During a recent appearance on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, former WWE and WCW star Lex Luger discussed a number of topics, including the "Body Slam Challenge" that took place on the USS Intrepid in 1993, in which Luger was successful in bodyslamming the late WWE Hall of Famer Yokozuna.
Below is what Luger had to say about the moment:
"Wow 23 years. That was a magical moment. The buildup was incredible. I thought Vince was half crazy when he had me going from being a narcissist looking in mirrors with Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan to being like a big 'Yankee-Doodle Dandy' patriotic hero. I was scratching my head but it turned out fantastic and was a very special moment. The crowd went insane and it happened just the way that Vince had worked it all out. It was just a very, very special moment that so many fans tell me that they were either there or watching it on television and what a great memory it was. It’s definitely one of the main highlights of my career for sure."
