On October 19, 2007, when he was in San Francisco for a wrestling convention, former WCW World Champion Lex Luger suffered a nerve impingement in his neck that led to temporary paralysis. He was sent to the Stanford hospital where he underwent intravenous antibiotic treatment. Nearly a month after what was deemed as “spinal stroke,” Luger was transferred from California to an Atlanta hospital. For a few weeks, Luger was in a quadriplegic state, having no movement in either his arms or legs. Luger was eventually able to lift his legs and move his torso, not to mention hold a can in his hand. Luger has since left the hospital and is now living in his own apartment. He is getting feeling back in his body with each passing week.
