind-the-scenes, when I am needed. I enjoy doing that. When they want somebody to tell the young guys all the things that you don't want to do, I'm there," Luger said.
Having been down a dark path culminating with the death of girlfriend Miss Elizabeth in 2003, Luger is able to use his personal experiences to instruct today's wrestlers on a healthier lifestyle.
Elsewhere in the interview, Luger claimed that he was drug-free while appearing for the then-World Wrestling Federation from 1993 to 1995.
"They were pretty strict with the testing when I was in the WWF. During that period, I managed it without drugs," said Luger.
In regards to how often talent were drug tested then, Luger states, "It was strict. They'd sometimes test three or four nights in a row. We called the [people who administered the tests] white coats. We'd never know when they'd arrive. I was pleasantly surprised that I could maintain my physique as well as I did back then [without steroids]."
