Since his high school days, Lex stood out as an athlete, wanting to become a professional football player. He attended Pennsylvania State University on a football scholarship, but was transferred to University Of Miami after a disagreement about his playing position, where he was on the football team with Jim Kelly, the future hall of fame football player. However, Luger`s professional football career ended in 1985, after unsuccessful ventures, as he sat out the whole seasons while being on the Green Bay Packers team.

In 1985, he earned a chance to enter the National Wrestling Alliance Florida territory, which he used pretty well, defeating Cocoa Samoa in his debut fight on 31st October 1985. In November he won the Southern Heavyweight Championship, as he defeated Wahoo McDaniel.

In 1987 he signed with WCW and on 1st July he defeated Nikita Koloff for the United States Heavyweight Championship title. Furthermore, he was in a tag team with Barry Windham with whom he won the NWA Tag Team Championship defeating Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson in 1988.

In 1991 he again won the WCW Championship title in a match against his former tag team partner Barry Windham. Luger`s next fight was against Masahiro Chono as a title defense match, which he won and defended the title, however, he soon lost it to the wrestler Sting, who defeated him at Super Brawl II in 1992.

Until his retirement in 2005, Lex managed to make new friends as well as enemies. He tagged with Davey Boy Smith in a team entitled “Allied Powers”. The duo won fights against the Blu Brothers, consisting of Ron and Don Harris and earned a chance to win the WWF Tag Team Championship, however they lost that fight against Owen Hart and Yokozama.

In 2002, he was featured on the WWA European tour, on which in Dublin, Ireland he first appeared in a tag team with Sting, fighting against Buff Bagwell and Malice ending the match in a victory. In Glasgow, Scotland, Luger fought against Sting for the WWA World Heavyweight Championship, which he won.

He retired in 2005, after one more fight against Sting, which was held in Zurich, Switzerland on 13th December; as he lost the match, he also lost his WWA title.

In 2007, Lex was inducted into the Legend`s Pro Wrestling Hall Of Fame.

When it comes to his personal life, Luger has had trouble with the law on several occasions; one of them was a charge for a domestic dispute with Elizabeth Hulette, his girlfriend at a time. The result was a monetary fine of $2,500. Hulette later died after consuming a cocktail of drugs and alcohol. Further, he was arrested for fighting against his colleague wrestler Marcus Bagwell in a bar, for which he was sentenced to four months in prison

In 2007, Lex suffered nerve damage in his neck which resulted in temporary paralysis; however, he underwent antibiotic therapy and began a process of rehabilitation. In 2010 it was reported that he regained full control of his body and was able to walk comfortably again and to drive.

In his private life, Luger has a son and daughter from his previous marriage to Peggy.
