Leading into the summer of 1993, the WWF was looking for a new leader. Hulk Hogan had just retired/parted ways with the WWF. Somebody thought it would be a good idea to take Lex Luger with his blond hair and big muscles and turn him into the next Hulk Hogan.
The only problem was, Lex is no Hulk Hogan. For me personally, Lex was still “The Narcissist”. He had only made his wrestling debut that spring at Wrestlemania IX. The baby face turn just never worked for me. He was not ready to win the WWF Title.
