Lex Luger would attempt to walk on stage if inducted into WWE Hall of Fame

Luger will be featured on Sunday's episode of Biography: WWE Legends on A&E.

Lex Luger says being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame would be the "cherry on top of" his career. 

The 64-year-old will be the focus of Sunday's episode of Biography: WWE Legends on A&E. In an interview with Sports Illustrated released on Thursday, Luger spoke about his health and possible induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. 

"It’s mind-boggling. I’m in phenomenal health," Luger said. "Other than my mobility issues from my spinal cord issue, I’m very healthy, and that’s a miracle of God after what I put my body through. I usually use a wheelchair or a walker, but I can walk some."

"I have great mobility; I drive. But you know how your power will go out for a moment during a storm? That can happen to me, and I’m on the floor before I know it. So I take a lot of precautions. I live totally independently, which wasn’t supposed to happen. I don’t look the same because I don’t hit the weights like I used to, but I’m healthy."

Luger was also asked about possibly being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame someday. 

"I might pop out of the chair for that. I would take that chance, if that moment comes. That honor would be the cherry on top of my career."

Thursday is the 25-year anniversary of Lex Luger defeating Hollywood Hogan to win the WCW World Championship on the August 4, 1997 edition of Nitro.
