Source: Forbes

Forbes interviewed Lex Luger, who was promoting his new book, Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler—His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption. Here are just a couple of highlights from the interview:

Difference between the WCW and WWF environments: "They were both very similar. I was more comfortable with WCW only because I lived in Atlanta and the airport travels anywhere. But both companies are very similar. You're both traveling internationally and I mean, there are a lot more similarities than differences, let me put it that way. It was nice to have the option to, obviously of going to a company; leverage and negotiation. It was nice to have one or the other to go to, at the time.

His thoughts on WWE: "The WWE ended up winning the war, the Monday-night wrestling wars, and took over both companies. So now it's all one, great, big conglomerate, internationally, ginormous wrestling entertainment industry now. There's really no close competitors."

Luger also discussed getting into wrestling, using PEDs, if he has any regrets, why he wrote the book and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
