Big ESPN/Wrestling Story, Luger, Hart/People’s Court

Ryan Clark


WWE Films’ “The Condemned” will be released on DVD this Tuesday. Steve Austin is scheduled to do DVD signings in Los Angeles and New York City to help support the release.

Marshal Schaffer sent this in: I was watching the People’s Court and they had a case where the plaintiff was suing someone over rent. The person he was suing was who I believe was a wrestling promoter of XWF and WWL. His witness was Jimmy Hart. Unfortunately, the guy didn’t win his court case and lost nearly $5,000.

George Schaffer sent this in: The link below is to the front page, main headline story on ESPN today: Mr. Lex Luger himself, in a tell-all interview. He talks about his addictions, how he ended up a convicted felon, and how he blames himself in part for the death of Miss Elizabeth (“…my influence in her life…Her little heart and body couldn’t take what I was doing.” The story catches you quickly, with the writer making note of the fact that the 49 year-old Luger now needs a cane to walk. As for the rest of the story, it’s some of the same-old we’ve already heard, but A LOT is very informative and sheds new light.
