Former WCW Champion Lex Luger recently caught up with Bill Apter, who he credited with putting him on the map while he was working in Florida. The two reminisced about Luger’s early years and when Apter got his first look at Luger.
Luger explained what he was up to now that he’s retired, and noted that he’s now involved with charity organizations with another NWA mainstay.
“I just moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. I’m working on a brand new non-profit with Nikita Koloff, the Russian Nightmare. We’re enjoying that. We’re very excited about it. It’s called the World Wrestling Outreach. We do fund-raising for communities through wrestling events, fan friendly events. We go to schools on Fridays and churches on Sundays,” Luger said.
In addition to the wrestling charity in which Luger devotes his time to, he said there was another branch in which promotes physical wellness. Starting in 2011, Luger also worked behind the scenes with WWE to help improve their Wellness program.
“We also do the World Wellness Outreach. That’s for people being physically, mentally, fit,” said Luger.
The two concluded the brief interview with a plug for Bill Apter’s upcoming book. You can see the full interview above.
